5 Ingredient Keto Biscuits

Biscuits……cut, drop, buttery, flaky, moist, crispy. So many different types of biscuits. When I was a kid my Mom would make drop biscuits from the famous “Bisquik”.

Those little mounds of bread-like-crumbly-goodness were almost always covered in sausage gravy. Biscuits and gravy was another weekend favorite at our house! I have come to realize that it is definitely an American thing😊 My friend from the UK had never heard of it before! Who would have thought🤔

So yesterday was my husbands birthday and every year I make him lots of goodies from breakfast all the way to dinner! Of course, breakfast was biscuits and gravy! Since he is NOT following a gluten free, keto eating style I made him scratch biscuits with wheat flour. I couldn’t miss out on the yumminess so I made a 2nd batch of biscuits for me!

Now I have tried countless recipes for gluten free, keto, paleo biscuits, but they were mostly ok. Nothing too wonderful to share and shout out to everyone about ……..until now!!

Only 5 ingredients and 10-12 minutes later you will be enjoying some melt-in-your-mouth-goodness that you will be telling everyone about😊

First you will need 1 cup + 2 Tbsp COLD Blanched,Almond Flour, 2 Tbsp COLD butter. If your flour and butter are not super cold the dough will not set up right. If they need to chill, put in fridge for 20min minimum to work.
Add in 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking powder. Begin cutting in the butter, pastry cutter works best here.
It should have a medium crumb consistency. You want little pea size bits of butter.
Now you will need egg whites from 3 LARGE Eggs. Its important they be large so your amounts are not off.
Whisk whites well until frothy.
Cut/stir in egg whites to the dry mix with a KNIFE. It sounds strange, but it helps to keep them light textured.
Your dough should come together like this. Its ready to bake!
I used a cookie scoop to place on my lined cookie sheet. It is approx. 2 Tbsp of batter per biscuit if you don’t have a scoop.
Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 400F oven until golden brown.

Yummy biscuit goodness waiting to be devoured!! These are great warmed up if you have left overs. Makes approx. 6 biscuits.

  1. This is not what this biscuit looks like when it’s done I promise! They don’t taste bad though, but you will need all 6 to have a decent meal.

    1. It is possible with different almond flour to have a different result. I use Bobs Red Mill almond flour. It is a mealy texture in its raw form. I use mine in biscuits and gravy so the shape doesn’t matter much. Thank you for trying out my recipe and leaving a comment😄

  2. I just made these.
    I’m trying to rededicate myself to low carb / low sugar diet. First step cut out McD’s sausage biscuit and replace with egg yolk Keto biscuit.
    Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  3. These were yummy! Unfortunately, the macros came out to be closer to 2.6 net carbs per biscuit (still reasonable!). I used Blanched Almond Flour By Nature’s Eats.
