Biscuits……cut, drop, buttery, flaky, moist, crispy. So many different types of biscuits. When I was a kid my Mom would make drop biscuits from the famous “Bisquik”.
Those little mounds of bread-like-crumbly-goodness were almost always covered in sausage gravy. Biscuits and gravy was another weekend favorite at our house! I have come to realize that it is definitely an American thing😊 My friend from the UK had never heard of it before! Who would have thought🤔
So yesterday was my husbands birthday and every year I make him lots of goodies from breakfast all the way to dinner! Of course, breakfast was biscuits and gravy! Since he is NOT following a gluten free, keto eating style I made him scratch biscuits with wheat flour. I couldn’t miss out on the yumminess so I made a 2nd batch of biscuits for me!
Now I have tried countless recipes for gluten free, keto, paleo biscuits, but they were mostly ok. Nothing too wonderful to share and shout out to everyone about ……..until now!!
Only 5 ingredients and 10-12 minutes later you will be enjoying some melt-in-your-mouth-goodness that you will be telling everyone about😊
5 INGREDIENT KETO BISCUITS
1 cup + 2 Tbsp COLD Blanched, Almond Flour (place in fridge 20 min if not cold)
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp of salt
2 Tbsp COLD,HARD, Salted butter
3 Egg Whites from 3 LARGE Eggs
First you will need 1 cup + 2 Tbsp COLD Almond Flour, 2 Tbsp COLD butter.
Add in 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking powder.
Begin cutting in the butter, pastry cutter works best here. It should have a medium crumb consistency. You want little pea size bits of butter.
Now you will need egg whites from 3 LARGE Eggs. Its important they be large so your amounts are not off. Whisk whites well until frothy.
Cut/stir in egg whites to the dry mix with a KNIFE. It sounds strange, but it helps to keep them light textured.
I used a cookie scoop to place on my lined cookie sheet. It is approx. 2 Tbsp of batter per biscuit if you don’t have a scoop.
Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 400F oven until golden brown.
Yummy biscuit goodness waiting to be devoured!! These are great warmed up if you have left overs.
Makes approx. 6 biscuits. @ 1g carb each.
Tell me your memory of biscuits!
