How do you make Keto Cheddar Garlic Biscuits?
I tried this recipe 4 times before I got it just right, I highly recommend watching the video to see exactly what the dough should look like. This recipe starts with a cream cheese, cheddar and egg base. This provides tons of fat and moisture to create the perfect biscuits. Next we add almond flour, baking powder, salt, butter and cream. This is an almond flour only recipe so if you aren’t a coconut flour fan, you are in luck.
The mixture will be pretty thick, you might think you need to add more moisture, but don’t! When the cream cheese and cheddar melt it adds just what the batter needs. After you’ve mixed the batter allow it to chill in the fridge for 10 minutes (otherwise they will spread out too much as they bake). Then use a small cookie or ice cream scoop to scoop them out onto a greased or lined baking sheet. Lightly press the dough down to flatten it slightly.
Pop those babies in the oven and allow them to bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Meanwhile, melt butter add garlic powder and parsley or Italian seasoning (your flavor preference)
How many net carbs are in Keto Cheddar Garlic Biscuits?
According to Red Lobster’s website one Cheddar Bay Biscuit has 16 carbs. This easy keto version has just 2 net carbs and it is naturally gluten free. This recipe makes 22 small biscuits or 11 large biscuits. I think these are perfect as written with the garlic butter spread on top. But if you want more of a breakfast style biscuit to make sausage biscuit or bacon and egg sliders just skip the garlic and parsley and it makes a great cheesy keto biscuit.
How do you store Keto Biscuits?
After baking store these biscuits in the fridge. Since the recipe does make 22 I like to freeze about half of my batch for quick sandwiches or a side dish. They freeze beautifully, so just store in an air tight freezer bag and reheat in 20 second increments until warm.
- 3 ounces cream cheese, SOFTENED
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup heavy cream (scrape the measuring cup out since it is thick, make sure you get ALL of the liquid)
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or parsley
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl combine the softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese and eggs. Stir until cream cheese is smooth with no clumps.
- Add almond flour, baking powder, salt, heavy cream and melted butter.
- Stir until combined. Do not overmix or biscuits will be tough.
- Chill the dough 10-15 minutes.
- Using a small cookie or ice cream scoop spoon the biscuits out onto a greased or lined baking sheet.
- Lightly press the dough down.
- Bake 13-15 minutes until golden.
- Meanwhile combine the topping: melted butter, garlic powder and Italian seasonings or parsley.
- Brush onto biscuits.
Tips and tricks:
You can use unsweetened almond milk instead of cream if you want, but the fat content decreases.
The dough will be thick, be careful not to overmix, watch the video to see exactly how it should look.
If you want regular cheesy biscuits just leave off the garlic powder and seasoning in the butter topping. These biscuits are great for breakfast or sliders.
I use a SMALL cookie/ice cream scoop to get 22 biscuits. If you want to use a large/full size scoop you will get approximately 11 biscuits with about 4 net carbs each. The baking time is 16-18 minutes for the large biscuits.
