These biscuits come together so easily. They take only about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Last month, I shared my recipe for Low Carb Keto Biscuits. When I tasted them, I was immediately reminded of Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I knew with a few tweaks I could make a delicious low carb keto copycat version. And here it is.

The biscuits come out tender and soft. They are cheesy and garlicky and brushed with garlic butter. The garlic butter topping is key to making them taste like Red Lobster’s version.

A keto and low carb biscuit recipe that tastes like Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits


  • 1 ½ cups superfine almond flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

garlic butter topping:

  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp parsley minced


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease muffin cavities of a 12-cup muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, salt, baking powder, garlic powder.

  3. In a small bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, butter. Whisk until smooth. Pour into large bowl with dry ingredients.
  4. Mix with a whisk or spoon until batter is evenly mixed. It will be quite thick. Stir in cheese.
  5. Scoop ¼ cup of batter and place into muffin mold. The batter is sticky so you will likely need to use a spatula to scrape and remove all the batter from the measuring cup. Repeat until all batter is used up
  6. Bake biscuits about 10-11 minutes or until tops are golden and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Use a thin spatula to loosen edges of biscuits. Remove biscuits from muffin pan.
  8. In a small bowl, dissolve garlic powder into melted butter. Stir in parsley. Brush onto tops of biscuits while the biscuits are still hot and butter is still liquid. Biscuits are best eaten warm.


  • It’s best to bake these in a muffin pan because the batter is very liquid and will spread out too much if you try to bake them free form on a baking sheet.
  • The key to making these taste like Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits is the garlic butter finish. Don’t leave this step out!

  1. I’ve never had the Red Lobster biscuit that the recipe refers too, although my husband has.  We found these quite tasty and I’m defintely adding them to my recipe rotation! I did use a mini muffin pan because it’s our preference, but followed the recipe otherwise.  

    This is the first recipe I have tried of yours after having just found your blog; I’m looking forward to going through your stash of recipes and trying more that for I to our lifestyle!!! 

  2. I absolutely love the Red Lobster biscuits so I’m really excited to try this recipe! Do you know if we can replace almond flour with another nut flour? Also, I just started doing the keto diet so I can’t wait to try out your other keto recipes! Can’t wait for more keto recipes to come 🙂 Thanks!

  3. I sent my daughter the recipe today & she made a batch for me by the time I came home from work.  They are really yummy!  Thank you!  I will look into seeing what else we can make from your site.

  4. Made today, very good. Going to have with homemade keto veggie soup for lunch.

  5. Made these tonight and they were wonderful!! My husband said he wanted to eat the whole batch! We paired these with some roasted cauliflower soup and it was a great keto dinner!

  6. I’ve tried multiple Red Lobster “copycat” biscuits and these were BY FAR the best we’ve ever had!  My husband made the comment that he couldn’t believe they were keto.  Definitely putting these into our weeknight winter dinner rotation!

  7. Is there a way to substitute the sour cream for cream cheese ?

  8. I have made these three times this week since finding your recipe this past weekend! My entire household Loves them! I have stored the leftovers in zip lock bags and they work well when reheated too. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

  9. great recipe, I add more garlic when I fix it!

  10. OMG DO YOU THINK THIS WILL WORK AS A LOAF??? Does it crumble like a reg biscuit or does it resemble the sturdiness of a loaf of bread I’m so excited to try and it looks so bread like !(: please respond I don’t want to waste my ingredients if it will not work- moms coming to visit and I want to make keto friendly food 

    • The recipe works best as muffins because it will take a long time for the batter to cook through if you’re trying to make it as a loaf and it won’t rise high enough to be eaten like bread slices. You can bake the entire batter in a square baking pan and then slice them into squares if you don’t own a muffin pan.

  11. Absolutely delicious! So light and flaky! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  12. I prepared half  of the recipe just in case I didn’t like them. They can even out really good. The only thing I changed was that I double the amount of garlic and more salt. Besides that, I followed the recipe. I liven Red Lobster’s biscuit  and these are pretty close. Thank you!!
