Who doesn’t love a warm biscuit? These are very versatile and can be used to satisfy either a sweet or savory biscuit need. You can omit the cheese, onion powder and jalapeno if you’re looking for a more traditional plain biscuit. These are from Transforming Recipes, The Ultra Low-Carb Edition. There are tons of other yummy low-carb recipes including smoked salmon deviled eggs which are now the only deviled eggs I make. Delicious! If you’d like to see these biscuits made step-by-step with photos, you can find that here.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil
4 eggs
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp onion powder – more if desired
1/4 tsp salt – more if desired
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup diced jalapeno
Non-stick cooking spray – optional

Set oven to 400 degrees and prepare a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.In a large mixing bowl whisk the egg and coconut oil together. You may want to warm up the oil first if it’s solid in form. In a small mixing bowl add the coconut flour, baking powder, onion powder and salt. Mix together with a fork, making sure to remove any lumps in the coconut flour. Add the dry ingredients to the large mixing bowl with the egg mixture and mix together until a thick dough is formed. Add the shredded cheese to the dough and fold it all together, then fold in diced jalapeno.

Using a large spoon, scoop out 5 servings of dough and place them on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Try to keep the spoonfuls equal in size so that they cook evenly, and avoid pressing down on the balls on dough. You want them to be tall like biscuits, not flat like pancakes.

Place the baking sheet with the biscuit dough into the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes. They are done when the edges are brown and the tops are a golden color. Remove promptly and let cool.
