Cheesy Keto Biscuits – delicious! Even if you aren’t doing the Keto diet, you will love these biscuits! We had these at a friend’s house, and my husband couldn’t stop eating them!! SO good! LOADED with cheese! Cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, eggs, baking powder, almond flour, and melted butter. Can make individual biscuits or one large loaf. I like to brush the baked biscuits with melted butter and garlic powder. #keto #bread #lowcarb

A few months ago we had dinner at a friends house. She was dabbling in the Keto diet and served these Cheesy Keto Biscuits. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but they were DELICIOUS! Chicken Legs went crazy over them! He couldn’t stop eating them. I snagged the recipe from her so I could make them at home.
Now, these are not low-fat or low-calorie biscuits. They are LOADED with TONS of cheese. Cream cheese and mozzarella cheese. The only special ingredient in these Cheesy Keto Biscuits is Almond Flour. Almond flour is pretty common these days. I’ve found it at Walmart, Target, and Publix.
I used a 12-inch skillet and a large cookie scoop and got 16 biscuits. If you don’t want individual biscuits, I think you could just put the dough in the skillet or baking pan and make a loaf of bread. I like to brush the cooked biscuits with some melted butter and garlic powder.
Even if you aren’t doing the Keto diet, these biscuits are sure to please! We’ve made them several times and enjoyed them every single time!! They are great if you are doing a low-carb diet and missing bread!
Cheesy Keto Biscuits
- 1 (8-oz) block cream cheese
- 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 4 eggs
- 4 Tbsp baking powder
- 1⅓ cups almond flour
- 2 Tbsp melted butter
- Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a 12-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a saucepan over low heat, melt the cream cheese and mozzarella cheese together. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
- In a large bowl, combine the melted cheese, eggs, 4 Tbsp baking powder, and almond flour. Mix until smooth. Let stand for 10 to 20 minutes.
- Using a large cookie scoop, scoop dough and place in 12-inch cast iron skillet. Place skillet in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
- Remove skillet from refrigerator. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.
- Brush cooked biscuits with melted butter.

Have made these several times and are great!! Any suggestions on making them less salty?
use my homemade ranch dressing mix that is linked in the notes
I don’t have a cast iron skillet. Can I use regular baking pan?
I just use a regular pie pan and they turn out great!
Picking out which almond flour to use is very confusing. Blanched, unblanched, fine, super fine. Which one? And do you prefer a certain brand? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
I usually buy whatever is at Walmart. That is usually Bob’s Red Mill Super Fine Almond Flour – it is made with blanched almonds. You can get it on Amazon too – https://amzn.to/30dZrvj
Delish!! I’ve been missing my breakfast biscuits and these will work great fir my breakfast sandwiches!
Thanks fir the great recipe!
Excellent recipe! Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing
First timer mine came out great rose in the pan fine and very tasty now if i can stop at one biscuit…..lol
That is the hardest part of the recipe! LOL! Glad you enjoyed them!
Could I use gf flour instead of almond due to a nut allergy?
Just saw this recipe. Trying it tomorrow. Had a question about the pan. All my saucepans stick. Will it work if I melt the cheeses in the microwave 50% power instead?
You can try it.
Yes! Cube the cream cheese. Cook for 30 sec increments, stir each time. Continue until cheese is smooth
could use regular four, and not make it Keto?
I have not made this recipe with regular flour, so I can not say. Here is a version that is not Keto: https://www.plainchicken.com/cracked-out-7up-biscuits/
Regular flour will not work?
I have not tried this recipe with regular flour. This recipe is specifically made without it. I have lots of other great regular bread recipes on the blog. You can see them all in the bread category. https://www.plainchicken.com/category/recipes/bread/
Do you have to use almond flour?
Fantastic. Love them.
Can these be frozen? I’m going to try, but wondering if you already know. There are only 2 of us. I have 7 left.
I’m sure the leftovers will be fine frozen and reheated.
I wonder if this would work with coconut flour
OMG! I made these and they were super delicious! These are going to a staple in my meal rotation. Thanks for the recipe.
I'd given up on any keto bread then along came this recipe. OMG it is so good. Please try it. You won't be disappointed!
I've tried many keto biscuits before, these are by far the best! I've added freshly minced garlic to the butter before brushing on the baked biscuits. Yum! Thank you!
