It all started with sausage gravy
Recently, I was discussing some possible weekend breakfasts with the husband. You know, the ones that take a little more effort and result in more than scrambled eggs.
One recipe that we both missed was a delicious plate of biscuits and gravy.
The gravy part seemed pretty doable. All we had to do was just reduce heavy whipping cream with sage sausage and spices and ta-da — we have sausage gravy!
The biscuits however, threw us through a loop.
A lot of the lower carb biscuits out there are lacking in flavor still typically contain wheat flour. Since wheat is simply not an option for me at this point, I developed a healthier version to suit my needs.
What do they taste like?
Quite honestly, these biscuits are delicious on their own. They’re dense and flavorful from the cheddar cheese, with just a pinch of sweetness from the coconut.
They remind me of the famous Red Lobster biscuits with a slightly denser texture.
Another great feature is that they are extremely filling, even for two grown men like us.
As the recipe states, these Keto cheddar biscuits will become even more dense if they are left out for a couple of hours.
Why coconut flour?
Coconut flour adds great structure to low carb baked goods, much like traditional flour.
Since we are using a small amount of coconut flour, there is very little actual coconut flavor in the dish. It also helps that we have some strange flavors like garlic powder, sharp cheddar cheese and green onion.
If you have an allergy to coconut, almond or lupin flour may also work. You will likely need to add more liquid ingredients if you go this route.
Try these recipes with biscuits
Aside from being a great a base for sausage gravy, these biscuits also work well for an egg and sausage sandwich. Or if you’re like me, just slather them up in butter, sour cream or cream cheese.
I bet they would also work perfectly for Eggs Benedict with a delicious hollandaise sauce.
Serve up my cheesy Keto biscuits recipe alongside some of these classics:
Better than Red Lobster
These cheddar biscuits have even won over the hearts of my non-Keto friends.
As I mentioned earlier, a few have even claimed they are better than Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay biscuits!
Do they freeze?
I would assume these would freeze well, but honestly, they never last long enough to attempt.

Toasting your biscuits
If you’d like to toast your biscuits before serving, it is recommend to do so in a pan or toaster oven until golden brown. An air fryer will also work well.
Avoid using a traditional toaster as they can sometimes crumble and get stuck.
