Keto Biscuits with Thyme and Cheese

Do you have 10 minutes to mix some almond flour, cheese, eggs, cream, butter, thyme and salt together in a bowl? That’s all you need to prep these savory low-carb, keto biscuits. Easy keto recipes are not difficult!

Crack one open after baking for 25 minutes and the top will be a crisp, golden brown while the inside is soft, warm and gooey.

Serve them on the side of any type of meal; they are filling enough to satisfy a bread craving.

These butter infused rolls look just like a traditional biscuits but won’t leave you feeling heavy and tired like high-carb four based foods do.

A great savory side for the holidays

Biscuits are a great recipe to share on Thanksgiving or any holiday. I really like using keto baked goods as “bridges” to introduce friends and family to our delicious keto foods. Selecting foods that are “too good to be true” (but really are!) is a fun strategy to surprise people and show them (in a nonthreatening way) the potential of healthy foods.

Low-Carb Flours

If you are following a ketogenic diet, you’ve said good-bye to wheat flours and gluten-free alternatives like oat flour and plantain flours. In this low-carb dietary path, almond flour, as showcased in this keto biscuit recipe, is going to be your new friend.

Between almond flour and coconut flour, you can make just about anything, from Low-Carb Pancakes, to All-Purpose Keto Bread, and Macadamia Nut Keto Coffee Cake. Each flour has it’s own specific and unique properties. Keto baking can be daunting for some people, but after a few practice recipes like Savory Broccoli Muffins and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, you’ll get a hang of it pretty quickly!

Almond and coconut flours are the two ingredients I use the most often when I make recipes from my Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking. They are the staples I keep stocked in our pantry all the time. I also like using ground chia and flax seeds as binding agents. They work wonderfully for Keto Flatbreads (who’s tried the Tuna Melt Quesadilla!?). On occasion I enjoy working with pumpkin seed meal or sesame seed meal.

This may come as a surprise, but there are a number of sweet and savory keto friendly baked goods that don’t even need flour. My Ketogenic Brownies are a great example of how to make delicious and (actually) fudgy brownies without any sort of flour!

Simple and Easy Keto Baking

With days full of homeschooling two wildlings, tending to our garden and growing collection of farm animals, writing cookbooks and running the Keto Collective, maximizing the nutrition in our meals while minimizing the time I spend in the kitchen is one of my top priorities.

I baked these super cheesy keto biscuits in the morning and ate them warm with breakfast. The children had them again later in the day stuffed with sandwich fixings and avocado. This was such a successful recipe, they happily nibbled the biscuits with a thick layer of grass-fed butter the following day too. These keto biscuits can be saved for a few days in the fridge. Keep them in an airtight container.

Like many of my ketogenic baked recipes, these keto biscuits do not call for any special ingredients or fancy equipment. I’m all about simple, staple recipes!

These biscuits are delicious with breakfast. They pair well with eggs and bacon, sausage and gravy, and some of your other favorite keto breakfast ideas.

      I haven’t tried it personally, I wonder if the mozz would be too soft…? If you make it let me know how they come out.

    Can you recommend an alternative to almond flour? It’s extortionate in the UK, I want to make my son these since he has been struggling with blood sugars and developed many food sensitivities (awaiting testing for diabetes and celiac disease) these sound like they’d do the trick regards feeling like he’s having a treat especially with grass fed butte. Many thanks ?
