Sometimes, nothing comforts quite like a warm, gooey cheddar biscuit — unless, of course, you have a gluten intolerance. Enter this recipe from the Wheat Belly Cookbook. These dense, flavorful biscuits are made with an almond meal and flaxseed mix. The result? A protein- and fiber-filled biscuit that's also high in heart-healthy omega-3 fats. Make a batch and serve as a burger bun or alongside your favorite gluten-free gravy.
