A cross between keto garlic bread and biscuits appropriate for literally any occasion you can think of.
I have a one-track mind and it’s usually headed straight for toast town.
Not toast per se, but just a hot slice of bread in general really seems to elicit some *feelings* that could be deemed unholy. A lust for crust, if you will. Oh and GOD FORBID there be any sort of oil, garlic, or cheese with that bread. It’s like I go blind with desire and then somehow that song Hungry Eyes starts playing in my head? And then I need to lie down. Am I doomed?
What’s a bread-loving lady to do? Abstinence seems silly. And unnecessary. Giving into temptation just cheapens it! Plus you never feel good about it the next day.
SOLUTION: take a cold shower and bake some Buttery Keto Garlic Bread in the shape of Biscuits. It’s soft, tender, and the best of both bread worlds.
Gluten-free Keto-approved Garlic Bread Biscuits: For when you’re feeling that special kinda way
Here we have my laziest method of baking keto biscuit bread—casually torn apart and thrown into a hot buttered skillet.
Why get a skillet fire-hot and butter it up real nice? Easy. The bottoms get all crusty and buttery and, trust me when I say this—YOU WANT YOUR BOTTOMS BUTTERED AND CRUSTY.
This recipe is also designed to get a crustier exterior while maintaining a soft and moist interior. That’s why we use high heat and *delicately* measure our liquid ingredients.
Happiness in a Can (of parm)
You want (must have) herby olive oil and shakey parmesan for this recipe.
If you are not familiar with the ways of the shakey parmesan can, let me guide you. It is the BEST way to adorn your garlic bread and it is non-negotiable. Without it, you might as well just go eat some vegetables.
And even then, put some shakey parm on that broccoli, you absolute monster.
The Fine Print
A couple of key points to make sure your garlic bread biscuits are fully delicious!
- Make sure you GRIND your golden flaxseed meal, even if you bought it in ground form. I have made it both ways and the texture is noticeably different when you don’t re-grind!
- Don’t get fancy with rolling and cutting these biscuits. They are meant to be more like a drop biscuit! Lots of creases and crevices to hold delicious flavor (and olive oil).
- BAKE time VARIES but you want the first 8 minutes with no covering to establish a crispy crust. Then, bake until they are firm and let rest.

For the Biscuit-y Breads
- 1 1/2 cup Almond Flour
- 1/4 cup Finely Ground Golden Flax Meal-be sure to regrind it!
- 1/2 tbsp Allulose, or sweetener of choice
- 1 tsp Xanthan Gum
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tbsp Grated Parmesan Cheese*
- 1/2 tsp Flaky Salt
- 3 tbsp Butter, chilled + 1 tbsp for the skillet
- 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 tsp Heavy Cream, for added moisture
- 2 Large Eggs
To Slather With
- Pop your oven-safe skillet in the oven and heat to 425° while you mix your biscuit dough.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients: almond flour, re-ground golden flaxseed meal *see notes*, allulose, xanthan gum, baking soda, baking powder, and seasonings.
- Cut in the cold butter until the mixture looks sandy. Add the eggs, vinegar, and heavy cream and beat with an electric mixer until a sticky dough forms. If you have a stand mixer, that's best!
- Use an oven mitt to remove the skillet from the oven and toss in the extra tbsp of butter.
- Once the butter is melted, tear off five equal pieces of dough and gently form them into balls, leaving them rough. Arrange in the skillet and bake for exactly 8 minutes. Tent the pan with foil and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
- Brush biscuits with olive oil, season with herbs, and tons of shakey parm!!
Golden Flaxseed Meal really does need to be ground even finer than what you get in the grocery store for better texture. Just pop it in a bullet blender or a clean coffee grinder!
Grated Parmesan is what I call "shakey parm" and is the powdery version you find in the grocery store. It's the best for these garlic bread biscuits!
