Keto Cheddar Bay Biscuits

This keto cheese biscuits recipe is made with almond flour, cheddar cheese, and sour cream. 

And they are so yummy, that even your non-keto family and friends won’t be the wiser.

I slather these biscuits with melted garlic butter immediately after they are baked for the most amazing cheesy keto biscuits. It’s that garlic butter that makes them taste like Red Lobster’s biscuits. So don’t skip brushing them with butter. 

Look I know there are plenty of delicious keto-friendly biscuit recipes out there, but it was time I created one of my own.

And after you give this recipe a try, I am confident you’re going to be thrilled I did. If there was one thing that I prided myself on when I used to make regular homemade biscuits, it was that they were always nice and light.

After all, who want’s to have a hockey puck for a biscuit?

Well, not this girl! Unfortunately, I’ve had my fair share of regular biscuits, and frankly, they were not always great. But that’s not the case with these cheesy keto biscuits.

Cheesy Keto Biscuits

Do you know that years ago my love for traditional biscuits even caused a minor ruckus? It was back when my husband and I were youth pastors, let’s just say I wasn’t proud of the way I behaved.

You see it was on our way to a missions trip that I kinda had a meltdown all because the restaurant had run out of biscuits. Yeah, that stunt of mine gave the youth group a great laugh and some of them still talk about it today.

Can I tell you that I was seriously upset that they had no more biscuits for this girl? Oh, how times have changed. Today, you couldn’t pay me to eat a regular biscuit.

Well, I declare that these easy keto cheddar biscuits will have you never eating a regular high carb biscuit again.

It may even cause a little fuss in your home, as you find yourself fighting for the last low-carb biscuit. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

That’s right this recipe will help you stay committed to the keto diet and be a delicious breeze.

What To Serve Keto Cheese Biscuits With

You may be wondering what to serve these cheesy keto biscuits with. Well, although these biscuits are so good they can stand all by themselves. 

They would also fit nicely with any low-carb meal. And since these have a garlicky butter flavor why not consider making them with my Keto Lasagna Recipe?

Of course, they would also pair well with my easy keto chili. My bold chili is a favorite with my family and friends.

Hi Dayna, Enjoy in good health Darling!

I can’t get past the bitter after taste ? My first try and they turned out beautifully but that after taste isn’t pleasant. I think it’s the baking powder possibly. Wondering if there’s something that would help that. I’m going to try buttermilk next time instead of the sour cream. See if there’s a difference. Thank you !

Hi Ron, there should not be a bitter aftertaste. My guess is that it could be the baking powder may have expired on you. It can happen even if the date says otherwise depending on where you store yours.

Love these biscuits I have some in the oven right now and have made them before and I truly love them. I gave some to a friend and she loved them she had never had almond flour before. Thank you for the great recipe

These biscuits are amazing Thanks for the clear directions! I subbed 1/2 cup of oat fiber for some of the almond flour, and added extra 1/4 c greek yogurt (no sour cream) and doubled the cheddar. Mixed the grated cheddar cheese to the dry mix and stirred thoroughly before adding wet ingredients. They spread out a little while baking, but were still delicious and a little crunchy just on the outside I will make these often and can’t wait until my Army son comes home..he enjoys RL biscuits so want to try them out on him
