5 Ingredient Cheesy Keto Biscuit
Easy Keto Biscuit
What makes a cheesy Keto biscuit better is when it’s an easy Keto biscuit to make. And this one definitely is with just 5 ingredients. Now I didn’t grow up eating biscuits and if you asked me about 5 years ago I’d be thinking something else. In India when you say biscuit it refers to a cookie and not a bread like accompaniment. So it was a bit odd for me to keep hearing people talk about eating biscuits with gravy. Anyway I’ve gotten use to that and this recipe has been long overdue. So enjoy!
This recipe can be made in the microwave or the oven. I’ll be honest, there is a taste difference. I love the way it tastes cooked in the oven, but the microwave is quicker. Just zap it in the microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. If you use the oven it’s 200C for about 12-15 minutes. You should do the toothpick test at 10 minutes ideally.
Now I chose to use butter as the cooking fat of choice for this recipe for two reasons. I like butter and it adds some flavour to the biscuit as well. However you can use lard, bacon fat, goose fat, olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil etc. Any of them will be fine. You can also experiment with different seasonings and adding more cheese and a cheese blend as well. Enjoy!

Cheesy Keto Biscuits
- 30 grams Almond Flour I use this
- 15 grams Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Egg
- 1 Clove Minced Garlic
- 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Tbsp Butter Order online
- Salt & Pepper
- Melt the butter and minced garlic for 30 seconds in the microwave.
- Once it's cooled add in the egg and give it a good whisk. After that add in the cheddar cheese, baking powder, almond flour and season with salt and pepper. Give everything a good mix.
- Grease a ramekin with butter and pour in the biscuit batter. You can either cook this for 90 seconds in the microwave on high or you can cook in a pre-heated oven at 200C for about 15 minutes. Check at 10min with a toothpick and once that toothpick comes out clean, it's done.
- Now allow it to cool for a bit before removing from the ramekin.
- Serve with your fav dish.
Looking for your gravy recipe, so I can give it a good mix… Cheers…
Made a couple of these today (added some flaked chillies for extra kick) and loaded them up with bacon for a bacon butty. Absolutely outstanding!
Can’t wait to try this! I’ll have to tweak it a bit as 8 carbs is more than I have per meal, but I’ll figure something out! Loving your cook book by the way!
What’s the ratio if I have to use coconut flour?
50% less than almond flour.
I tried a few variations (different amounts of baking powder and cheese). My favourite is a little less garlic, double the cheese, and bake in the oven. I used silicon mini-loaf tins; slice horizontally and load with butter and bacon.
Awesome recipe!! I added an extra smaller clove of garlic as well as some fresh parsley.
Oh Gosh! Made these today, and I think this will be a new permanent item in my Keto repitoire! They were fantastic, and not heavy at all!
I want to try these soon!
Thanks for this recipe! I tried it tonight but with a major substitution: 10 grams of coconut flour instead of 30 grams of almond flour. (following the 3:1 ratio rule) because there‘s no almond flour in the house at the moment. Worked like a charm!
So quick and easy, and so delicious, thank you
Do you think this would still work if I substituted the egg with xantham gum and a bit of (whey) protein powder? Am so fed up of eating eggs at the moment lol
You can’t taste the egg in this. But you can try doing that I don’t know if it will work.
Thank you, I will cut this into round shapes and use it for my smoked salmon base with cream cheese with some chives from my garden, appreciate what share!
What’s the ratio if I want to use coconut flour instead of almond flour?
50% LESS. So if I use 2 tbsp almond flour you use 1 tbsp coconut flour.
