The Best Low-Carb Keto Biscuits Recipe

I can’t believe it has taken me this long to finally create the perfect low-carb biscuit! I have tried so many biscuits that are flavorless and taste like wood chips. I was thrilled when I took my first bite of this incredible biscuit, it is so flavorful and melts in your mouth.

It really tastes like a buttery biscuit! Not like the hard hockey puck biscuits that bakeries try to sell. No wheat flour is needed for this incredibly delicious melt-in-your-mouth biscuit! Almond flour is blanched and finely ground. It creates a better texture in baked goods.

I have tried many recipes in hopes of finding one that matched my Grandma’s biscuits, these are the best, yes, they are that good! The cheese and the garlic puts the flavor over the top!

What to Serve with Low-Carb Biscuits

Since we are having such a cold spring, I’m really in a comfort food mode. My favorite top 5 comfort food is keto biscuits. I think that I will have to make another batch to go with my Ham and Bean Soup that I made today. I’m thinking of making a batch of biscuits may be the thing to do. They’re simple and familiar and remind me of all of the good times with family. Serve these delicious biscuits with a big bowl of soup or stew, or serve them with an omelet.

How to Store the Low-Carb Keto Biscuits

I’ve had no problem storing these low-carb keto biscuits in the refrigerator for a week. You can warm them up in the microwave or oven right before serving. They also freeze well, so you could even make a few batches to have on hand for a long time. You can’t go wrong with that.

This recipe makes 12 keto biscuits. I used my favorite baking pan and they turned out perfectly golden brown.

This was one of the best low carb biscuits I\’ve tried! I used a deep muffin tin so the recipe made 5 biscuits at 7g carbs per biscuit – the whole pan was 36g with my ingredients so it just depends on the size of your biscuit and brand of ingredients. Since I was making this for breakfast, I didn\’t include the garlic powder but will definitely try it in the next batch! Thanks for sharing!

Made this low carb biscuits for my diabetic husband, these were a hit. Light and fluffy. I used the full fat greek yogurt and baked in a 350 oven in a loaf pan around 40 minutes, since i didn\’t have a muffin tin.

If you put the recipe link in MyFitness Pal it will give you the nutritional information. Not sure how accurate it is, but it seems to be close.

I made these tonight, and they were really good. Mine were light, fluffy, and NOT the least bit gritty. One change: used ricotta cheese instead of sour cream. Have had great success using that in other non-Keto but gluten-free biscuits. I used Bob’s Red Mill almond flour. (Made a keto-friendly sausage gravy to go atop the biscuits). Will definitely make again and again – minus the garlic powder. It appears that I will more than likely need to add a tiny bit of xanthan gum if I want to use them as part of a breakfast sandwich.

This is the only recipe I ever use and I have tried several. Follow the recipe and you get consistent results every time. If you made it out of elementary school you can calculate the carbs yourself. If you can’t do that, you probably shouldn’t be using an oven…

It be nice for you to give the nutritional info. Saying it is low carb doesn’t necessarily make us believe you. I will now move on to another recipe that has nutritional information!

If a person with a normal level of reading comprehension would look at this recipe, they would understand it is low carb. All of the ingredients are low carb. These authors are not nutritional experts, so they shouldn’t have to post nutritional info.

I made these biscuits and definitely did something wrong. Mine did not stay together and were crumbly. The only difference I made was using coconut flour instead of almond flour not sure if this made the difference. Help please

Amber
4 years ago

coconut flour is not a 1:1 sub for almond flour so that was the issue

mike
4 years ago

It sure does make a difference! Coconut flour is way more absorbent than Almond flour and would suck all the moisture out.

Shannon
2 years ago

You only need 1/3c coconut flour to replace a cup of almond flour. And even then you might have to play around with the recipe depending on what effect you’re getting up. Out of all the changes you could have made you make the hugest change you could possibly have made

Christine Perry

I made these too. Really lovely but they fell apart when eating them , too crumbling.

Kristie

Made 1/2 recipe tonight, but ran out of sour cream so used ricotta and a splash of HWC. In doing so, I forgot to halve the amount, so ended up using 1 Tbs sour cream and 4 Tbs ricotta. They took a few more minutes to bake in the individual brownie pan – but they were delicious! Can’t wait to make another batch the correct way!

Made these biscuits this morning and they were great! Had 2 biscuits with eggs and sausage. They were very filling! Love the texture and the taste. I omitted the garlic since I wanted a breakfast biscuit. For me I thought the texture was a cross between a cornbread and a biscuit. It would be great with some chili topped with sour cream, cheese, green onion, and avocado! Yummy!

I want to Thank you for this awesome recipe! I have wasted expensive ingredients on other biscuit and dinner roll recipes. This will be my go to from now on! I got 10 biscuits, and added italian seasoning ( only because of the little specks in my almond flour, I know it is just part of the almond, but creeped my out, looks like bugs lol) Thanks again!

