      Recipe Notes

      I've found that coconut flour recipes tend to take longer to cook. If you start slicing your Garlic Biscuits in a Mug and notice it's not cooked all the way through, just popped the portion that is not cooked all the way back in the mug and back in the microwave for another 30 seconds or so. Since all microwaves vary, you'll just have to experiment a bit to find the right length of time for your microwave.
