Our obsession for this recipe started with an odd craving for biscuits. And because there was a bag of flour at home, as well as some milk and coconut oil, the experimentation began. Luckily, everything turned out well. Here’s the recipe:


  • ¾ cup milk refrigerated milk is fine
  • 2 cups self-rising flour


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the self-rising flour and coconut oil. A pastry cutter can be used to cut the break down the solid oil into the flour. Do it until you achieve a fine crumb-like mixture.
  • Slowly stir in the milk until you form a soft dough that does not stick to the sides.
  • Knead the dough to combine the ingredients. Be careful not to overdo it.
  • Dust a cutting board with flour. Gently roll the dough into it until you achieve a ½ inch thickness.
  • A biscuit cutter can be used to cut out the dough.
  • Transfer the pieces into a baking sheet and bake for at least 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
