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. Being on Paleo, I seem to make a lot of recipes that call for coconut oil. While I love coconut, I am feeling a little “overloaded” with coconut flavor. I use unrefined coconut oil. Would switching to refined coconut oil diminish the flavor of coconut providing a more “neutral” taste? Are there any negatives to using the refined version? Love, love, love these biscuits! Thanks for all you do!

  2. I am very allergic to stevia. What can I use as a substitute for the stevia in your recipes? Is it just enough to use natural vanilla or do I need to add additional sweetener of some kind?

    • Susan, I haven’t tried making my recipes without stevia so not sure. Feel free to experiment and let us know what works :-)

  3. Hi,

    I noticed in one of the comments that Bob’s almond flour does not work well in this recipe because it is coarser. Bob’s is what I have on hand. Would it help to sift the flour before measuring?

    Thank you!

  4. New to your fabulous website. The biscuits were so easy to make, thank you for that. Although they don’t appear to have risen as high as the picture shows, the texture was amazing. I added 2 Tablespoons of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor. The honey I reduced to 1 teaspoon. Perfect!!

  5. Hi! I absolutely love these biscuits. We don’t eat wheat in our household, and I’ve tried a few other recipes, these are my favorite. So simple and delicious. Thanks!

  6. I’ve made these a few times with the straight recipe and love them. Tonight, I decided to change it up a little. I added in the Everything Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joes – a little inside and then put it on top before baking. They turned out great, so I had to pass on the tip!

  7. Can you make and freeze these? It would be nice to make a big batch and defrost as needed. They were so delicious!

    • Hi Carmen, I haven’t tried that so not sure, if you do please let us know how it goes! I’m so glad the biscuits were delicious :-)

  8. Hi Elana! Thank you for this delicious recipe! Do you melt the coconut oil or just leave it at room temperature? Unfortunately, my biscuits didn’t rise and I’m wondering if it’s because of the melted coconut oil.

      • Thank you so much for your reply Elana! I did use the Honeyville brand (I bought it for the your Paleo 2.0 Bread). I replaced the celtic sea salt with himalayan salt and omitted the honey. Maybe those two changes caused the biscuits to fall flat? Either way they tasted great….just more of cookie consistency my first time making them. :)

        • Rita, unfortunately when you start changing the recipe you also start changing the results. If you use the honey called for in this recipe the biscuits will be perfect :-)

  9. Hi Elana! I absolutely love your page! Whenever I need a good recipe, your website is the first thing I go to. However, I have a good friend who has a nut allergy – do you have a biscuit recipe that uses coconut flour or another non-nut flour? Thank you!
