Amazing Keto Biscuits
There are so many ways to use biscuits. You can serve biscuits at dinner along with savory foods or you can top them with fresh strawberries and make strawberry shortcakes. You can slice a biscuit in half and make it into a breakfast sandwich. You can even dip a biscuit into your tea to enjoy as an afternoon treat. Biscuits are so versatile that everyone needs to have a good biscuit recipe on hand.
This can pose a challenge to us keto followers who need to use low carb ingredients to make tasty biscuits. It can be tricky to find a great biscuit in the grocery store that sticks to the low carb diet. Instead of searching for a unicorn in the grocery store, why not just make your own delicious keto biscuits. Our recipe is perfect for all your sweet and savory biscuit needs! They are also pretty easy to make and only take about 5 minutes to put together. That means you can make fresh biscuits anytime!
Our biscuit recipe revolves around coconut flour. Coconut flour is a great, low-carb flour that makes dense, delicious foods. Coconut flour is made from dried coconut meat. The flesh of the coconut is completely dehydrated and then ground into a fine powder. Coconut flour actually looks very similar to wheat flour and, when dry, has almost the same, fluffy texture. The two flours do bake very differently.
Coconut flour does not have gluten like regular wheat flour. Gluten is what holds breads and baked goods together. When you bake with coconut flour, you need to use a binder or your baked goods will crumble apart. Our recipe uses xanthan gum as the binder for the biscuits. Xanthan gum is another natural ingredient made from fermented sugar (don’t worry, it’s low carb!). Adding just a tiny bit of powdered xanthan gum will give your coconut flour biscuits the perfect texture. It may seem like such a small ingredient but don’t skip it! Without the xanthan gum, you will have crumbly biscuits on your hands!
To make the keto coconut flour biscuits, mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Blend in the wet ingredients and form a thick batter. Let the batter sit for ten minutes. This will give the coconut flour time to absorb the moisture in the batter and thicken even more. Letting the batter rest will also improve the texture of the biscuits and make them even more tender after baking.
I like to scoop the biscuit batter using an ice cream scoop to get perfect, round balls. However, you can just use a spoon to make dough piles about 3 tablespoons in size. Bake the biscuits for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown. When you remove the biscuits from the oven, immediately brush them with some melted butter to give them a rich, decadent taste. Melted butter will also give the biscuits a nice matte shine.
