Fluffy Low carb Cheese Biscuits

 

This feather-light and fluffy biscuit has become our favorite overnight. I came across the recipe on Reddit and would like to credit the author but I couldn’t find it again. We fell in love with it the first time I made it. The texture was very moist and a tad dense due to almond flour.

I made a few tweaks, substituting par to f almond flour with coconut flour and add dried herbs. The mixture is wet like drop biscuit.

Here I used a silicon muffin tray for convenience’s sake. You can spoon it onto the baking tray for a rustic look.

I couldn’t be any happier with the result. It tastes better than traditional biscuits, if I do say so myself. See it for yourself and give this one a try and you won’t regret it.

This is savory biscuit but can be adapted to be sweet by leaving out herbs and cheese and add sweetener of your choice. We will be posting recipe for it soon.
