Keto Breakfast Biscuit recipe

Can you have biscuits on keto?

No, you can’t have a regular biscuit recipe as a keto breakfast. The traditional biscuit recipe is made of high-carbs ingredients like wheat flour and milk. But the good news is, you can make keto-friendly biscuits using keto-approved flours.

Check my keto recipe below and say yes to fluffy buttery biscuit! How happy are you to know that you can eat biscuits on a keto diet?

I am excited to eat this in the morning so let me show you how to make these easy gluten-free biscuits at home!

How to make keto biscuits?

This is the best keto biscuit recipe with a buttery, flaky texture, slightly salty and crumbly on top.

Ingredients for fluffy keto biscuits

Let’s see the easy ingredients you need to make these fluffy almond flour biscuits:

  • Almond flour – I recommend using ultra-fine almond flour for a moist biscuit. Almond meal works in this recipe but the texture and color will be different. Expect gritty biscuits with a darker color if you use almond meal. Also, don’t replace almond flour with coconut flour, it won’t work at all. Coconut flour contains 4 times more fiber than almond flour and swapping one for the other will make rock-solid biscuits!
  • Eggs
  • Egg white – the combination of egg white and eggs is very important to avoid an eggy flavor in your biscuits. In fact, using too many egg yolks makes the biscuits eggy.
  • Baking powder – for a light and fluffy biscuit. You can replace the baking powder with half the amount of baking soda if preferred.
  • Melted coconut oil or melted butter – I do prefer coconut oil for this biscuit recipe, the texture is much crispier. But if you want to use butter, make sure you measure the fresh butter in a measuring cup, packed, levelled up, and melted in the microwave. Then, measure again the melted butter for precision. The color of the biscuit is much yellower if using butter and whiter if using coconut oil.
  • Salt

How to make keto drop 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.

Making the Biscuit batter

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.

Almond flour Biscuit recipe

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 and cool

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.

Can I bake biscuits in a muffin pan?

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.

How to make cheddar 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.

Other delicious add-ons are:

  • Chives – add 2-3 tablespoons of finely chopped chives.
  • Garlic powder – add 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder into the batter for keto cheddar garlic biscuits.
  • Bacon crumbles – add 1/4 cupfuls of bacon crumbles in the batter.

What to eat with keto drop biscuits?

This keto drop biscuits are delicious breakfast biscuits with any sweet or savory toppings. The best combination are:

  • Peanut butter and keto jam – or almond butter for even fewer carbs
  • Butter – simply spread a dollop of pure grass-fed butter.
  • Sour cream – for a tangy spread, try sour cream with chives!
  • Sausage gravy
  • Leftover Thanksgiving turkey – cut the biscuit in half, add shredded leftover turkey and some cheddar cheese slices, and toast in the oven 3 -5 minutes to rewarm.
Easy Keto Biscuit recipe

How does it taste?

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.

Can I freeze these keto biscuits?

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.

Fluffy keto biscuits

Otherwise, store the low-carb biscuits in the fridge in a ziplock bag or sealed box for up to 3 days.

Dairy-free/nut-free swaps

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.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slightly oil the paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir almond flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside
  • In another bowl slightly beat egg white and egg.
  • Pour beaten eggs and melted coconut oil onto the bowl with almond flour mixture.
  • Combine until smooth. The batter will be runny and smooth that's normal.
  • Scoop the batter on the prepared baking sheet, 3 tablespoons make one biscuit. Wet your fingers to shape the batter into a round biscuit and smoothen/flatten lightly the surface.
  • Repeat until you form 10 biscuits, leaving 1 thumb space between each biscuit.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven, cool on a cooling rack at room temperature before serving

Serving ideas

  • Serve with butter or unsweetened whipped cream or sausage gravy.

Storage

  • Store the biscuit in a container or a ziplock bag for 3 days in the fridge. If they soften, cut in half and bring back to a toaster for crispiness
Coconut oil vs. butter: Coconut oil is my favorite option, the biscuits are much crispier on the outside. The color is much yellower if you use butter and the texture is slightly fluffier.

    I don’t have a question. I have been doing low carb for a couple of weeks not & am missing breads & sweets somewhat. I came across your recipe for the low carb biscuits so I made them this morning & was delighted that they were so delish! I look forward to trying more of your recipes. Thanks for sharing!
