I. Love. Bread. Any and all bread. We’re best friends. Well, we used to be, until our family cut all grains from our lives. While I’m a firm believer that bread must be bread and that “fake” breads (aka: paleo/keto substitutions) just don’t cut it, sometimes you need a bread-like substance with your meal.

Delicious Low-Carb Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

There are very few bread subs that make it to my a-ok list, but these biscuits are right up there. I could go through a basket of biscuits at Red Lobster like nobody’s business, but now I can do that at home and not feel so guilty about it. I may have done some math and found that 8 of these biscuits equal the carb count of just 1 from the restaurant. I’ll take that.

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

Melted Butter Topping

The most important step of this recipe is the melted butter topping. Do. Not. Skip that. It’s key to the perfectly buttery, garlicky flavor that these biscuits are known for.

Yield: 10
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes



  • 4 Tbsp Grass-Fed Butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 scoops Prebiotin Prebiotic Fiber
  • 1 1/2 oz Shredded Cheese, scant 1 cup


  • 2 Tbsp Butter, melted
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Generously grease 10 cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with avocado oil (or use nonstick liners, like foil or silicone). Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter, sour cream, and eggs. Whisk them all together until it is very smooth, not chunky or lumpy at all.
  3. Add in all the dry ingredients and mix together with a spoon or spatula (the mixture will get too thick for the whisk). until thoroughly combined and smooth. Fold in the shredded cheese.
  4. Place approximately 1/4 cup of batter into each of the greased muffin cups (using a large cookie scoop for this ensures evenly distributed batter). Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are golden and crispy and the inside is cooked through.
  5. While the biscuits are baking, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter and stir in the salt, garlic, and parsley. Remove the cooked biscuits from the oven and brush the melted butter mixture on them right away.
  6. Biscuits are best served hot (and eaten the same day), but can be made in advance (ideally, same day) and served at room temp or reheated for a few minutes in the oven.

Would it make the same in a cast iron skillet like corn bread instead of muffin cups?

I'm not sure it would bake completely in the center, the dough is a bit more wet than a cornbread batter.

Would psyllium husk powder work in place of the prebiotin fibre?

I don't think it would, they act very differently in baked goods. I do not like the results of psyllium husk in anything I've tried, it's usually airy and squishy, not more dense and flaky like this biscuit should be.

Where do you get prebiotin prebiotic fibre and other ingredients that aren't found in many grocery stores?

Can you make these without the prebiotin prebioctic fibre?

I have coconut flour on hand.... do you think I can substitute it?

Kendra Benson

Coconut flour has a very different texture and end-result than the almond flour and will not sub 1:1. I think if you do (it would be more of a 1:3 ratio), that the biscuits would be more dense and less fluffy. And probably have a coconuty-taste, which I'm not too fond of.
