Some Good Low Carb Biscuits

with one comment

These biscuits are pretty tasty..Darlin Dan ate 2.
Here’s the recipe–Fluffy Biscuits-from Healthy Indulgences
Adapted from a recipe by Laura Dolson

LAUREN’S FLUFFY BISCUITS
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond flour, 4 ounces
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda or 3/4 teaspoon baking powder *
1 1/2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, shortening or pork fat, 18 grams or 1/2 ounce **
4 egg whites

In a medium bowl, mix the almond flour, salt and baking soda or powder with a fork. Cut in the fat using the fork until the butter is all incorporated and the mixture is crumbly and not dry. Chill this mixture for at least 5 minutes and preferably longer to get the fat as cold as possible.

In a small bowl, beat the egg whites with the fork until they look foamy. Add the egg whites to the almond flour mixture and whisk together with the fork for just a couple seconds breaking up any large chunks of flour. The batter will be thin and lumpy. Divide this into four portions in a muffin top pan greased very well or lined with nonstick foil. Bake immediately so that the fat doesn’t start to get warm. Bake at 400º for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 4 biscuits
Can be frozen

* The recipe seems to work with either one. I used baking soda. Although baking powder does have carbs, there are not enough to affect the counts.
