Who else does meal prep on Sundays? I can’t be the only one! And, low carb almond flour biscuits make a regular appearance in my prep.
More of you are looking at recipes here at Wholesome Yum on Sunday than any other day of the week. Clearly, many of you were crazy busy in the kitchen yesterday.
I have to say I totally agree with you – Sunday is the best day to cook for the week ahead. Since these paleo biscuits with almond flour have been in my weekly rotation for the past month, I couldn’t wait any longer to share them!
Sunday meal prep has become a comforting routine for me.
My family doesn’t usually have concrete plans in the morning that day, so I ask my daughter if she wants to cook with me. She squeals in delight every time! She loves sitting on the kitchen counter as I do my cooking. I let her turn over measuring cups into a bowl or stir using a big spoon. Cooking is so sweet with your kids!
As cliche as it sounds, it feels like she’s growing up too fast. The time we spend together in the kitchen is just priceless. It feels like moments frozen in time.
Plus, weekdays get so busy for many of us. Having some aspects of meals ready to go in advance is a huge time saver and makes for easy weeknight meals that are still healthy.
After I made these almond flour biscuits for the first time, I wished I’d done it sooner. Not only were they deliciously buttery and satisfying, but having them on hand all week was so convenient!
I brought them to work, served them with dinner, and even incorporated them into snacks. What would you use them for this week?
One of the Most Versatile Almond Flour Recipes
Almond flour biscuits are surprisingly easy to make. And this particular recipe is super versatile!
These keto biscuits come together with only 5 ingredients that you most likely already have on hand. Plus you can make them in less than half an hour and have them ready to eat with your next meal!
All you need to make these low carb biscuits with almond flour is:
- Almond flour
- Gluten-free baking powder
- Sea salt
- Sour cream – this is optional and you’ll want to skip it for the paleo version, but it improves the texture and makes them lighter.
(The amounts to use are on the recipe card below, but don’t miss my tips in the post first!)
If you want to make this into strictly paleo biscuits or need to be dairy-free, you can use coconut oil or ghee instead of the butter. You can’t swap out the almond flour for coconut flour, though, as it would be way too dry.
Variations for Low Carb Biscuits with Almond Flour
If you think of these paleo biscuits as a starting point, the sky is the limit. Really, you can get super creative with adding spices to the batter before baking.
Here are a few ideas:
- Add some rosemary and garlic to them for a nice savory roll to serve with a salad and filet mignon. Mmm.
- Add a sprinkle of parmesan and some Italian seasoning to this low carb biscuit recipe and serve them on the side with your keto chicken parmesan.
- Add in some smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and a bit of shredded cheddar to your almond flour biscuits to make the perfect accompaniment to an low carb salad.
- Want paleo biscuits for breakfast with your morning coffee? Top them with butter and drizzle a bit of low carb maple syrup on top. Soooo good!
These are all savory versions, but I’ll bet you can go sweet, too!
How To Make Almond Flour Biscuits
These almond flour biscuits are super easy to make. All you do is combine your dry ingredients and then add in your beaten egg and melted butter, stirring to mix well. That’s it!
Then, scoop the dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Pro tip: Use a large cookie scoop like this one for uniformly sized biscuits that will cook evenly.
So, so easy! It’s one of the reasons I keep making these low carb biscuits with almond flour again and again. The hardest part of the entire recipe is deciding if you want to make them plain or add some spices to them.
Well, that and waiting the 15 minutes for them to finish baking (there’s that patience part of the recipe coming in again!).
Tips For How To Make Keto Biscuits
Here are a few tips to get the best batch of keto low carb biscuits with almond flour possible:
Use finely ground, blanched almond flour
To get the best texture, you need to use the right almond flour. You’re not going to want to buy almond meal for this recipe, but instead a finely ground, blanched almond flour.
If you forget to pack that cookie scoop well, your dough will crumble as you release it onto the parchment paper. And then you’ll have crumbs instead of a perfect batch of savory paleo biscuits.
Give them room (doesn’t have to be much!)
Unlike those made with wheat flour, low carb biscuits with almond flour don’t spread or rise much. Because of that, an inch is totally enough space to leave between scoops of dough.
Ways To Use Low Carb Biscuits With Almond Flour
I actually have two ways of making these paleo almond flour biscuits. The ingredients and method are the same both ways, but I make them in two different shapes – biscuits as shown, and also a larger, flatter version.
The biscuit shape is perfect to have as a side with soup, salad, or any entree or side dish.
Or you can use the larger, flatter version of these almond flour biscuits as a bun or low carb bread. Just because you’re eating well doesn’t mean you have to give up burgers on buns or sandwiches on bread!
This gluten-free biscuit recipe is fabulous to use for buns when you get to craving a BLT or thick, juicy burger.
You may need to reduce the baking time by a couple of minutes for the flatter ones. Since they are not as thick, they cook a little faster.
How To Store Paleo Biscuits
You can make these low carb biscuits with almond flour ahead of time, if you’d like. They’ll keep for a few days on the counter, or up to a week in the fridge.
You can even make a bulk batch and freeze them if you’d like. Just take them out to thaw and reheat for use. You can warm them up in the microwave or oven right before serving.
The only question is, what are you going to use these paleo biscuits with first? A burger? A roll on the side of your favorite low carb soup? Or perhaps to make a breakfast sandwich?
