Key ingredients

    Ingredient substitution

    I told ya! The dish is super-convenient for the busy and the foodie. A little creativity and you could create ten variations of this keto biscuit recipe. For example, if you want, you could sub the cheddar cheese and cream cheese for other varieties. Think Swiss cheese or pepper Jack cheese!

    You can also swap coconut flour for almond flour, only use 4-times the amount to ensure great texture and taste. Although, this hasn’t been tested, you can try using 1 1/3 cup of almond flour in place of coconut flour in this recipe.

    What about the flavor? If you like your food to be an ear-steamer, you could add different spices to the keto sausage biscuits. The best spicy version would have red peppers and cayenne peppers. Make it more toothsome with a pinch of Italian seasoning.

    Or why not turn these classic sausage balls into something more exotic like the delicious, restaurant-worthy pizza sausage balls by using mini pepperonis! See? The possibilities are endless.

    1. I am limited to 19 carbs a day and am not allowed to use “net carbs”. Do we always figure actual carbs by adding protein to “net carb” amount in your recipes. Wish you could put full carbs somewhere. I love your recipes, but many have too many carbs for me.

      1. I am working on adding total carbs to all of my recipes. until then, you can comment on each one you want to make asking the total carbs and I will reply back. Total carbs for one biscuit is 1.5 grams.

    2. I just discovered your YouTube channel! This is a life saver for me and my husband as we get back on our Keto journey after including too many unhealthy non-keto foods during the holidays. We both love your KetoFocus postings, they are packed with practical information and we love your recipes. I’ve discovered new foods to include, such as macadamia milk, and remembered ones that we used to use regularly. I really liked your walk through your fridge. A video on coming along on one of your shopping trips would be great.

      Your recipe for enchiladas using sliced deli chicken opened up a whole new bunch of ideas.

      As for your breakfast biscuits, mmmmm good. I’ve already included chopped crispy bacon. Also ham, pepperoni or shrimp might be good. Have you tried crab meat in these? We live in the Pacific Northwest and would love seafood recipes, especially chowders. And as many soup recipes as you can create!

      New loyal fans,
      Bill and Connie

      1. Thanks Bill and Connie! I’m glad you are enjoying the YouTube channel and recipes. I will have more soup recipes coming out this weekend as well as a clam chowder recipe in the next few months.

          1. when substituting almond flour for coconut flour, your recommendation above says to use 4 times the amount??? Do you mean 4 times the amount of coconut flour listed in the ingredients list? or 1/4 cup?

    3. Your recipes are consistently delish and easy to follow. This is a family favorite. I greatly appreciate what you do. I also love the keto granola. It satisfies my cereal craving. I have it with unsweetened almond/coconut milk and a few blueberries. Keep it coming!

    4. We just made these for the first time and they are yummy! They turned out perfect. We followed the recipe but used a cheese blend instead of all cheddar. We really look forward to having them for a grab and go breakfast the rest of this week. ♡

    5. This was a knock my socks off total winner! I’ve tried a few recipes lately from other keto sites and got discouraged… keep up the yummy recipes!

    6. I’m cooking these now. Followed directions specifically, but as I’m looking at the through oven door and they’re almost done, they seem to be swimming in melted butter. Is this normal?

    7. They are delicious. I just drained on paper towels. Thank you for all of your hard work in presenting wonderful recipes.

    8. I am New to keto and loved this recipe! Super easy and yummy. May add some jalapeños next time 🙂

    9. I just stumbled across your channel & website and am LOVING it! My daughter is highly allergic to all things coconut. Can it be substituted with something else? Almond flour maybe?

    10. Hi

      First try…they came out sort of like chocolate chip cookies..they flattened rather than raised?? Was i suppose to drain the sausage? Did I not add quite enuff baking powder…what did I do wrong? PS they look weird, but are very tasty

    11. I made the Sausage Cheddar Biscuits yesterday. YUM! Easy recipe. I did find that my batter was more running than yours but I’ll adjust a bit on my measurements the next time I make them. I wrapped them individually and froze them for next week(s) quick grab ‘n go meals. I will definitely be adding this to my recipe rotation.

    12. I watch your YouTube channel from my iPad. The pop up ads and the java script to print the recipe make it a real PIA to print recipe. Is it possible to make a simple button to print the recipe without all the bells and whistles. Ty. No, I’m not very tech savvy ?

      1. Not sure what you are referring to. There are no pop up ads on this website. It pops up the print preview to print that document and that’s all. You can’t get any easier than that.

    13. Baking these for the first time today. Love the YouTube channel too. It’s been helping with the rush after work to finish dinner. How many total biscuits does this make? I got like 10 but the phot showed 6 so I’m worried I make them too small?

    14. Annie, I am new to Keto and just love your YouTube Channel and your website. I have made these biscuits and they are delicious!

    15. There so so delicious!!! I’ve made them numerous times now and still haven’t gotten tired of them. I change it up a bit by adding different spices, sometimes adding chopped green onions, chopped bell pepper or I’ll switch up the kind of cheese. My friends who aren’t on Keto love them too!! Thanks so much for sharing this one!!

    16. These are so good. They’re going to be an easy, welcome staple around here.
      I used ground Turkey (not breast) and added my own sausage seasoning (including fresh herbs from my garden), and I used a Mexican blend of cheese with a little spice to it.
      I’ve eaten them for breakfast, for a snack, and for dinner with a salad. Great recipe!

    18. Hands down my favorite part of the Keto way of eating are these biscuits!!! I’ve used different seasonings to change it up from week to week that don’t add to the net carb count ie garlic, green onions etc. Thank you for this recipe as it has helped me stay true!

    19. I just made these & they are delicious!! I used to love Sausage McMuffins so I added some sugar-free maple syrup (only 2 Tbsp) & a few drops of maple pecan flavoring & they sure tasted like the fast-food ones!. I cut the cheese in half as I didn’t have much on hand & they were still perfect! Thank you for the recipe!!

    20. Absolutely delish! I baked them in silicone cupcake liners so they were almost like a muffin. The flavor was perfection!

    21. Today is Day 72 of eating low carb (pre-diabetic), your recipes and videos have been a true life saver or me learning how to eat (and cook) all over again, we’re a family of five (3 kids) so not much time to experiment….thank goodness you’ve already done that…have been stocking freezer with variations of these crispy biscuits my whole family loves!

      And, also, wanted to share my 7 year old absolutely LOVES your chocolate avocado pudding (topped with homemade Cool Whip)…he and I eat it for breakfast, yes!, one morning he rose extra early just to devour it and then went back to bed. Now, that should encourage anyone to “just try it!” I use Ghirardelli dutch process cocoa, Saigon cinnamon, and Watkins baking vanilla. I freeze large batches in 1/2 cup containers and just thaw in fridge overnight. Can’t thank you enough, from a homeschool mom who cherishes time and meals whole family loves (like your Keto lasagna with turkey deli slices!)

      1. Thank you Jill!! I’m so glad the recipes are helping. I love that your 7 year old enjoys the pudding. That is adorable!

    22. Everyone in the house loves these! I didn’t have coconut flour so subbed in 1 1/3 C Almond flour. They are amazing. I love that I can reheat them throughout the week for a quick breakfast – if there are any left!
