    Using a cheese grater, grate frozen butter into the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir to distribute, but don't mix too much. You want the butter to be in lumps. The more the butter is still intack and not soft or melted, the flakier the biscuit will be.

Low Carb Easy Biscuit Recipe

If you are looking for delicious keto bread to serve with your low carb dinners, or a flaky biscuits to pour a creamy sausage gravy on top, then you have found the right recipe! 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.

These low carb biscuits are amazing hot out of the oven with sausage gravy poured on top. They make the best keto biscuits and gravy. Since they are so tender when they are warm, all the creamy gravy can devour every nook and cranny of the fluffy biscuit. If desire a biscuit that you hold with your hand and use to scoop up sauces and dunk into chili or soup, let these biscuits cool overnight. As they sit they will firm up and be easier to handle like a dinner roll.

Buttery Keto Biscuits

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 incorportating 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. First it is used to retain moisture and helps the biscuits from becoming too crumbling as they cool. Second 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.
