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.

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.

  1. Hi Elana,
    I made the paleo biscuits with the almond flour. They were absolutely delicious but they did not rise! They were more like cookies but we actually loved them! Did I do something wrong?
    I did put in the baking soda.
    Thanks-we will try again. Judith

  2. I’ve been making these delicious biscuits of Elana’s for years, but, recently, discovered my son has an egg allergy. I used the gelatin “egg” directions from The Curious Coconut’s blog for a suitable egg substitute and these lovelies turned out just as amazing, especially covered in strawberries and whipped coconut cream. I know there are always questions about substitutions so I wanted to let everyone know who also can’t have eggs that you can still make these yummy biscuits!

  3. I made these tonight and they were scrumptious. I had added a bit more honey and they turned out a bit sweeter than a biscuit. I’m thinking I could add a little almond butter to them to actually make a nut butter cookie as I don’t like super sweet cookies. I will make these again, thanks!

  4. I made these alone two other recipes for the first bakes off this site
    They are very nice
    I think I made them a bit too thin
    They are stored in a tin but were quite soft the next day
    Any special way I should store them?
    Thank you

  5. I have made these biscuits a number of times. They are wonderful! Today, I used them as a basis for strawberry shortcake! So wonderful! Thank you Elana for recipes that are simple and beautiful!

  6. I rolled out the dough with a rolling pin & cut out 6 with the mouth of a pint glass because it was the smallest I had. I rolled the last bit of dough by hand into a ball. I prefer the size of the hand rolled biscuit over using the rolling pin. Next time, I’ll skip the rolling pin altogether. They are delicious!

  7. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe. I used melted ghee instead of coconut oil and it worked great. What is the best way to store the leftover biscuits?
