These keto biscuits are the perfect low carb side dish. You're only 6 ingredients away from a delicious air fryer recipe that cooks in only 10 minutes!
Biscuits can be difficult to conquer. In the high carb world, they're simple--largely because flour can be easier to work with. In the keto world, we have to get a bit more creative.
But these air fryer drop biscuits are absolutely delicious. Whether you're pairing them with sausage gravy for a hearty keto biscuits and gravy, or enjoying them on the side of some keto fried chicken, you simply can't go wrong with this recipe.
Can I eat biscuits on keto?
Like I said, regular, high carb biscuits are a lot easier to figure out, but that shouldn't hinder you from trying something new!
Here's the nutritional breakdown for these low carb, air fryer biscuits.
For 6 servings (I prefer this because you get bigger biscuits!):
Calories: 306 Calories
Total Carbs: 12.66g
Net Carbs: 8.66g
And for 8 servings (slightly smaller biscuits, but less calories and carbs):
Calories: 229 Calories
Total Carbs: 9.49g
Net Carbs: 6.49g
Just eat what best fits into your plan. You can make even smaller biscuits and do 12 servings. I think this recipe is so good and filling, it's worth figuring out how to fit it into your keto diet.
What ingredients do I need to make keto biscuits?
The six easy ingredients are all pantry staples that you probably already have in your kitchen if you've been living the low carb lifestyle for a while. They are:
Almond Flour - I prefer to use Blue Diamond Finely Sifted.
Baking Powder - Make sure it's still fresh--check the date on it. Baking powder tends to be one of those ingredients that can stay on your shelves for a very long time because you only use a little bit of it at a time. Older baking powder hinders you from getting the rise you're looking for. When in doubt, I recommend just grabbing a new can.
Salt - I have grown partial to Pink Himalayan salt, but you can definitely use regular table salt for this recipe.
Sour Cream - We don't use too much of it, but sour cream really helps add the moisture these biscuits need. Nobody wants dry biscuits.
Eggs - This recipe calls for two large eggs. Don't worry about them being room temperature. In my experience with this recipe it really doesn't matter.
Butter - In my opinion, everything is better with butter! And it's so essential for good low carb biscuits!
How to make biscuits in the air fryer
It's truly so simple. Don't worry about mixing the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients or sifting the almond flour with the baking powder.
All you need to do is mix all the ingredients together, and stir. I used a wooden spoon and it was super simple.
BUT the one thing I did at the end that I think makes a difference is CHILLING THE DOUGH. Popping the bowl into the refrigerator for 5 minutes before cooking the biscuits in the air fryer helped them firm up and keep shape while cooking.
I wouldn't skip that step.
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 large eggs
- Preheat the air fryer to 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix until dough is well combined.
- Place bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 5 minutes.
- Spray air fryer basket with cooking spray and scoop spoonfuls of the biscuit dough directly into the air fryer basket, at least 2 inches apart.
- Cook for 10-12 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown and firm.
- Remove biscuits from air fryer and serve immediately.
