I am excited to eat this in the morning so let me show you how to make these easy gluten-free biscuits at home!
This is the best keto biscuit recipe with a buttery, flaky texture, slightly salty and crumbly on top.
Let’s see the easy ingredients you need to make these fluffy almond flour biscuits:
First, preheat your oven to 180C/355F and line a large baking tray with parchment paper. Spray olive oil on the paper to prevent the biscuits from sticking to the paper. Set aside.
To make the biscuits, simply bring all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Next, add in the melted butter and beaten eggs/egg white. Finally, stir with a spoon until a smooth, wet batter forms.
Spoon about 3 tablespoons of batter to form one biscuit onto the prepared tray. Wet your finger and smoothen the top and side if desired or leave them as-is for a rough look as on my pictures. You will form 10 biscuits with this recipe.
Bake the biscuits in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes or until the outside is golden brown. Don’t overbake or they get dry in the center. Cool the baked goods down on a cooling rack for 15-20 minutes.
Yes, you can grease a 12-hole muffin tin and fill each hole with 3 tablespoons of batter. This recipe will fill only 10 holes as it makes 10 keto breakfast biscuits.
You can use this almond flour biscuits recipe to make savory keto cheese biscuits.
Simply add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the batter and decrease the salt to 1/4 teaspoon.
This keto drop biscuits are delicious breakfast biscuits with any sweet or savory toppings. The best combination are:
These keto biscuits taste like buttery keto bread.
It is flaky, fluffy, moist, and delicious as a breakfast bread or side to my keto cauliflower soups. Their looks can be rough or smooth on top depending on how you handle the dough.
Their color is lighter and whiter if you use coconut oil rather than butter. Cheese also increases their yellow and rough look.
Below is a picture using coconut oil, no cheese and I smoothened the outside. This shows you the difference in appearance based on how you work the dough.
Yes, you can freeze these gluten-free biscuits in a sealed container. Thaw the biscuits on a plate at room temperature the day before
Rewarm the biscuits sliced in half in a bread toaster or bring back to the oven at 100C (212 F) for 2-3 minutes.
Otherwise, store the low-carb biscuits in the fridge in a ziplock bag or sealed box for up to 3 days.
If you have food allergies or restrictions, I listed below some keto dairy-free and keto nut-free options to adapt this recipe.
Dairy-free – you can replace the butter with the same amount of melted coconut oil. I recommend using refined coconut oil, it doesn’t have a coconut flavor
Nut-free – there are a few keto nut-free flours that you can use to replace almond flour. The best keto nut-free flours are sesame flour, pumpkin seed flour, and sunflower seed flour. All these seed flours can be used in the same amount as almond flour, to replace the nut flour in this biscuits recipe.
Egg-free – there are no egg-free options for this keto biscuit recipe. However, if it’s the eggy taste that makes you hesitant to try this recipe, don’t! These biscuits have no eggy flavor as the recipe uses only 2 egg yolks for the entire batch. Egg yolks are the main reason why keto baked goods smell or taste eggy and it won’t happen here.
Vegan followers, I am sorry but the recipe won’t work with flax egg or egg replacer.
