Keto Blueberry Biscuits
Now, if you’ve never had a sweet biscuit, you’re seriously in for a treat! They truly make the perfect breakfast treat! Especially these sugar-free blueberry biscuits.
They feature a biscuit that is mildly sweet, full of blueberries, and topped with a perfect lemon glaze to add just the right amount of tang and sweetness! Just typing that made me want to run to the kitchen to whip up another batch!
An added bonus, about these keto biscuits, is that they are bursting with antioxidant-packed blueberries. On a keto diet, we are limited in what fruits we can enjoy but in general, you can fit in a handful of berries as a treat.
That’s what’s great about using berries in keto baking you can enjoy a small amount of fruit that is already portion controlled for you!
And since blueberries pack a lot of flavor and nutrition, just a few blueberries go a long way in these sugar-free biscuits! This also means it’s a much healthier option than what a traditional sugar-laden sweet biscuit could ever be.
How To Make Keto Blueberry Biscuits
Like I said before, making these keto-friendly blueberry drop biscuits really is quick and easy! You’ll start by melting your butter and allowing it to cool a bit. Then you’ll combine your butter, eggs, and sugar substitute in a large bowl.
To this mixture, you’ll add sour cream, lemon extract, and lemon zest. In the same bowl, you’ll add all of your dry ingredients. Lastly, you’ll fold in your blueberries.
Then depending on the size of biscuits, you’ll be making you’ll use a spoon to “drop” the batter into large or small biscuits to your greased cast iron skillet or parchment-lined cookie sheet. This recipe will make 5 large biscuits that are considered 2 servings each or 10 small biscuits.
While the blueberry biscuits bake, you’ll make the sugar-free lemon glaze. The lemon glaze comes together very quickly by simply combining all the confectioner’s sugar substitute, lemon juice, lemon extract, and heavy cream in a small bowl.
I like to drizzle some on the glaze over the biscuits straight out of the oven to allow it to melt and seep into the biscuits for extra lemony sweetness and then drizzle the rest of the glaze once they are cooled. You can choose either way or both, it’s really up to your preference.

The Best Sugar-Substitute for Keto Blueberry Biscuits
When it comes to choosing which sugar substitute to use for these low-carb biscuits, I have several for you to choose from. My go-to choice is Lakanto Monk Fruit because the texture is spot on and there is barely any aftertaste.
It’s a monk fruit and erythritol blend. Monk fruit gets its sweetness from antioxidants called mogrosides, instead of fructose or sucrose. That’s why it’s such a great all-natural sugar substitute and has zero calories and zero glycemic impact.
I’m also partial to Swerve an erythritol blend. Unlike other natural sweeteners like stevia, it has no bitter aftertaste and measures just like sugar. It’s made from ingredients found in select fruits and starchy root vegetables and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives, or flavors.
Swerve is the name brand of Erythritol and it’s unlike other sugar alcohols because it has a 0 % impact on blood sugar. You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for most of my baked goods. But if using Pyure you will want to use 1/2 the amount called for in this recipe since it’s much sweeter. 1/4 cup is enough if using this sweetener.
Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success. You will want to use the Splenda that has a bulking agent. It’s the one that comes in larger bags.
I don’t recommend Splenda Bake because it’s actually half sugar half sucralose product and will be too high in carbs to be considered keto-friendly. Although Splenda is not an all-natural sugar substitute, in my opinion, it’s still better than real sugar.
I recommend it because not everyone has easy access to the more natural substitutes plus it is at a price point that most can afford. However, when it comes to the sugar-free icing for these blueberry biscuits you will have to use a confectioner’s sugar substitute. Both Lakanto and Swerve have great ones.
