Low Carb Keto Biscuits

These low carb keto biscuits are so tender and fluffy, you won’t believe they are flourless. They take less than 30 minutes to make and are gluten free, keto and low carb.

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.

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

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease muffin cavities of a 12-cup muffin pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, salt, baking powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • In a small bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, butter. Whisk until smooth. Pour into large bowl with dry ingredients.
  • Mix with a whisk or spoon until batter is evenly mixed. It will be quite thick. Stir in cheese.
  • 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
  • Bake biscuits about 10-11 minutes or until tops are golden and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow biscuits to cool slightly before eating.

Notes
