These keto biscuits are tender and flaky. They are made with layers of butter and dough that help it to rise up creating a flaky, crumbly center. Keto biscuits have a buttery flavor are made with the right combination of low carb flours, cream and sour cream to cut out any of the grainy texture.

    grated butter with cheese grater

    To the flaky, fluffy biscuits, the secret is to use butter that is as cold as you can get it. I like to freeze mine for 30 minutes before using it. Ideally, you want to keep the butter in cold small chunks when making your biscuit dough.

    You don’t want the butter to get soft or melt or else your low carb biscuits may not be so big and flaky.

    My favorite method for incorporating the butter into the dry ingredients it to use a cheese grater to shred the butter. This creates the perfect size for biscuits and it’s easier than cubing the butter and cutting it into the dough.

    If you don’t have a cheese grater, you could cut the butter into small cubes and cut it into the dough using a fork or a pastry cutter; however, the more you manipulate the butter, the faster it will soften. This is why a cheese grater works best.

    Psyllium husk powder

    The psyllium husk in this recipe serves two purposes.

    1. It is used to retain moisture and helps the biscuits from becoming too crumbling as they cool.
    2. It also creates bulk in dough when using it for keto baking.

    My favorite psyllium husk is by NOW Supplements. Make sure you are using the whole psyllium husk and not the powder in this recipe.

    Eggless keto biscuits

    If you are sensitive or allergic to eggs, this low carb biscuit recipe is for you!

    Many keto recipes rely on eggs to help dough or batter rise during baking. This often results in the baked good having an eggy taste since so many eggs have to be used in order to get similar results as breads containing gluten.

    This biscuit recipe uses baking powder, baking soda, and the acid from sour cream to help it rise. Sour cream is acidic and will activate the baking powder and baking soda while they are baking to release carbon dioxide bubbles which help fluff up the bread.
