At only 3g net carbs each these biscuits are the definition of healthy. Naturally gluten free, this almond flour biscuit recipe it’s low carb, paleo and keto as well. Buttery, with a soft, fluffy inside and a crunchy outside to add to your breakfast recipes. I worked to make these the best gluten free biscuits ever with a base of almond flour. They are similar to buttermilk biscuits with a slight salty flavor that pairs with breakfast or dinner. Sometimes, I stuff the biscuits with cheese or mix it in the batter. You can even make them southern style and make a sausage gravy with them. Mix them up in about 5 minutes then drop em’ onto the baking sheet and they’re ready in no time!

How To Make Almond Flour Biscuits

Ingredients Needed

  • Blanched Almond Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Tapioca Flour/Starch
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Eggs
  • Butter

Biscuit Dough & Cooking Instructions

  1. First, melt butter and preheat oven.
  2. Next, mix together blanched almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add eggs into cooled melted butter then mix.
  4. Combine dry and wet ingredients together. Biscuit batter will be on the thicker side. As mentioned, they are more drop style biscuits. So, you’ll be keeping your hands clean because you don’t have to shape these.
  5. At this point you can mix things in.
  6. Scoop biscuits onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You should get 8 biscuits on the small side. Or, 6 larger biscuits. Nutrition facts are based on making 8 biscuits.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Remove and allow to cool a bit, if you can. I love to bite into a fluffy, piping hot biscuit for some reason.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • These are drop biscuits. You don’t have to shape and form them such as my other biscuits.
  • Adjust salt levels if needed. These are naturally a bit salty. But, if you don’t want the extra salt make sure to use unsalted butter instead of the salted butter. You can even sub for coconut oil to make the biscuit recipe dairy-free.
  • Can you substitute coconut flour for almond flour? No! Please stick to the recipe. Never switch coconut flour for almond flour because they bake completely differently. Here is a video explaining why. Although, there is a small amount in the recipe it’s for texture purpose. Even if you add a little bit it can make the biscuits dense and hard, so follow instructions.

How To Store Leftovers

If you think you’ll have leftover biscuits be sure to separate the dough that way you can bake them fresh. Something like a storage container or freezer bags work just fine with biscuits. They will keep for several days in the refrigerator and a few months frozen.

Variations

  • Cheddar Bay Biscuits aka Red Lobster biscuits, these have cheddar cheese with the flavor of garlic powder topped with butter and parsley.
  • Keto Biscuits & gravy, this is a great option for southerners that love this very popular mix in the south. If you’re someone looking for a plain keto gravy this recipe will cover you as well.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I eat a biscuit on keto?

In this recipe you can! Normally biscuits contain some sort of flour containing gluten which would make the net carbs way too high for a single serving. Starting the keto diet you want to keep your carbohydrates around the 20g net carb range.

Is almond flour better than all purpose flour?

From a health standpoint yes*! All purpose flour is what we are use to but from a health point it isn’t the best thing to eat. For people with gluten intolerances this almond flour biscuit recipe can give them a great biscuit recipe without using gluten.

Can I use baking soda instead of baking powder?

For these biscuits I say stick with the baking powder. Simply because baking soda needs an acidic counter and the eggs wouldn’t be enough. I didn’t use anything like sour cream, vinegar or lemon juice for texture and taste purposes.

Would coconut flour work in the place of almond flour?

Never sub these two gluten free flours. Instead I created a recipe with coconut flour for you. They are very different but they use only coconut flour.

  1. I just started subbing keto recipes for health. Biscuits and gravy are my fav. I’m a country girl! I pulverized the almond flour more in my food processor because I tried a cake recipe and it was too grainy like cornmeal. They turned out awesome! The gravy was to salty. You mentioned adjusting it. I forgot. It is really an awesome substitute. Thanks so much.

  2. 5 stars
    I’ve been looking for recipes using almond flour. These biscuits were amazing! My family was so impressed with them. They were so easy to make. Thanks for the recipe, its a keeper!
