- 1 cup lentil flour (from dried green lentils)
- 2 Tablespoons flax seed
- 5 Tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup dried blueberries, optional
- In a food processor, add lentils in batches. Blend into a powder and sieve any large lentils. This process will take lots of time to break the lentils down. Be patient. Note: I bought 2 cups lentils and was able to get 1 cup of flour, the other 1 cup I discarded as I couldn’t get the lentils any finer.
- Preheat oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Soak flax seeds in a small bowl of water for 10 minutes. Discard water, after soaking.
- In a bowl add pumpkin puree and egg, mix together.
- Add flour and flax seeds (and dried blueberries if using).
- Mix together to form a ball. This dough is tough, you may need to use your hands to mix together.
- On a work surface roll out your dough in a long rectangle approx. 6 inches x 20 inches and 1/8 inch thick (it does not have to be perfect).
- Using a sharp knife, cut into 1/2 inch strips (cutting along the short length). See images for reference.
- Take each strip and gently twist. Place twists on your prepared baking sheet and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until browned and crisp.
- Let biscuits cool before serving.
