Biscuits With Almond Flour

I love biscuits! But I’m on a low carb, gluten free diet so need something different than a standard biscuit made with a base of wheat flour.

That’s why I created my Biscuits with Almond Flour recipe.

Biscuits with Almond Flour

These biscuits are every bit as versatile as their gluten filled counterpart –and once they’re baked up, you can go sweet or savory.

Smother them in gravy, or make beautiful little strawberry shortcakes. Keep reading as I share those recipes below.

All you need to throw these together is almond flour, coconut oil, egg, honey, salt, and baking soda.

I’ve been serving these gluten free biscuits at our Thanksgiving dinner for years now and they’re a family favorite.

I love how quick this recipe is when I have many other dishes to fret over.

Usually, I make them a day or two ahead of time to save space in the oven on Thanksgiving day.

    • Terry, I leave them out to cool overnight, then place in a glass pyrex dish with the lid on and keep in the fridge for a couple of days :-)

  1. Have you ever tried the Kirkland brand almond flour? I’ve had some issues and I’m wondering if this is why. Thanks for all the amazing recipes!

  2. When I bake your amazing Biscuits they “melt” on the cookie sheet instead of staying “biscuit”shaped. Any suggestions? I follow the recipe step by step.

  3. Hi there Elana…I was wondering if u have any egg free recipes? I have a horrible digestive issues especially to eggs! I was wondering if I could use flax eggs in some of your baking recipes, especially your breads? Thank you!

  4. These biscuits are bound to become a staple in our home. The recipe is lovely for its simplicity. I can easily imagine making these with variations. The only substitution I made for our first go was to use butter. Delicious!
    Like some others, I didn’t roll the dough. Using an old ice scooper, I scooped mounds onto the baking sheet, then used the side of a knife to flatten them slightly.
    Thank you!

    • Amy, thanks for appreciating the simplicity of this recipe. My goal for all of the recipes here and in my three cookbooks is 1) delicious 2) simple 3) healthy and I won’t share/publish a recipe unless it meets those criteria :-)

  5. These are sooo good. I added bacon bits to the first batch. Yum!!! Just made some with bacon and chives. DE-LISH! Great recipe for morning biscuits too… eggs on top of halves, eggs benedict, etc. They’re also great with soup.
