Almond Flour Biscuits ~ Low Carb • Grain Free

Looking for a sturdy wheat free biscuit to hold up some yummy sugar free pumpkin butter or maybe some sausage gravy?   Not exactly like grandma made, but close to it for sure.  And so tasty, you’ll almost feel guilty.


Almond Flour Biscuits ~ Low Carb • Wheat Free • Grain Free

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of almond flour
1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
½ tsp sea salt
2 tablespoons cold salted butter
egg whites from 3 large eggs

Preheat oven to 400º F.

Mix almond flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium size bowl. Add cold butter and using a pastry cutter, mix until crumbly.


Next, in a small bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork until they are slightly frothy, about 30 seconds. Blend the eggs in with the almond flour mixture until combined.  Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to allow the bits of butter to harden.

Divide the biscuit mixture into 4-6 portions and spoon on to a parchment lined baking sheet or into a well-greased muffin top pan. Bake right away for 10 -12 minutes.  Remove when golden brown.  Makes 4-6 biscuits.


Serve with butter and preserves or top the biscuits with your favorite sausage gravy.

  1. These look delicious…I love a good biscuit! I must say for us Southern girls that have problems with gluten and grains, it’s a must to have a good biscuit recipe around!

  2. Can you use the whole egg or is it too heavy?

    • I’ve not tried it with the whole egg. That might be something I try next time. Yesterday I subbed some cream for one of the egg whites and that worked great! 🙂

  4. What is aluminum free baking powder? I have never heard of this.
    I am so glad to see a biscuit recipe.

    • I found mine at Kroger right by the other baking powder. It is the RUMFORD brand and is in a red can. It is also non-GMO and gluten free.

  7. Wow I just made these!! They are wonderful! Thank you so much for this recipe.

  8. hi! are your nutrtion facts for four biscuits or six?

  9. These were fantastic! I used liquid egg whites (3 Tbl = 1 lg. egg white) to equal 2 egg whites and 3 Tbl heavy cream in place of the 3rd egg white. Made six in a muffin top pan, but a single recipe produced then biscuits in that number, so next time I will double the ingredients and make six larger biscuits. Thanks for a great recipe!

  10. I made this as the crust for my quiche. It turned out really good. The only thing I had to do was add a little extra almond flour because the mixture was a little too wet at first. My one year old daughter loved it! The recipe is a really good starter recipe to do different things with. You could make it sweet or savory.

    • sounds amazing! I do prefer a crust with my quiche or egg tart. I’ve been thinking about this so I’m glad you let me know how it worked for you! Thanks so much!

  11. will these mess up the recipie if I use almond meal instead of almond flour?

  12. Tried these today….1 egg white, 1 whole egg, 3 tbsp buttermilk….turned out great!

  13. These are pretty good, they do spread slightly so they become a little thin when you slice them. The texture however is nice. One note is that they are VERY salty. I would cut the salt in half next time I make these.

  14. These are perfect! Thank you!

  15. Mommy who loves to cook low carb

    Am I at Cracker Barrel?!?! These are amazing!

  16. Hi!! I just made these. They are quite small and didnt spread. Do yours spread much? They smell yummy! 😀

  17. Curious? How do you get 13 grams of fat?
    Is a serving 1 biscuit?

    • I put the recipe in My Fitness Pal and it figured the nutritional info. I’m sure I ate 2 biscuits. 😀 The nutritional info is for 1 biscuit if you make 6 total biscuits. (depends on the size)

    Turned out amazing ! I used ghee instead of butter! Worked perfectly!

    • That is awesome to know! Did you make your own ghee? I’ve been wanting to try that, but I have a wedding I’m preparing for so I’m too busy to test any recipes right now. Other than wedding cakes! lol
