One of the things most people miss when following Keto or a low carb diet is bread. Luckily, there are some amazing products out there that can take traditional biscuits and transform them into really delicious low carb substitutions.
These almond flour biscuits have such amazing texture and can be savory or with a few additions, they can even take on a sweeter flavor. They're like a blank canvas for all your favorite flavors and seasonings.
I recently made some improvements to the recipe to give them a more traditional biscuit texture. So what changed? Instead of using pre-shredded cheese, I finely shredded mine from a block using a microplane, which allowed the cheese to completely melt into the batter.
I also added oat fiber, which is optional, but HIGHLY recommended. Oat fiber is the biggest key to the improving the texture. If you're concerned about having to buy it for just one recipe, check out the plethora of oat fiber recipes I have. I promise you will love the stuff and will not be disappointed!
Lastly, I swapped out the sweetener and changed up the cooking times and temperatures which also helps improve the texture.

🔪 How to Make Almond Flour Biscuits
Preheat your oven to 450°F.
In another bowl, add the eggs, sweetener, sour cream and melted butter and mix until combined.
Add the cheese into the wet ingredients and continue mixing.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix.
Tip: Using an ice cream scoop helps to ensure the biscuits are the same size and cook evenly. By cooking them in muffin cups, they rise better and do not spread out as much.
Lower the temperature to 350°F and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
Tip: This last step helps to slightly dry the biscuits out a bit, making them closer to a traditional biscuit, rather than a muffin.
Allow to cool slightly before cutting into and serving.

Best Way to Store Low Carb Biscuits
This almond flour biscuit recipe, stores really well right on the counter top for a couple of days. You can use a muffin keeper like this one to ensure their optimal freshness. If you don't have a muffin keeper, just place them in the fridge for up to a few days.
Can You Freeze Keto Biscuits?
They freeze very well. Wrap leftover biscuits individually in plastic wrap or place them in an airtight container and freeze for up to month or two. When you're ready to serve them, just set them on the counter for about 30 minutes to thaw.
What are the Carbs in a Keto Biscuit?
Gluten free flours have been a huge benefit for Keto bakers. Traditional biscuits have somewhere around 25-30 grams of carbs each! If you're following Keto, that's more than a whole days worth of carbs.
But, by using almond flour, these little clouds of goodness, only have 2 net carbs each. How fantastic is that?! With the substitution of almond flour, you can enjoy low carb biscuits without having to abandon your Keto goals!
