I love a good biscuit! Buttery and cheesy is my favourite, but I won’t turn any biscuit away to be honest. Today I am sharing my low carb biscuit recipe loaded with cheesy goodness.

Lately, I have been trying to reduce my carb intake. I am not on a keto diet, but I am aiming to reduce my carb-loving ways significantly for the time being under my doctors instructions. The struggle is real, you guys! I am a carbaholic. through and through. I’ve always been one -just ask my parents about the small forture they spent on baby cereals cause that’s pretty much all I would eat when I was a tiny tot! Trying to go without my beloved pastas and breads isn’t easy, but I am determined to stick to it for as long as I need to.

I started off strong but pretty soon, I was getting tired of the protein + veggie combos all my meals seemed to have turned into. I made so many delicious meals and tried to keep things interesting but I really did get tired of eating meat/fish/egg heavy dishes loaded with piles of veggies. As yummy as they are, I was missing my pastas and breads.

I went about a week without breads, rice and pasta before I started dreaming up ideas for some low carb alternatives. One week. I found an amazing recipe for a 90 second microwave bread by Eating on a Dime which I have been using to make killer breakfast sandwiches. So good! This recipe uses almond flour and it got me thinking about all the other things I can make with almond flour.

I broke out my biscuit recipe and started playing around with it to replace the all purpose flour in it with almond flour. I’ve been recipe testing for some time now and have finally landed on a recipe that I love! Cheesy biscuits without flour. Yes, indeed. My carb loving heart is satisfied and I hope yours will be too!
