Keto Cheddar Garlic Biscuits are a super tasty, low carb, cheesy garlic biscuit that rivals a high carb restaurant favorite.
This copy cat version of a favorite biscuit is only 2g net carbs per biscuit.
A perfectly yummy biscuit to serve with your favorite low-carb soups, chili, or any favorite dinner or breakfast.
Before I had to start eating gluten-free & low carb, I remember that I loved going to a particular seafood restaurant.
This restaurant always serves these amazing cheesy garlic biscuits that are so very addictive.
The whole family would get slightly aggressive over the basket of cheesy garlic biscuits.
My mother-in-law, who is such a character, would always stash all the biscuits from the restaurant in her large, tote-bag-sized purse.
I remember being very embarrassed at the time, but now it makes for such a funny & classic memory of my mother-in-law being her quirky self.
It is funny how the things that annoy you the most about a person, can also be what you miss after a person is gone.
Our family loves this, low-carb copy-cat version of cheesy garlic biscuits. They also fight over the biscuits at dinner, which is always a good sign.
Next time I will make a double batch of these biscuits.
Common Questions About the Keto Cheesy Garlic Biscuits Recipe
The xanthan gum is optional and can be omitted. The recipe works fine without it. I do find that it does make a slightly better texture in baking gluten-free bread & biscuits.
You can use jack cheese or pepper jack in place of cheddar if you prefer, but the biscuits will have a different flavor.
I prefer the almond flour in this recipe as coconut flour can be slightly sweet in flavor for this savory type of recipe.
If there are leftover biscuits, then they can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. They can be reheated in the microwave for a few seconds (around20-25 seconds), or a warm oven for a few minutes (3 minutes) before serving.

This was my first keto baking experience. As I was mixing it, the texture of the dough seemed a little questionable, but were way better than I anticipated. Now I have not been able to have gluten for 9+ years, so I may be a little tainted…
Had a little bit of a cornmeal texture, which I liked. Made for someone not GF and not on Keto and they said they enjoyed. Would make again!
Thank you, Jory, for trying the recipe and for your kind words.

Lou, Thank you for trying the recipe & for your kind words.

Thank you, Asha; I'm so thrilled you enjoyed the recipe. Sorry, I can't have a picture uploader as I would have to hire someone to police that 24/7 because some people would upload some very inappropriate photos and get me in big trouble.

Erin, My mother in law liked to hoard & stash them in her purse so we would not get any of them, and then she would ask the server for more, lol. 🙂
These look great! And sour cream in baked goods gives such great texture.

Biscuits with cheese? Sold!! So much delicious flavor in every bite!
These biscuits have helped me to lose almost 50 lbs. Have been on a Keto diet since September and I make a batch every week. I love them as a mini breakfast sandwich with a little scrambled egg and bacon. Delicious.
Wow, congratulations, Christine!
Savory and delicious! This is a winner everyone in the family enjoys.
