There are a lot of baked goods in the world. There’s just something about homemade biscuits that make mornings feel extra cozy to me. This easy almond flour biscuits recipe is incredibly easy to make. Serve sweet or savory. They’ll be gone before you know it.
Or go classic with these keto biscuits. If toast is more your jam, then check out this simple, bakery-worthy keto bread.
I love a drop biscuit. All the flavor and decadence— with none of the fussy circles to cut. Sometimes I just don’t feel like it—and that’s where these biscuits come in.
All the ease of something you make from a can. But it tastes So. Much. Better.
Keep it simple by eating these as-is. Or with a spread of butter and jam. Get a shortcake effect with strawberries and whipped cream. Local honey anyone? Your favorite breakfast meat easily takes things in a savory direction. Or why not serve them with dinner?
Whip up this batter—and prepare for your new favorite biscuit to drop. Enjoy! – Linds x
Ingredient Notes + Substitutions
- Almond flour – using a fine-grained product makes all the difference here. Almond meal has a coarser texture and won’t give you flour-like results. Almond flour tends to clump, so I like sifting (even if you’re using a fine-grained product) before adding it in. Other gluten-free flours/grains are not a substitute, as each one has different baking characteristics.
- Baking powder – not baking soda!
- Sour cream – using full fat sour cream will give these biscuits a light, moist, and fluffy texture. It’s the perfect substitute for buttermilk in traditional biscuits, as it contains no carbohydrates. You can swap this with Greek yogurt, but the texture/flavor won’t be the same. Unfortunately, there’s no great dairy-free alternative here.
- Butter melted – be sure to grab unsalted so we can adjust the level of salt on our own.
- Cheddar cheese – feel free to substitute for any type of cheese you prefer.
- Bacon – skip for a vegetarian variation.
Your Own Variation…
Bacon, cheddar, and chives make our family’s favorite, but feel free to add what you love. Think…
- Different spices or herbs, like garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
- Different proteins, such as crumbled-up sausages (ala keto sausage balls) or tiny slices of ham.
- Different cheese. Something like pepper jack would totally change the flavor profile.
- How about sweet? Leave out the cheddar, chives, and bacon, and add a touch of your favorite sweetener. You can keep the net carbs low with keto sweeteners like erythritol or allulose.
How to Make Almond Flour Biscuits
- Whisk dry ingredients together.
- Combine the sour cream and eggs, then slowly whisk in the melted butter until completely smooth.
- Add the wet ingredients to the almond flour mixture, along with the bacon, cheese, and chives.
- Scoop the dough into a muffin tin pan (a baking sheet won’t work here, as the dough is too wet for this low carb biscuit recipe to keep its shape). Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top.
I love to use these as a side dish when serving a hearty dinner, but you can absolutely cover them in sausage gravy. They’re also a great grain-free bun substitute for sandwiches.
