Strawberry-Coconut Biscuits Not A Success!

So you don't get the idea that everything we've tried is a success, I'm posting our efforts on the Strawberry-Coconut Biscuit recipe on page 80, of Dr. Davis' "Wheat Belly 30-Minute (or less) Cookbook".

I'm not going to waste your time or space here posting the entire recipe, but, suffice it to say, we did follow the directions as written.  After 17 minutes in the oven they came out dry and flaky, too crumbly to pickup and hold!

I even re-crumbled the mixture, added another egg, and some coconut milk, trying to add a bit more moisture.  After cooking another 20 minutes at a lower temperature, the biscuits came out the same.  We discarded them!

They did smell great, and though dry, tasted great, but just too powdery to use.

Maybe someone can post what went wrong...I'd love to know.  I'd really like to try these for breakfast!

My first thought is not enough gluten to hold the biscuit together....which is what it appears you are trying to avoid. Most cookbooks have a handful of recipes that really are good....while the remaining are just page fillers to make up the rest of the 200 pages. This recipe sounds like a loser.

I agree William!