Karin

Tried these for the first time and amazed how good they were. Usually the low carb biscuits I make are mealy. My husband made chicken and biscuits and these were perfect! Eliminated the garlic powder and made half that way. Other half I added blueberries! Yum! Freezing them to enjoy later as well. Thank you!

Margie

I just made these low carb biscuits and they are WONDERFUL! I made them in my muffin top pan and got 12 nice sized biscuits. I had to taste one before serving them – just to make sure they were as good as all the reviews said – they did not disappoint. Thank you so much for a recipe that actually looks and tastes like “real” biscuits. They are lighter and fluffier than any other recipe I’ve tried. We’ll be having these quite often, I’m sure.

These were great!!

In my second batch, I omitted the garlic, added a little more shredded cheese, and added 4 strips of cooked and finely chopped bacon. Made them small – yield 12. Once baked, we cut them in half and put a scrambled egg in between for bacon, egg, cheese sandwiches!

I’ve made these about 4 or 5 times and they always come out perfect.. this morning I decided to do a sweet biscuit and left out the cheese and garlic powder and added 1 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp of nutmeg 1/3 of a cup of sweetener and a 1 tsp of vanilla and they were a big hit.. thanks for this recipe it’s a true crowd pleaser

Angie

I made these and they turned out excellent! I’ve been recommending the recipe to all my girlfriends. Beautiful looking and the best tasting grain free low carb baked good I’ve made. I read the lack of fluff complaints above. I have no clue what that’s about but I will say I find with any baking with almond or coconut flour it’s best to keep the wet mixture aside and slowly stir the dry stuff into it rather than mixing the wet into your dry ingredient bowl. You can keep it more airy and less chance of over stirring that way.

Lisa Boccio

My husband and I love these biscuits. We’ve made them twice and they were perfect both times. He is type 2 diabetic and so happy we found this recipe. They are delicious and fluffy and light. I clicked the link and got the great pan you suggested. We wanted a larger biscuit so I doubled the recipe. We also added more cheese the second time we made them. You could also leave out the cheese and garlic and have the biscuits with jelly or honey. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

Kathy

They tasted like wheat? cornmeal biscuits to me but I used Bob’s red mill super fine almond flour which has a slight gritty texture?
I’m hoping to find better almond flour & try again.
Thanks for sharing this!

Lisa Boccio

I used Trader Joe’s Blanched Almond Flour and there was no grittyness.

Kathy Hantle
6 years ago

I used Natures Eats blanched almond flour. These were 1st biscuits I made w almond flour that we actually sort of liked! Others I threw out! They were crumbly, but still need something?
I’m going to try a bit of mayo next time in the batter too!

Rebecc
6 years ago

Made this recipe but was craving a more sweet type of bread AND I didn’t have sour cream. So. I substituted 1/3 cup of mayo for the sour cream left out the cheese and garlic and added 2 Tbs of swerve (could have gotten by with just one) but the outcome was really great and just what I was shooting for! The texture was airy and fluffy more like a cornbread…oh I also only used part of a whole egg and 1 egg white.

Donna

I’ve done something similar with Splenda, vanilla, cinnamon instead of cheese and garlic… Yummy

Liz

Hi dont know what happened but I didnt have a good outcome. I followed the recipe to the tee including the tablespoon of baking powder which i thought was way too much. It tasted like pure salt and the garlic was never mentioned in the steps. What did I do wrong? All the ingredients were good. Nothing was anywhere near expiration…

A. Skilling

These were awesome. I did not add garlic. But they were great. I am new to me carb. I jsut started because I am type two diabetic. Thanks to low carbs and medication. I have lost 6.5 pounds in the last 3 weeks and keeping my blood sugar below 120 with medication. So thank you for your recipe. It helps and they are very filling.

Made these tonight. They were fantastic. My daughters ate several. I’d pay for these in a restaurant. Reminds me of the cheddar biscuits at red lobster.

I made the dough for 12 biscuits but once divided into my muffin pan I got 9 so calories below were the 12 recipe divided into 9 biscuits instead of 12.

I added up using the food labels on the ingredients I used and got:

Calories: 185 per biscuit. (1/9)
Total carbs: 4.8g
Net carbs 2.4g per biscuit. (1/9)

If you divided the recipe into 12 it is 139 calories and 1.8 net carbs.

Number of biscuits just depends on how you fill your pan. I preferred the thicker biscuit so did nine bigger rather than 12 smaller.

Thanks for this very good recipe.

Laura

I tried it again with a butter flavored cheese called butterkase from Germany. Perfect!!!! Same changes no garlic and added Splenda. Tastes like the biscuits I grew up with. Use with a sugar free fruit spread called La Nouba from Belgium. I am so happy!!!. Made a double batch. Hope they freeze well. Thank you so much this was the only recipe worth experimenting with and it’s easy to make.

These are winners! I omitted the garlic powder and added heaping tsp of Splenda. Cooked in a cupcake pan coated with coconut oil.

Martha B

My husband has an almond allergy. Is there a different “flour” that would work? I am afraid that coconut “flour” would be too dense.
