This Keto Biscuits Gravy recipe has buttery, flaky homemade almond flour biscuits and creamy sausage gravy.

A classic, comforting, savory breakfast with only 3.7 grams of net carbs per serving!

If you don’t feel like a classic keto breakfast recipe like keto scrambled eggs or fried eggs, try these hearty, easy keto biscuits and gravy for breakfast!

The best part is that this recipe is super easy to make, using only basic keto ingredients, and it stores very well to meal prep your next breakfast.

How To Make Keto Biscuits And Gravy

First, you need to make your keto biscuits and then the sausage gravy.

Let’s see below how you can make both very quickly to meal prep a week of comforting keto breakfast.

Making the keto biscuits

Before you start making the sausage gravy, prepare a batch of fluffy keto biscuits following my Keto Biscuit Recipe.

These almond flour keto biscuits are:

  • made with 5 simple ingredients,
  • ready in 30 minutes
  • freeze well for later

Also, you can use keto biscuits with different breakfast toppings like heavy whipped cream and keto jam.

Making The Keto Sausage Gravy

Classic sausage gravy is not keto-friendly. It contains a lot of carbs from milk and flour.

Let me show you below how to make a creamy gravy with brown breakfast sausage crumble without the carbs!


In this keto gravy recipe, I am using only low-carb keto ingredients including:

  • Sausage Crumbles – I am using organic pork sausage crumbles in this recipe.
  • Heavy cream – can be replaced with canned coconut cream for a dairy-free paleo option, but beware, this adds carbs and a strong coconut flavor to the gravy! Learn why heavy cream is a good keto-friendly dairy product.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – you can also use half almond milk, and half chicken broth if preferred. I personally love this recipe more with only almond milk, much creamier and similar to classic sausage gravy.
  • Xanthan gum – it acts as a thickener, don’t skip it, or the gravy won’t be thick and smooth. If you don’t like xanthan gum, or if you can’t tolerate this ingredient, swap heavy cream for the same amount of cream cheese. It will not thicken the sauce as much, but it still adds a great texture.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Garlic powder – optional, but it adds a lovely flavor to the gravy.

Browning The Meat

First, fry the sausage crumbles in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.

You can add a tablespoon of olive oil if your sausage stick too much to your pan.

Cook the meat until brown and not pink, stirring often. It takes about 5 minutes.

Making The White Gravy Sauce

Now that the meat is cooked through remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon, and set it aside on a plate covered with foil while you prepare the sauce.

Pour heavy cream, unsweetened almond milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper into the pan and whisk.

Sprinkle the xanthan gum all over the pan and keep whisking gently to prevent lumps from forming.

Never add the xanthan gum all at once, or it forms lumps most of the time.

Cook, and simmer the sauce over medium-high heat until it thickens. Continue to whisk slowly to prevent the formation of lumps from the gum.

When the sauce is thick, about 2-3 minutes later, bring back the browned meat to the pan, stir, cover, and simmer on low heat to medium for 5 minutes.

This gives time to the meat to release its flavor into the gravy. Stir occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pan.

Serving Keto Gravy And Biscuits

This keto recipe for biscuits and gravy serves 10 breakfasts. One serving includes:

  • One keto biscuit – the recipe makes 10 biscuits, 3 tablespoons of batter per biscuit.
  • 1/3 cup keto low carb sausage gravy

Slice your keto biscuit in half, place the two pieces of biscuits on a plate, cut side facing you.

Pour 1/3 cup of sausage gravy over the biscuit and eat straight away.

You can add some fresh chopped Italian parsley on top of the gravy for flavor. It won’t add carbs.

Storage Instructions

You can store the keto gravy in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

The biscuits can also be stored in a zip-lock bag in the fridge for the same duration.

Meal prepping your keto breakfast

A great way to meal prep plenty of keto sausage biscuits and gravy for your next breakfast is to freeze them. This is how I recommend freezing your food to make each breakfast easy and delicious.

