This easy Keto Biscuit recipe makes buttery, fluffy biscuits with only 3 grams of net carbs per serving.
Can You Have Biscuits On Keto?
No, you can’t have a regular biscuit recipe as a keto breakfast on a keto diet.
The traditional biscuit recipe is made with high-carb 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 these fluffy, buttery biscuits!
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.
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. Coarser 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!
- 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, pack, leveled 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.
Keto Drop Biscuits Batter
First, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) 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 it aside.
To make the biscuits, bring all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir or whisk to combine.
Next, add the melted butter and beaten eggs, and egg whites. Finally, stir with a spoon until a smooth, wet batter forms.
Spoon about three 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.
Baking And Cooling
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 so take the baking sheet out as soon as they reach the right color.
Cool the baked biscuits down on a cooling rack for 15-20 minutes.

Can I Make It Without Eggs?
No, these biscuits cannot be made with a flaxseed egg or with egg replacers.
How Do Keto Biscuits 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.
The Keto Biscuits can be stored for up to3 days in an air-tight container in the fridge.
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 them back to the oven at 210°F (100°C) 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 whites for the entire batch. Egg yolks are the main reason why keto baked goods smell or taste eggy and it won’t happen here.
