I am really excited to share this biscuit recipe with you today. I’ve been testing them all week and trying my hardest not to gobble them all up.

Taste and Texture

These taste just like drop biscuits, similar to ones you might be served as an appetizer at a restaurant. They are soft and tender on the inside and flavored with cheese, garlic, onion powder.

Please don’t expect tall, flaky biscuits– because these are not that kind of biscuit.

Sour Cream Substitutions

The key to the tender and fluffy texture is the use of full fat sour cream. I actually tried a few different variations, but sour cream was my favorite.

However, if you don’t have any sour cream in the house, you can also use cream cheese or plain greek yogurt.

Cream cheese requires a little extra work because you need to soften and beat the cream cheese so that it blends easily into the batter. You will also have a stronger cheese flavor in the biscuits.

Plain Greek yogurt will reduce the fat content of these biscuits. It still keeps the biscuits moist, but they aren’t quite as rich as the sour cream or cream cheese versions.

Variations

The recipe today is for savory cheese biscuits. But you can easily make variations by adding herbs (rosemary, chives, thyme, parsley are all great options) to the batter or swapping the cheddar cheese for a different cheese.

Baking Tips

It’s best to bake these in a muffin pan because the batter is very wet and will spread out too much if you try to bake them free form on a baking sheet.

These tender, soft drop biscuits are ready in less than 30 minutes. You won't miss the flour at all! These biscuits are gluten free, keto and low carb.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

  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 and onion 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

  1. This is a very nice recipe for light biscuits. 

  2. Liked these biscuits very much. They had good texture and were fluffier than I expected. I used smoked cheddar and the taste was great. Will definately make these again. Thanks for sharing

  3. Hi I  made the biscuits today and only got 10 out of the recipe and I followed exact ?

    • Hi, I’m not sure I understand your concern. You say you only got ten but as stated in the recipe box, this recipe yields 9. There’s always some leftover batter so you can stretch it to 10 but I don’t think you should be concerned that you got 10 out of the batch.

      • Oh!! Maybe I thought you were supposed to get 12 because it said to use a 12 muffin pan. So I did do it right then.  Thanks 

  4. You have made my day! I never imagined having a fluffy biscuit while on Keto lifestyle. These are absolutely wonderful. Fluffy and delicious. I baked them for 20 minutes to get the tops a little crispy. These are so good. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. 

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE these biscuits!! simple and turned out perfectly!!

  6. Can these be made a day ahead ? Should I refrigerate them? Thank you. 

  7. Going to try these with a big pot of soup tonight, but I dont have unsalted butter. Will I be ok, if I use salted??

  8. Hi. About to attempt this tonight as a trial for tomorrow… Just wondering if measurements are same for substituting cream cheese, yogurt or sour cream? Thanks

  9. I made these tonight to go with chili. They were so easy to make and so good. Thank you for this keeper ! They taste great and they are beautiful! I ended up with twelve over filled mini muffins! I’m hoping they keep ok til tomorrow bc Hubby and I couldnt eat them all and Im looking forward to a repeat performance! PS I didnt have unsalted butter, so I omitted the salt in the recipe. Question: womder what would happen if you sweetened the batter? Im thinking…cuipcakes…this has a cake like texture.

  10. I Used this recipe for Thanksgiving. They were a hit! Made turkey sliders with them. Thank you so much for posting this!

  11. Made these today, and am so very pleased with this recipe. They are absolutely delicious, and will help me stay on the Keto wagon . . . I have been missing bread/biscuits, and now won’t! Thanks so very much for this recipe.

  12. This is such a great recipe!! My boyfriend and I are obsessed with them! I added a little sprinkle of extra cheese on top. So good! 

  13. I should add that I used 1/2 the butter the recipe it called for and left them in a little longer, about 12 minutes so they could get a little more golden brown on top. Perfection. Thanks for sharing!
