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!

Paleo Biscuits are so good you’ll want to add these to your Thanksgiving menu. Or your Christmas dinner menu. Or a spring brunch menu. As you can see, they’re quite versatile.

Here are some of my other paleo Thanksgiving recipes for you!

  1. Dear Elana, I love your recipes and wisdom, and have shared your website with so many!

    I have a request for clarification, please… When a recipe calls for coconut oil is the measurement in the solid or liquid form? Isn’t that important to know?! Forgive me if you’ve clarified this before, I can’t find it!

    Thanks so much for all you share. Wishing you radiant health and vitality

  2. These biscuits are also great for “day after” turkey sandwiches! I roll the dough into one giant square and cut into quarters for bigger biscuits that resemble bread. So good with Paleo mayo and cranberry sauce. Thank you!

  3. Hi Elana,
    What is the best way to keep these biscuits (and also the bran muffins, which I already know to say are amazing)? Planning to make both recipes on Sunday for the coming week’s breakfasts.
    Also, will it be onto substitute the coconut oil with olive or grape seed oil? It is so controversial with regards to consumption, that decided to keep it mostly for skin and hair use, and only if not possible to sub it, use it in baking.
    Thank you!

    • Lior, thanks for your comment! I let these biscuits cool on the counter overnight and then store them in the fridge. In terms of coconut oil, there is mounting consensus that it’s a very healthy food. Here’s a link discussing its positive impacts on health:


  4. These are amazing!! They did not rise too much, but oh, they are delicious!!! I used lakanto maple syrup to make them lower carb. Can’t wait to cook more from your site!!

  5. Mine did not rise at all. Perhaps it was the baking soda, which was a little old? They tasted very dry, and mine did not look like yours at all. I have been baking gluten free for awhile now, but I can’t think what happened. They are so fast and easy, and I wanted them to work so badly. Oh well. Thank you though!

  6. Followed the link to these this morning from your Paleo Thanksgiving menu, but I couldn’t wait until Thanksgiving to make them! Thankfully, I had all the ingredients on hand to bake them right away. They were so quick and easy to make, and best of all, delicious!

  7. Thank you so much for these! They are terrific ~ made mine smaller and froze the remaining ones. They make a great quick breakfast with eggs or late night snack with peanut butter. The touch of honey is the perfect amount, especially in my smaller biscuits.

  8. Hi Elana,

    I hope this message finds you well.

    I just made these biscuits this morning.

    We ate trying to find low sugar snacks or breakfast choices to satiate my 9 year old who has Autism.

    I think they turned out fantastic.

    Could they be made with baking powder? Or without baking soda and powder to have a crispier texture?

    Thank You for sharing.

    Take Care


  9. Hi, Elena ~
    I’m new to Keto, and just found your page. Yay !
    I live in Longmont, and I’m hoping that your recipes are high-altitude friendly since you’re next door in Boulder ~
    Thank you !

  10. Elana, have you ever made your biscuits using a nut flour blend? Or do you have a biscuit recipe that uses a nut flour blend? I have a some mixed that I’d like to use up, and have been craving something like these biscuits. Not wanting anything resembling a cookie… Thanks in advance!

    • Ali, thanks for your comment! I haven’t created any recipes using a nut flour blend cause I try to keep things as simple as possible with very few ingredients :-)
