This recipe is low carb, gluten free, and a Trim Healthy Mama S Fuel.
I have had this recipe ready for MONTHS! I keep using it in my own kitchen, but I have never posted it. I made them again this past week, along with sausage gravy, for breakfast, and I was blown away by how “normal” the biscuits and gravy tasted!
These biscuits are not flavored in any way, so they are perfect for under your low carb sausage gravy (recipe here)! They are also an S fuel for Trim Healthy Mamas, so that means you can slather them with BUTTER! Yes!
These will also make good breakfast sandwiches! Make up a batch at the beginning of the week and use them for an easy breakfast option! Fry an egg and a sausage patty, top with cheese, and you’re ready to go!
If you want to use them as an accompaniment to your dinner, I would add a bit of garlic powder and onion powder to spice them up a bit. While they are perfect for gravy or sandwiches, they need a little extra “oomph” if you are eating them on their own. (At least I think so.)
But let’s talk about texture – these biscuits are so soft and fluffy. They melt in your mouth! I love the texture! If you broil them for a moment or two at the end of baking, they get a nice brown crust on the outside, but remain soft and tender on the inside. Perfect!
I chose to use the Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend to lighten these up a bit. The Baking Blend lends to the light, fluffy, airy texture. I believe you could also use an equal mix of almond flour, coconut flour, and flax meal, but I have not personally tried that mix for this recipe. I believe it would yield a heavier, more dense biscuit instead of the light, fluffy texture.
These low carb biscuits even passed the taste test with my 8 year old daughter. (And that is saying something, because she is SUPER picky! And she loves bread.) Two of my dorm boys also ate them and declared them delicious! Score!
I am so excited to hear what you guys think of this recipe! I love how easy they are – just between you and me, I much prefer drop biscuits because I’m too lazy to roll out the dough! So these are perfect for me! They only take about 5 minutes to mix up, then bake them for 12! Fresh, hot biscuits in less than 20 minutes? Yes, please!

Low Carb Biscuits (THM-Friendly, Gluten Free)
- Preheat oven to 375.
- In a large bowl, mix Baking Blend, baking powder, and salt.
- Using a pastry cutter, cut in butter until you have a crumb-like mixture, and the butter pieces are about the size of peas.
- Add remaining ingredients and stir just until incorporated.
- Drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. (Or you can use a Silpat mat)
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until tops begin to turn golden brown. (I like to broil mine for the last minute or two to crisp the tops.)
