If you’ve been missing a certain biscuit at a certain seafood restaurant, it’s your lucky day! I’m here to deliver this keto cheddar bay biscuits recipe (a.k.a. cheesy keto biscuits)… and you’re going to love them. My keto cheddar biscuits are packed with cheesy, buttery flavor without all of the carbs that traditionally come along with them. And the best part is that these keto cheese biscuits are ready in 30 minutes and take just 8 ingredients to make. Easy, keto, low carb cheddar biscuits… what else do you need in life?!
These low carb cheese biscuits were inspired by my popular recipe for almond flour biscuits. Just a few added ingredients later, we have a cheesy version!
What Are Keto Cheddar Biscuits?
These are basically keto copycat Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits. You know the ones, right? They come out with your dinner and they are utterly irresistible. Buttery and cheesy… and full of refined flours!
So, I came up with this keto cheddar bay biscuit recipe, so that we can join in on the fun, too. And, I think it tastes just like the original version!
How To Make Keto Cheddar Bay Biscuits
This keto cheddar biscuit recipe is easier than you might think – they take just 10 minutes to prep!
Here’s how to make keto biscuits with cheddar:
- Mix together cheesy keto biscuits dry ingredients. Stir together almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, and sea salt.
- Add wet ingredients. Stir in the egg, heavy cream, and melted butter until dough is uniform. Fold in shredded cheese. The dough will be dense and a bit sticky.
- Scoop keto cheddar bay biscuits. Using a large cookie dough scoop, scoop the dough onto a lined baking sheet and form into a rounded biscuit shape.
TIP: You’ll want to flatten them a bit, but do leave some room for them to spread. And if you want them a bit rustic looking, don’t form a perfect disc.
- Bake keto cheddar biscuits until golden and semi firm. Let them cool for 10 minutes.
TIP: The biscuits will not fully firm up during baking. Letting them cool for a little while is critical for them to set and not fall apart. Don’t worry, they’ll still be warm.
- Brush with topping. Stir together butter, parsley, garlic powder, and sea salt. Brush over cheddar keto biscuits and serve.

Keto Cheddar Bay Biscuit Nutrition
The full nutrition stats can be found below the recipe card, but here are the highlights:
- 265 calories

TIP: These keto cheese biscuits are large, so if you want the calories and/or carbs decreased a bit, you can make them smaller. Just use a smaller scoop.
How To Store Cheesy Keto Biscuits
Since these low carb cheddar biscuits are made with cheese, it’s best to refrigerate them. They will last about 5 days in the fridge.
You can gently re-heat them in the microwave or oven until warm.
How To Freeze Low Carb Cheddar Biscuits
You can also freeze these cheesy keto biscuits. Let them cool completely, then store in a zip top freezer bag, removing as much air as possible. Store them in a flat layer until frozen solid.

I flatten this and use as my go to pizza crust recipe. So much crunchier and tastier than fathead dough.
That’s a great idea! I assume you pre-bake and then add toppings?
Sooooo, easy and so good. Everyone, including the none keto’s loved them. They requested them again this week. We love them.
Made these tonight and they are delicious. Very easy too.
These are delicious and easy to make. They are a bit crumbly at first but firm up when kept in the fridge.
Made this tonight to go with Keto seafood chowder. Easy to make and they turned out excellent!
