Default Low Carb Biscuits

I can't say for sure how they turn out. I just now came across this recipe. I'm going to try them though. 2 net carbs per biscuit isn't so bad. There does seem that there would be a lot of calories though with the butter, cheese, sour cream; however, you could use lower calorie/fat versions of those things.

Low Carb Biscuits
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray. (These spread out too much and puff up too little on a cookie sheet. Use a pan with 12 wells.) Mix all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and combine thoroughly. Drop about 2 heaping tablespoons in each well. Bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.

NET carbs 2 per biscuit
