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.

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

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared these Biscuits with Almond Flour in 2010.
These are the first recipe I’ve ever made with almond flour. Even though I didn’t stick to you recipe because I didn’t gave some of the ingredients they turned out wonderful so thank you for the recipe! I made half a batch. Used egg whites, avacado oil, and xylitol but used all your ratios. They were so delicious. Oh and they were wetter than real biscuits so I just made drop biscuits. They were beautiful and tasty!
Tacy, thanks for letting me know these turned out beautiful and tasty!
These are very good. Made them to serve for Easter dinner. Sub canola oil for coconut oil. Perfect. Thanks Elana.
Any idea if avocado oil would substitute okay for coconut oil?
Donna, I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
