Helpful Recipe Tip
- Do you have to use arrowroot starch/flour? No, but I recommend it. You can solely use the xanthan gum but the consistency will be different. I found mixing the two produced a better final result.
- Beef broth can be used but chicken broth will give the most authentic flavor. I prefer chicken bone broth because the collagen helps with thickening.
Fluffy & cheesy keto cheddar biscuits

- Form biscuits in hand with about a tablespoon and a half each biscut. That will give you 11-12 biscuits in the end

Helpful Recipe Tips
- Oven temperatures vary on your results. I have noticed 2 different desirable outcomes for each person.
- For golden biscuits, bake at 400F for 20 minutes and lightly brush with egg.
- For more authentic biscuits, bake at 350F for 20 minutes. This biscuit has the best texture but it's very light in color. For color it will produce a drier biscuit and the texture changes.
