If you like cheese, this recipe will make you very, very happy!

I adapted my speedy savoury scones a.k.a almond flour biscuits by adding cheddar (and tweaking it to make it work with this additional ingredient). And I have to say, I am seriously pleased with the result!

A quick explanation biscuits are in the US what we would call savoury scones here in the UK: light and slightly flaky bread rolls that can be enjoyed on their own, with fillings or with a meal. Ive made them gluten free and keto by using almond flour instead of wheat.

Can you imagine mopping up gravy with these cheesy low carb biscuits? Well, I have done just that, and it was very enjoyable indeed! Of course, you could also serve them with a soup or a salad for lunch. Or why not turn them into a low carb sandwich and fill with ham, cheese, lettuce and sliced cucumber?

How to make cheesy Keto biscuits step by step:

almond flour, eggs, butter and grated cheese in a bowl

1.) Stir together the almond flour / ground almonds and the baking powder. Then add the beaten eggs, melted butter and grated cheddar.

2.) Mix with an electric mixer until you have a crumbly dough and the grated cheese is broken down into smaller pieces. You can also do this in a food processor.

If you stir the dough together with a fork, you will end up with larger cheese clusters (provided that you use pre-shredded cheddar as I did). If you grate the cheddar yourself with a grater that produces smaller cheese pieces, combining the dough with a fork will work perfectly.

3.) Form balls weighing circa 30 grams each with your hands and flatten them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Each disk should be around 1 inch thick.

Tip: You dont want to squeeze the dough together too much. Leave some air in it, this will help the low carb biscuits to rise.

Bake for around 22-25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Recipe tips and variations

Im using ground almonds in this recipe this is what we call regular almond flour over here in the UK. It is coarser than super-fine almond flour. I think it works better in this recipe because it creates a light, fluffy and more crumbly texture a little bit like a scone. If you really, really want to use super-fine almond flour, reduce the amount to 2 cups / 200g.

The cheese make a call on this based on preference. I used a strong cheddar. Medium cheddar would work well too, but result in a less cheesy taste. I dont recommend using a mild cheddar or even grated mozzarella. Monterey Jack or a mature gouda would also be good choices.

To take the recipe up a notch, you could even add an additional 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan or pecorino. Alternatively, sprinkle the parmesan on top of your Keto biscuits before baking.

Or how about working 1 tbsp of chopped chives into the dough? Cheese and chives are a bit of a dream team

To lighten the fat content of this recipe, consider swapping out the butter for sour cream.
