Expert Tips for Baking the Best Keto Biscuits

  • Don’t Overmix: While overmixing won’t make these biscuits tough like traditional ones, it can deflate the batter and lead to denser results. Mix only until the ingredients are just combined.
  • Watch Baking Time: Keep a close eye on the biscuits as they bake. They will continue to cook as they cool, so remove them from the oven when the edges are lightly browned and the tops are golden. See images.
  • Embrace Imperfection: These are drop biscuits, not rolled and cut, so don’t worry if they aren’t perfectly shaped. Their rustic appearance adds to their charm.

Flavor Variations

  • Garlic & Herbs: For extra flavor, consider adding a pinch of garlic powder or your favorite herbs to the dough.
  • Ham & Cheese: Fold in 1/2 cup of finely chopped ham and chopped chives for a savory twist.
  • Cheeses: Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese to create your own unique flavor combinations.

    Made these today- wow, delish! Used whole milk Greek yogurt for the sour cream & added a tiny pinch of monkfruit sweetener because I felt like my batter was salty. Cut volume of cheese a little. Perfect! Thank you!

    Going to make these today to have with a Keto Chili Cheese Hot Dog casserole. I plan on adding a teaspoon of cornbread flavoring to sort of make it a cornbread/cheesy recipe to go with the chili.

  3. These are awesome and I’ll definitly make them again! I didn’t have sour cream so I used 1/2 cup of heavy cream with a splash of vinegar. I also added a little garlic powder. Reminded me so much of cheddar bay biscuits.

  4. Just a question. The recipe card shows 1/4 cup melted butter, but the video shows 1/2 cup. Was wondering which is correct?

    I have these in the oven now. They smell GREAT!!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  5. So yummy and quick to make. I didn’t have any sour cream so used yoghurt and they turned out beautiful!

  6. 5 stars
    These are GREAT! It’s like having an actual bun! For my second batch I added a bit of garlic powder, soooo yummy! So glad I found this recipe!

    These are amazing. 3rd time making them and they turn out great. Such a nice treat, I put my poached egg on them and don’t feel like I have missed anything. Thanks for the great recipe.

    The biscuits came great. I used your idea to use the yeast and inulin and added cooked tinny pieces of bacon. I don’t know how they come without the yeast addition but I will make these often. They will make a good quick breakfast when I’m on the run.
    Thank you so much for your recipes!

    I made these today but I didn’t have a muffin tin so I made it in a square pan and cooked it for about 25-30 minutes instead. It was/is delicious, extremely cheesy and light. I have ordered a Square muffin tin online so am going too use that next time. Can’t wait to make them again

  10. These were delicious and satisfied that bread feeling we have been missing. Better than that, they were kid approved! Thank you for sharing.

    THANK YOU!!! This was our 3rd try at some type of keto bread. It is DELICIOUS!! My husband started his keto recently and bread has been greatly missed. This recipe makes me want to cry because we have something now that can fill that void. It is so good my teens are stealing them! Ha!!!
