Cheesy Keto Biscuits

By Editorial Team
8 Comments

Most of us grew up with bread as a staple. And breads—or, more likely, rolls and biscuits—at the holidays took on a special significance. Maybe a certain person in the family always made the best kind. Perhaps it was a long-time family recipe. Whatever the case, passing the breadbasket at the holiday table holds meaning for us still, even when we’ve forgone grains for the sake of better health.

All this said, there are ways to enjoy these “traditional” foods when it means the most to us. These cheesy keto biscuits are one such recipe. Hint: make a double batch—because you’ll be competing with the non-keto eaters for these goodies.

Servings: 5 larger biscuits

Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter or ghee, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar or asiago cheese, shredded

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400ºF/204 ºC.

Whisk together eggs, butter, and salt.

In separate bowl, mix coconut flour with baking powder. Whisk dry ingredients into egg mixture. Stir in cheese.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

  1. I would really like to make these for Tnanksgiving, but your ingredients list does not mention xanthan gum or how much of the garlic and onion powders.
    Could you please email me back with those answers?

    1. The bees tell me that recipe was changed mid-process. (Recipe now corrected.) No need for xanthan gum or flavored powders. If you do choose to add garlic or onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon should do it.

  2. The ingredients list doesn’t include xanthin gum, garlic powder or onion powder.How much of these, please?

  3. Hi Mark,

    For clarification, the recipe makes 5 large biscuits. Is one serving =1 biscuit? If so, is the macro nutrient list for one biscuit? In other words, is each biscuit 444 calories, 5.6 carbs, 36 gms fat and 17 gms protein?

    Also, should I assume the Arrowroot is combined with the dry ingredients, because it’s not mentioned in the recipe making section.

    Thank you so much for your insights, inspiration and wonderful recipes! Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Carolyn, you’re correct on both counts. The nutritional info is for one biscuit. And the arrowroot powder is included with the dry ingredients. Have a great Thanksgiving. — M

  4. Is there any specific reason we add arrowroot powder? Is that the one that binds the ingredients?
