Classic Drop Biscuits

I miss having dropped eggs on biscuits…this recipe results in a differently textured, but delicious  treat! Rough nutritional data… 12g net carbohydrate, 9.5g sugar, 3.8g fiber,   24.5g fat, 8.3g protein, 27mg sodium

Update…These are a dark color, probably due to the use of regular almond flour instead of blanched. I prefer this mixture as a dessert biscuit – they are awesome with berries and whipped cream!
