Low Carb Garlic Cheddar Biscuits_4

First off, I wanted to say thanks for sticking around through my posting hiatus! Its been a busy summer, and we’ve been away for most of it with camping trips. If you follow me on Instagram, I’ve snapped a couple pics of our adventures this summer. While I regret not being consistent with posting new recipes, a little break is nice and the girls enjoy extra un-interuppted time with their mommy.  But, I’m happy to be getting back in my routine, and that means recipe testing and hopefully creating some new favorite recipes!

With summer being a little more indulgent than usual, I was inspired to make a low carb recipe that was easy and satisfying. These low carb garlic cheddar biscuits go great alongside any meal, and also make a great snack, and are very filling. My youngest gobbled them up too. They’re grain-free, as they’re made with almond meal (simply ground up raw almonds)

The hubby and I love a good biscuit and I do have a more traditional gluten-free biscuit recipe, Low Fat Cheddar Herb Biscuits, which are 14 g of carbs per biscuit. Whereas these are only 4 g carbs per biscuit.

While they aren’t the exact same texture as a traditional biscuit, they get a nice crust on the outside, and are a fairly light texture considering they’re made with almond meal.  I chose to use almond meal vs. blanched almond flour because I had a huge bag of almonds on hand and it was easy to grind them up with my Blendtec. Plus, its a much cheaper option than buying blanched almond flour. But, if you have the blanched almond flour on hand, it would work just as well I’m sure.

They have a light garlic and cheese flavor. As for the cheese, you are welcome to use more than suggested, but I didn’t want the fat grams to increase any more. You will get a stronger cheddar flavor if you use an aged cheddar, so that’s what I recommend using.

Nevertheless, these are a quick to make gluten-free and grain-free biscuit option that are perfect alongside soup, sandwiches or even in little lunchboxes!
