How to Make Low Carb Biscuits

How to Make Low Carb Biscuits

While being quarantined during the Covid-19 pandemic, one of the things it offered was an immense amount of time. A lot of time with family, playing games, trying out new hobbies, and of course, cooking. There was A LOT of time in the kitchen.

This particular low carb biscuit recipe was a bit of an accident. I was attempting to make low carb pretzels, but I couldn’t recall the directions off-hand. I remembered that it called for cream cheese, which I had none, so I already knew I had to do some playing around with the ingredients. In fact, as I was mixing the items together, I found that the consistency was much looser than I expected, making it difficult to form the dough into a pretzel shape. Because of that, I decided to keep it simple and avoid trying to manipulate it into a shape. So, with a little guessing and a close eye, once they were placed in the oven, it resulted in five, round “biscuits.” They were similar to a small hamburger bun or muffin top. Adding the seasoning on top was the perfect final step for that flavor we all love on a bagel.

This would be a great low carb substitution for a hamburger bun or even served beside a bowl of soup for dipping. Or, how about spreading some cream cheese on it just like a bagel? I would have loved to try any of these options, but they disappeared so fast that there were none left over for experimenting – I barely got to taste them myself! I suppose that’s what happens when you have so many taste-testers with A LOT of time to volunteer their services. Try them for yourself!

*Update: I made another batch and there was actually some leftover! I stored them in an air-tight container and kept them in the refrigerator. For a quick lunch, I toasted one and topped it with whipped cream cheese – it was great!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Melt the mozzarella cheese in a bowl for one minute, and then continuing in 30-second increments if needed.
  3. Add the almond flour, egg, baking powder, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  4. Fold the ingredients together but don’t overdo it. It may seem like it won’t mix, but it will – just keep folding! The consistency will be sticky and gooey to the touch.
  5. Take large spoonfuls of the mixture and drop them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving about 2 inches in between. This recipe produces 5-6 scoops of dough.
  6. Press the dough down to form a circle similar to a large cookie. This will also keep the seasonings from falling off.
  7. Sprinkle the Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend on top.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Bread will stiffen as they cool. Serve and enjoy!
