Low Carb Breakfast Biscuits and Gravy
Biscuits and gravy on a keto diet?! Is that even possible? It absolutely is and it is incredibly delicious. Our perfectly golden, almond flour biscuits are mouthwatering on their own but when topped with an incredibly creamy sausage gravy, this is a breakfast you will not be able to resist. So get out your mixer, preheat your oven and get ready to make a keto meal you never dreamed possible.
As you may know, regular white flour is off-limits on the keto diet. White, all-purpose flour is full of carbs and has little in the way of nutrition in general. Our biscuits are made with almond flour which is essentially ground almonds. Almonds are perfect for keto baking as it has the texture of regular flour, lots of healthy fats and a yummy, nutty taste. Baked goods made with almond flour tend to be a little denser than a traditional baked good but that can also be part of the charm. In order to make these biscuits a little more light and fluffy, our recipe asks you to whip egg whites and fold them into the batter. This helps the biscuits puff up as they bake and make a perfect keto baked good.
We like to bake the biscuits in a muffin tin as the batter is quite soft and does not hold its shape well. You can, however, bake the muffins on a sheet tray if you’d like. Simply line a tray with a piece of parchment or a silicone baking mat. Drop spoonful’s of the biscuit dough on the tray and then bake until the edges of the biscuit are golden brown (about 10-12 minutes). The biscuits will be a little flatter but taste just as great!
When following a keto diet, you want to be sure you get a good amount of healthy fats added into your diet. After all, fats are now your primary energy source! You will definitely be getting a good amount of fats when you use this recipe (21 grams per serving, in fact!). The sausage and cream cheese in the gravy is one source of fats while the almonds in the biscuits are another fantastic source. Starting your day with a nice helping of keto biscuits and gravy will set you up with the energy you need to tackle the day!
You can easily make this recipe ahead of time, setting yourself up with an amazing weekday breakfast option. The biscuits will keep at room temperature for 4-5 day when wrapped well. They heat up beautifully in the toaster oven or microwave. The gravy will keep for the same amount of time when stored in the fridge. Make a double batch to have breakfast for the whole family, for the whole week! Keto eating, is good eating.
