"This recipe comes from Ali and her blog is called Gimme Some Oven. I can not make a bread recipe to save my life and this one seemed simple and I liked that it used the coconut oil and milk. Ali did mention that the coconut milk was from a carton and not the canned from the shelf and also she used a 2-inch round biscuit cutter."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Step 2

To a mixing bowl add the self-rising flour and the coconut oil. Using a pastry cutter or forks cut the coconut oil into the flour until fine crumbs form. Add milk to flour mixture to make a soft dough that does not stick to sides of the bowl. Knead until combined being careful not to over-knead.

Step 3

Turn dough onto a lightly floured cutting board or other work surface and gently roll to a 1/2-inch thickness. Usa a biscuit cutter to cut biscuits and transfer to a baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake biscuits until they have risen and slightly browning on top, approximately 10 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.

Great recipe for quick and easy biscuits! I didn't have self-rising flour, so I made my own and it worked out perfectly. The dough was very easy to roll out and work with - no stickiness whatsoever. What I loved most about this recipe is the subtle coconut flavor imparted by the oil. It's there (deliciousness!), but not at all overpowering. Thanks for posting - this is a keeper!

Fast and easy, just took minutes to prepare and I had light fluffy biscuits ready for dinner. Nice recipe to have on hand for a fast breakfast or last minute company.

Wow, what a great biscuit ahma, it was light and fluffy, with a lovely subtle coconut flavor. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again. Made as written and wouldn't change a thing. They were quick and oh so easy to make. Just as good cold as they were hot out of the oven. Thanks for sharing another winner. Made for Down Home Cooking Tag Game.

These are great to make with gluten free bread mix! I used Schaer Bread Mix B and added some baking powder. Worked like a spell. WIll make them again and try a bread mix from scratch. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC game

Very good biscuits. I used some leftover coconut milk I had but added some non-fat milk to equal the 3/4 cup required. Good and easy to make. I used a big coffee cup as a biscuit cutter, so only made about six biscuits which is all we needed to go with some soup. I was surprised that these did not taste coconutty at all - but just good biscuits! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderfully light & fluffy, these biscuits are the perfect foil for a bowl of soup or stew! I went to get a can of coconut milk and lo and behold...nary a one to be found. So used regular milk. I am looking forward to making these babies with the coconut. Thank you for sharing ahmafor3! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
