Tasty Tuesday: easy, safe, SPELT bicuits

Spelt it right- Biscuits!

2-1/4 cups sprouted spelt flour (cannot be warm from grinding or will melt the coconut oil)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
6 tablespoons unrefined, virgin coconut oil, chilled if liquefied at room temp (like during the summer)
3/4 cup milk, coconut milk, or nut milk or yogurt (or even water)
1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)

 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and sea salt. 
Add the coconut oil, then cut it into the flour using a pastry cutter or a fork, until the pieces of oil are the size of peas or smaller. 
Add the milk (or water) and vinegar. Mix lightly with a wooden spoon to barely combine the ingredients. Don’t overmix! 
Transfer the dough to a clean, floured surface [we use corn starch to dust our cutting board] and roll into a rectangle about 1/2″ thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a knife or pizza cutter, cut into 2″ squares.
Transfer squares to parchment on a cookie sheet, leaving space between. 
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to drying rack. Eat!

I know this sounds weird... but we like them hard and dry, so we make momma leave them out to "harden up". So we are weird. But fresh from the oven they are delish with honey!
