Easy Almond Flour Biscuits Recipe

Classic Southern Buttermilk Biscuits versus Almond Flour Biscuits. Biscuits are the undisputed house bread of the South only rivaled by cornbread. We love’ em and we can’t get enough of ’em. From time to time I have followers request Southern favorites using a different flour and this recipe is the result of such requests. Please note, almond flour isn’t as light as all purpose of self rising wheat flour and the texture of these biscuits will reflect that. While we don’t have anyone in our home who’s gluten free, these are a nice change and we love the flavor of the almond flour. Ingredients you’ll need to make quick lower carb Almond Flour Biscuits:

  • Flour – 3 cups superfine blanched almond flour (not almond meal).
  • Leavening – Baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Milk – Full fat buttermilk, well shaken.
  • Fat – Salted butter, melted.
  • Eggs – Two large eggs.

How to make the BEST Almond Flour Biscuits Recipe

  • Kitchen tools you’ll need to make Almond Flour Biscuits: Medium bowl, whisk, measuring cups and spoons, cast iron skillet or similar oven safe skillet or pan, small bowl and pastry brush.
  • Please note, these biscuits are best using a super fine almond flour and not almond meal.
  • A regular size ice cream scoop is ideal for dividing the dough. It’s not necessary to flatten them in the skillet, they do spread while baking.
  • Eggs are not a typical ingredient you add to classic Southern buttermilk biscuits. They are necessary when baking with almond flour. You don’t taste the egg, it serves as a binder and leavening. Without eggs, these biscuits won’t hold together.
  • Please use full fat or lower fat buttermilk not fat free for the best flavor.
  • In a pinch, if you have to make your own buttermilk: Add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice or white distilled vinegar to whole milk (not fat free) for each cup of buttermilk called for in the recipe. Let stand for 5 minutes, then proceed.
  • Cast iron heats evenly, holds heat more efficiently and gives these biscuits a fantastic golden bottom. That said, you can bake these in any similar size oven safe skillet or baking pan.
  • The biscuits will spread while baking so, it’s ideal to bake them in a pan instead of on a baking sheet.
  • Store baked Almond Flour Biscuits tightly wrapped in foil for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat in a 350°F air fryer or in the microwave in single servings.

    This is a great base recipe. For breakfast, I add blueberries, orange zest and soy milk with the juice of that orange in place of buttermilk.
    Adding grated cheese, minced jalapeños and corn kernels with a sprinkling of salt and pepper is yummy. When I crave something sweet, I add pumpkin spices, walnuts, and mashed banana or pumpkin purée. Honestly, the sky is the limit with this recipe.

    I am unable to have buttermilk, so I made them with the same amount of full fat coconut milk. They came out AMAZING!

  3. I am following the SCD plan and I’m wondering if I could substitute additional baking soda for the baking powder as well as fermented 24 hr kefir or thinned yogurt for the buttermilk? If so would the measurement ratios be the same?

    1. Hi Lettie, both are great questions. I haven’t tested those adaptations and can’t answer specifically but my thought is, these biscuits could be adapted. If you try it, let us know how it goes!

    Hi Jo Anne,
    Can I use Greek yogurt as substitute for buttermilk ? 1:1 ratio ? Thanks.

    Do you have a low carb grain free gravy recipe ? Thx.

    1. Greek yogurt thinned out with a little milk could work. Measure the amount after thinning, to avoid adding too much liquid to the biscuit dough. You could adapt sausage gravy using almond flour.

    I have been craving biscuits for a while and wanted to use the buttermilk I purchased for another dish. I found your recipe and made it today. They turned out great, even though I didn’t have enough eggs and used plain yogurt as a substitute. They are still yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  8. Thank you so much for this low carb recipe. I can’t wait to try it. I appreciate reading all your recipes, but for those of us who choose low carb, this is wonderful. More please.