Freeze the sausage gravy in small ziplock bags or containers – 1/3 cup at a time, so you know that one bag equals one serving.

Freeze all the biscuits in a large sealed box. They are easy to remove from the box even if frozen together in the same container.

Rewarming your keto sausage gravy and biscuits

The day before, thaw the gravy in the fridge and place the biscuit on a plate on the countertop.

The next morning, slice the biscuit. You can toast each slice in a toaster to bring back some crispiness the day before serving.

Rewarm the gravy over low heat in a saucepan or simply microwave in a bowl. Serve the hot gravy over the sliced biscuits.

Allergy Swaps

If you have dairy allergies, I have a great swap to recommend for the gravy.

Keto sausage gravy

This recipe may contain Amazon or other affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.


  • Before you start this recipe, bake 1 batch of my keto biscuits recipe. While the biscuits are baking, make the keto sausage gravy.
  • In a large non-stick pan, brown the crumble sausage over medium heat until cooked through – about 3-4 minutes. If your meat sticks to your pan, drizzle 1 teaspoon of olive oil into the skillet.
  • Remove the pan from the heat. Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked sausage from the pan and set it aside on a plate and cover with foil to keep warm while you make the sauce.
  • Return the pan over medium heat. No need to clean the pan. Add unsweetened almond milk, heavy cream, salt and paper, garlic powder. Gently whisk and sprinkle xanthan gum at the same time. This prevents the gum from forming lumps in the sauce. Never add gum all at once, or it forms little lumps.
  • Bring to a light simmer, whisking gently to thicken then reduce to low heat, and bring the meat back into the pan. Stir to combine, cover and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes to give time for the meat to flavor the gravy.

Serving biscuits and gravy

  • Serve 1/3 cup of the hot gravy on top of one keto biscuit cut in half.


  • Store gravy in a sealed container in the fridge for 3 days.
  • Store the biscuit in another container or a ziplock bag for 3 days in the fridge.
  • Freeze the gravy in single-serve portions, 1/3 cup per container. Biscuits can be frozen in a large sealed container.
  • The day before serving, thaw the gravy in the fridge and leave the frozen biscuit on a plate on the kitchen countertop. Rewarm the gravy the next morning in the microwave or over medium heat in a saucepan. You can rewarm the biscuit cut in half in a bread toaster.

    12 Thoughts On Keto Biscuits and Gravy
  1. 5 stars
    I just made this gravy recipe exactly as written. Instead of your biscuits I made ATK dream biscuits using the keto flour 2.0. Wow, so good. I think this was better than my husband’s go-to non-keto recipe. I think he would love this too. Too bad he is out of town. Thank you for making the keto diet feel more “normal”.

  2. 4 stars
    Everyone liked the taste, but 1 teaspoon of xantham gum is too much. Start with 1/4 and stir in 1/4 at time if you need more.

    • 5 stars
      I agree, a whole tsp of xantham gum gives the gravy an unpleasant ‘slimey’ mouth feel.
      The recipe is very tasty and easy, however as Bobby stated, gradually add a bit…most likely 1/4 tsp or 1/2 is enough.

  3. 5 stars
    My favorite food is biscuits and gravy. I’ve been doing keto for several weeks and have been craving gravy and biscuits for two days. I tried this today and it really hit the spot… satisfied my craving. ❤️

  4. 4 stars
    Got you another typo,
    under directions.
    Add milk, cream, salt, PAPER, garlic. But in the ingredients you don’t list the pepper or how much.
    We love garlic, so I put in a teaspoon and a teaspoon of pepper.
    I didn’t add the xanthan gum all at once. I started with a 1/2 then added another 1/8, too much can make a dish taste gummy.
    3/4 teaspoon was plenty.
    It was good, but still needs something. My wife suggested 1/4 teaspoon of pepper flakes. That’s what she does in her gravy that she makes from a packet.
    She challenged me to make biscuits and gravy and with your wonderful recipes I trumped her.
    She was impressed, me too.
    Thank you!!!
