Paleo Biscuits

Paleo Biscuits are a turkey day fave made with 6 healthy ingredients. All you need to throw these together is a few minutes, some almond flour, coconut oil, egg, honey, salt, and baking soda. With so few ingredients, this recipe is far easier to make than the real thing!

I had so many requests from you guys asking me to make a gluten-free biscuit recipe, that I decided it would be great to share this one with you. I’ve been serving these at our Thanksgiving dinner for years now and it’s a family favorite.

We like Paleo Biscuits so much though that we make this easy recipe all year long. If you smother these biscuits in my Coconut Cream and top them with fresh strawberries, they make an amazing strawberry shortcake!

Your website has changed my life! And my husband’s too. I had to write in after I made these delicious biscuits. I ate them topped with lox and a poached egg. So good!

  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.
