If you’ve been reading my blog at all in the last year, you know I love my coconut flour. And you also know I love bacon. So today when I got the hankering to bake something new, and flipped through Cooking with Coconut Flour, as soon as my eyes hit “Bacon Drop Biscuits” I gasped. When I asked the guy if he would want some, he looked at me with an, “Are you crazy? You know the answer to that!” look on his face. So I set to work in the kitchen while the baby napped.


The recipe in the book calls for salt, but I left it out with no ill effects. I figured the bacon and bacon drippings were salty enough.

Grain-Free Bacon Drop Biscuits

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

You will need:

  • bacon
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • the drippings from your bacon – 1/4 cup

Start cooking some bacon. The book says 6-8 strips, but I just did as many as my pan could hold, which was probably around 5.

While the bacon cooks, sift together the coconut flour and baking powder

In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs.

When the bacon is done cooking, set it aside to cool, and whisk the drippings in with the eggs. I was afraid to cook/curdle the eggs, so I drizzled the drippings in very slowly while whisking with my other hand. That worked fine.

Combine the eggs with the flour mixture until it’s smooth.

Chop up your bacon while the dough/batter sits and melds (always a good idea for coconut flour recipes to let it sit a bit).

Fold the bacon into the dough, then drop onto a greased cookie sheet. I used one of those cookie scoopers and got 9 lumps. (The picture only has 6 because we already ate 3!)

Bake 15 minutes.


These are a tiny bit dry on their own, as are a lot of coconut flour things. But with a schmear of butter over them? They’re perfect. I think they’d be awesome with some cheddar cheese mixed in too.

I just found your site and am SO happy about all of your recipes with coconut flour. My husband and I are on the SCD plus I have life-threatening allergy to tree nuts and peanuts (the list goes on), so no almond flour, and have only partially succeeded with our coconut flour — very excited, thank you!

I tried making these tonight and they didn’t puff up like yours. They are flat, like a cookie. Any thoughts on what I did wrong? Maybe my baking powder needs to be replaced.

I had the same problem. I think different brands of coconut flour are more dense than others, so I’d say add a little bit more coconut flour if the batter looks too runny. Add flour till the batter holds it’s shape. Also make sure you grease the pan!!! I forgot to and they were very stuck. lol. My bad.

I’m looking forward to trying these! I’ve never tried coconut flour, though, and admit to being a little apprehensive.

I am so excited to make these. I just hope I can find the time to do it this week!

Those look good, and I just got some coconut flour too. If you can make some coconut flour cookies that aren’t dry and crumbly though, that would be beyond awesome. All the recipes I’ve tried so far were not good.

I always forget about drop biscuits- great idea, and no muffin pan to wash! :)

These look fantastic! Do they have a coconut flavor to them at all?
