Weekends are my favorite.  Everyone is together, breakfasts can be longer and slower, tasks and errands decrease and play increases.  The weather was perfection this past weekend.  Hunter played his soccer game in the morning, then we had a family coffee shop trip to Rivermaiden (our favorite Stumptown spot!).  After that there was a whole lot of this.

Backyard relaxing and play time.  The kids were as they should be – covered in dirt and sweat with big grins on their faces.

Now, let’s talk about this food for a minute. These oatmeal almond flour biscuits are the perfect addition to a weekend breakfast.  Spread on some fig jam, add some scrambled eggs and fruit and you are set to win the day.  I’ve been making them for months now, and since it’s still a family favorite, it’s time for me to share this goodness!

The base is almond flour and rolled oats.  Whole wheat flour is added in, but you can also substitute brown rice flour here for a gluten free option.  I’ve made both and the only difference is that the biscuits come out a little more crumbly with the brown rice flour.  A little crumble isn’t a problem for me…. but those toddlers, they love a good mess!

I highly recommend trying fig jam with the biscuits.  We had homemade fig jam from the canning weekend in September, but store bought would be great here as well!  The sweet jam combo paired with the buttery, nutty biscuits is perfect.
