Easy keto biscuits using Carbquik

Let’s just start by saying that these biscuits are not clean keto. So welcome to the dirty side of keto. During the week I do eat on the clean side. But on the weekends I do mix it up. What is better than a big old Sunday morning breakfast? But that same breakfast can really knock a person off track.

My old biscuit recipe has 66 grams of carbs and 64 net carbs. So I can not be doing that anymore. I needed a low-carb version of biscuits and this recipe is just what I needed.

As an alternative to plain flour, I am using Carbquick. It is made from wheat so it’s not gluten-free and not technically keto. It is also highly processed so it’s not even close to clean. But it does make a decent biscuit.

I bought my Carbquick at Walmart. You can also use my affiliate link (I do earn a commission if you use it) to buy it for about double the price on Amazon.

Carbquick has a high percentage of fiber to carb ratio or a low net carbs number. But diabetics should take note: I have seen reports of people testing blood glucose before and after eating Carbquick. Most report the results were what was expected based on the net carbs. However, some report increased blood sugar numbers.

For the rest of us, the high amount of fiber can cause other problems. Especially after being very strict all week and not getting enough fiber.

The box comes with a recipe that uses just Carbquick and water. You could try doing that. But I need some fat in my biscuits.

Biscuit dough in the food processor

To make the biscuits preheat your oven to 425F. While the oven is preheating to a food processor I add two cups of Crabquick, two Tablespoons of cold butter, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Pulse to cut in butter. The product already has some salt in it so if you are sensitive to salt leave it out.

Add half a cup of heavy cream (or whipping cream) and a quarter cup of water. Turn on the food processor until you get a crumbly-looking mixture. Pinch a little bit of the mixture and it should hold together. If it does not add more water or cream.

Use your hands to mash the dough into biscuits. To me, that works better than trying to roll them out and it makes less mess. After you form the biscuits place them on a lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 425F until golden brown (mine took 20 minutes). Remove from the oven and serve. If you so desire you can serve them with keto white sausage gravy.
