MORE KETO & LOW CARB BREAD RECIPES
Are buttermilk biscuits keto?
Those of us that have been living la vida low carb for a while know that traditional buttermilk biscuits are a huge no-no.
Wheat flour, some have sugar or honey, etc all add a ton of carbs and make them completely off-limits to us.
To be honest, I had pushed biscuits to the back of my mind and just stopped thinking about them until my husband, who is NOT keto, told me that he really really wanted my biscuits and sausage gravy.
When we first got together I would make biscuits and gravy for breakfast on the weekends. The entire family loved them.
To be honest, a lot of the time I cheated and just used Bisquik and made drop biscuits.
Your girl is all about quick and easy my friends!
The whole family loved it.
But it had been at least 3 years, or longer since he had gotten his biscuits and gravy fix.
I told him that I would start testing some keto buttermilk biscuit recipes and I got the "look".
You know, that wrinkled nose totally skeptical of the whole idea, kind of look?
But by the time I was done, he was 100% a total believer in this recipe and now he requests these keto buttermilk biscuits ALL of the time!

HOW TO MAKE KETO BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
Please see the recipe card below for the complete recipe, including measurements and cooking time!
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place a silicone baking mat or a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Stir the vinegar into the heavy whipping cream and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking powder.
Add the eggs, heavy whipping cream, and butter to the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
Using a large cookie scoop (or ice cream scoop) spray the scoop with olive or coconut oil. Scoop the dough into 8 biscuits onto the baking sheet.
Cook for about 12 to 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and spring back a bit when touched.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet.
These biscuits are fragile so I don't recommend trying to cut them in half. Just top them with butter and sugar-free jam, gravy, etc.
FAQS ABOUT KETO BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
Are these keto buttermilk biscuits fluffy like regular buttermilk biscuits?
No, these biscuits are more of a drop biscuit texture. They remind me of the old Bisquik biscuits I grew up on.
How do I know if my biscuits are cooked fully?
It should take between 12 and 15 minutes for your keto buttermilk biscuits to fully cook. Once they start to get golden brown with a darker brown at the edges (like the photos) they should be done.
You can also cut one of the biscuits in half to check the center if you want to make totally sure.
Can I freeze these keto buttermilk biscuits?
Absolutely you can! Freeze the biscuits in a single layer on a baking sheet and then pop them into a ziplock freezer bag or airtight container. Take the biscuits out of the freezer and place them in the refrigerator overnight to thaw.
Last thoughts about this recipe
It always makes me happy when I can create a keto recipe that so closely resembles its non-keto inspiration that non-keto people request the keto recipe.
This is one of those recipes!
My family, and the neighbors, all love these biscuits and I have heard, on more than one occasion, that they taste just like Bisquik drop biscuits!
Between getting the flavor and texture correct, and getting those carbs down as low as possible, this is one of my 100% success story recipes.
Traditional buttermilk biscuits can have 16 net carbs in them!
These keto buttermilk biscuits have just 3.....yes, 3 net carbs!
SO there is nothing stopping your from enjoying some biscuits for breakfast this weekend!
