Millet Chocolate Chip Tea Biscuits

I am constantly trying to use different flour combinations. I do this to gain the health benefits of different grains, and also to make sure I'm not overloading my system with only one type of grain.

One grain that I particularly love is millet. I love to use it as grits, cook it as cereal, bake the flour into bars, biscuits, and breads. It does tend to make things a little bit more crumbly, so if you try substituting it out, make sure to take that into account. One of my favorite recipes is Millet Chocolate Chip Tea Biscuits.

Millet Chocolate Chip Tea Biscuits
Inspired By the Flying Apron

1 3/4 C. Millet Flour
1 C. Tapioca Starch Flour
1 1/2 C. + 1 Tbs Garbanzo Bean Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 tsp Salt
1 C. Canola Oil
1 C. Sugar
1 C. Rice Milk
1 C. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

  1. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Combine canola oil and sugar in a stand mixer. Add the flour and rice milk alternately.
  3. Add chocolate chips, mix briefly.
  4. Chill the dough for three hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 360 degrees.
  6. Scoop out the dough with an ice cream scooper, place on parchment paper covered baking sheet, and slightly flatten.
  7. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Those biscuits look perfect! I love millet..Though, I've only had the flour. For some reason the actual grain is really scarce here.

They look fantastic! How'd you get the chocolate chips to be on top like that? Did that just occur naturally? Gosh, I want one of these. :-)

After scooping them out, and pressing them out, I pressed a couple of chocolate chips into the top. So glad you like!

Thanks, Jillian. I suspected that, but didn't want to assume. LOL Great touch!
