Low Carb Biscuits

Print Friendly

DSCF9208The more I read about wheat, the less I want to eat any. That’s why I made a new biscuit recipe without Carbquik. These can be made as a plain biscuit, or you can add the cheddar and garlic for a low carb garlic cheddar biscuit. These are also gluten-free.





Low Carb Biscuits

1 1/2 cups almond flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons baking powder

2 eggs

1/3 cup sour cream

4 tablespoons melted butter

1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray. (These spread out too much and puff up too little on a cookie sheet. Use a pan with 12 wells.) Mix all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and combine thoroughly. Drop about 2 heaping tablespoons in each well. Bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.

NET carbs 2 per biscuit

  1. These look really delicious. I am glad you have made them GF. Do you have the carb count on these?? Thanks for all your great recipes.

  2. You have got to be kidding, no flax, simple ingredients, and only 2 carbs per serving. Amazing! Next on my list to make, thank you!

  3. Cant wait to try them. I have alk the ingredients minus the sour cream. Thx for the recipe!

  4. These biscuits are wonderful! I didn’t have sour cream so used full-fat Fage Greek yogurt. It worked beautifully but I will try these using the sour cream as well after my next trip to the grocers! Thank you very much!

  5. Made these tonight and now I’m kicking myself for only making 1/2 a batch. These are DELICIOUS! Even my husband, who is often not thrilled to eat my experiments, devoured his portion.

  6. These were delicious. My husband liked them, and usually isn’t a fan of low carb concoctions. I didn’t have enough sour cream so I added a little cream cheese to make the 1/3 cup and they turned out just fine!

  7. I made these biscuits tonight to go with my “breakfast for supper” and I just want you to know they are FANTASTIC!!! They taste very similar to the 7up biscuits I use to make before my husband and I went low carb. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipes!! I also have made several other of your recipes and they are fabulous too!! :-) especially the chicken broccoli casserole!! yum! yum!!

  8. Hi, I made these with cheese — quite good, next time I’ll add some herbs.

    Question: Do you really mean 2 TABLEspoons of baking powder? It seems quite a lot.

    • I’m glad you liked them. I do actually use 2 tablespoons. Almond flour just seems so much heavier to me that I tend to use more baking powder than I did when I used regular flour.

  9. I made these biscuits to go with our shrimp scampi tonight and everyone LOVED them! Thank you so much! I cannot wait to try your other recipes…everything looks delicious!

  10. These are really awesome! They were a touch salty but it may have been the butter I plopped on top of one…..and yes, my hubby liked them too and he doesn’t usually like low-carb stuff. Thanks for the recipe!! I’m taking them to work tomorrow to sub for the usual high carb biscuits!

  11. I love these biscuits! I tried modifying them today and they were even more flour biscuit-like! I swapped a 1/2 cup almond flour for a 1/2 cup oat _fiber_ (0 net carbs). They held their shape better and were so much like flour biscuits.
