I’m continuing my St. Patrick’s Day celebrations with some Grain Free Irish Soda Bread Biscuits. As a kid I remember helping my mom make Irish Soda Bread every year for St. Patrick’s Day. It was a recipe passed down to her and I loved to help make it…even if I didn’t like the taste of it. Yep, it’s true…as a kid I didn’t like eating Irish Soda Bread…probably because it wasn’t sweet enough. As my tastes changed, I eventually learned to love it, but since I don’t eat grains anymore I needed a grain free Irish Soda Bread version. I ended up coming up with the recipe below. I also remember, spreading butter on the warm Irish Soda Bread. It was always butter…never margarine. At least we got one thing right!
The carb count is a little high on this recipe because of the raisins, but for me Irish Soda Bread only happens once a year so I don’t stress over it. If the carb count is too high for you blueberries, chopped strawberries, or even dark chocolate should work instead.
