Cauliflower Biscuits with Bacon & Jalapeño (Paleo & Low Carb)

Cauliflower Biscuits with Bacon & Jalapeño (Paleo & Low Carb)
Cauliflower is super low in calories, yet contains several health-benefiting antioxidants and vitamins. High in fiber, calcium, iron, and potassium. Here the Cauliflower soaks up the flavor of the spices, jalapeño, & bacon perfectly- giving an awesome savory biscuit-like taste.

Ingredients
  • 2 bags (. each) cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup fully cooked bacon, chopped (or go for bacon bits to save time!)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped (keep the seeds if you like it spicy!)
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Using a food processor with a shredding blade attachment, shred the cauliflower.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Sauté the shredded cauliflower with jalapeño, bacon, & spices for about 7 minutes to get the cauliflower cooking (should be softened & slightly translucent).
  5. Remove from heat, and stir in the eggs & almond flour.
  6. With a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I tap the cup down firmly onto the sheet to make sure it all comes out & keeps a good shape.
  7. Bake the biscuits at 400ºF for 35-40 minutes, or until they look browned & crispy.
  8. Allow the biscuits to cool on the sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Notes
They store well in the fridge & taste great reheated too~ if they last long enough!
