  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons and 1/4 baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoons coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons butter frozen and grated
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 tablespoons chives freshly chopped
  • 1/2 cup yogurt SCD or plain commercial brand
  • 1/2 cup french cream or sour cream
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flours, baking soda, salt, and pepper together.
  3. Cut in the grated butter and the honey until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. Add the shredded cheese and freshly chopped chives and toss to combine.
  5. Add the yogurt, french cream, and coconut milk and mix with a spatula until combined.
  6. Drop dough in 1/4 cup rounds onto prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes or until slightly golden-brown. I like to turn the oven off after they are done and keep them in the oven as it cools. This helps crisp them up some.

Recipe Notes

If you are not following SCD and don't want to make your own yogurt or french cream, you should be able to get the same results by using a plain commercial yogurt brand and sour cream.

Also, using really coarse and hard sea salt provides an extra nice burst of flavor for your taste-buds.
