Low carb, Gluten-free Almond Buttermilk biscuits! Yes, there are super healthy, and delicious. Perfectly tender and fluffy. They are keto and paleo-friendly too!
If you are looking for a healthy alternative for cookies or biscuits, this one is for you. They are so good. Also, Perfect for any occasion and great accompaniment from salad to tea.
Almond biscuits come together with just a few ingredients and 25 minutes. Surprisingly, these are very easy to make. However, they do not rise much while baking due to lack of starch and gluten. Having said that, they are excellent, fragrant and good enough to binge on them (like I did today 😝)
This buttermilk biscuit recipe is extremely versatile. You can add in spices and customize it per your taste. I used poppy seeds and rosemary. Here are few variations that you can try –
- Use Italian seasoning and sprinkle cheese
- Use garlic and thyme or rosemary (dried herbs)
- If you like them spicy, add paprika, cloves to almond biscuits.
- You can also add Indian spices like fennel seeds, coriander, nutmeg, and ginger to give that punchy kick of masala biscuit to serve along with Tea.
- or even better, just butter them up and have along with your breakfast (my kind of favourite)
If you want just paleo biscuits, use ghee, and for diary free option (Vegan), use coconut oil.