Can you leave these in the fridge longer? Like make ahead and pop in the oven when dinner is almost ready?
I think that would be fine. Enjoy.
Mine didn’t rise but taste good. I mixed all my ingredients together and then mixed in the Melted cheeses. Do you think I overworked the batter? Is there a particular order I need to add ingredients?
I add the ingredients in order as listed above. Could your baking powder be bad? Maybe try a new can and that might help with the biscuits rising more.
Hi Stephanie, thank you for this recipe, every time I make it I get rave reviews.
I've also started to use this dough as a gluten free deep dish crusted pizza, absolutely fantastic.
Great idea! I will have to give that a try the next time we make pizza. YUM!
Question? I have made this 3-4 times, and it is really tasty! How do you mix yours? Do you use an actual mixer? I do not, and do not really get anything ‘smooth’. I just mix it the best I can with a wooden spoon. I also just drop it in a butter-greased glass pie pan (it’s what I have). Yum! Just wondering how you achieve ‘smooth’… Thanks for the recipe!
I meant to ask if anyone has tried to freeze these?
I just made these in a foil lasagna pan & they turned out FANTASTIC! The only modifications I made other than the pan (I made balls &baked them in the pan that way) was I subbed one cup of shredded cheddar to mix with the mozzarella & I added a dash of herbs in the dough instead of the garlic butter on top as I don’t tolerate garlic well. Thank you for an easy keto friendly bread recipe! I have one for keto Hawaiian rolls that’s good but goes flat so I’m going to try the 4Tbsp of baking powder with that recipe to see if that helps.
I am wondering if I could substitute another cheese, like shredded cheddar, for the mozzarella?
I haven't tried any other cheese, but I don't see why not. Cheddar sounds good!
Just made this using cheddar because I didn't have mozzarella. It tasted deadly.
Recipe says 4 TABLESPOONS of baking powder. Is that a typo and should read 4 TEASPOONS?
NO – THE RECIPE IS CORRECT. 4 TABLESPOONS
This is the 2nd time I've made these. The 1st time they were flat, didn't let them sit long enough. These look like I did it correctly. Very good biscuit!
Mine came out feeling like a quiche. Is that normal?
The texture on these were perfection. Loved it!!!!! About to make another batch now. I have been keto for over a year and never tasted any bread like things taste as good as these!
How do you add the eggs to the hot melted cheese without them cooking? And what do I use if I don't have a cast iron skillet
You can use a cake pan.
Just tried this with some alterations; used coconut flour (didn't have any almond in the house) and hard cheddar and marbled cheddar instead of the mozzarella. I also baked them in a muffin tin individually which cut a couple mins off the cooking time! They turned out pretty tasty and the hard cheddar flavour offset the coconut flour (although it does still taste quite coconutty). Also mixed in some parsley with the garlic butter on top to make them look cuter. All in all a great recipe, would like to try with almond flour next time (or even regular flour if I'm not on keto), thanks for posting! 😀
Going to try jalepenos in it next time!
can you use jack cheese instead?
I’ve only made these as written, but I don’t see why other cheeses wouldn’t work. Let us know how they turn out!
Bread is my downfall at restaurants and family functions. These delicious rolls made it possible for me to make it through Thanksgiving without feeling deprived and I even lost a pound by bringing my own Keto dishes from your list. Thank you!
What is the best way to store these? Making tonight for the first time and we usually have leftovers. Thanks Stephanie!
Just store them in an airtight container
Is it possible to use less than 4 Tablespoons of Baking Powder? I thought they were a little bitter.
I have only made the biscuits as written. Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.
I love the soft texture of these biscuits, but mine turned out really, really salty tasting. Any tips?
So weird since there isn't any added salt in the recipe. Maybe try different brands of cheese?
Use unsalted butter
I made these tonight for dinner with a rotisserie chicken we made. They are so delicious! I did add a smidgen of garlic powder to the batter. And in the butter for the top. Other then that, followed the recipe to the letter. They taste incredible. I’d love them even if I wasn’t on Keto. Bravo!!
P.S. I am also a chef.
Mine went flat even after setting up in the fridge and turned out gummy inside. Hmmmm… Not sure what I did wrong.
Maybe your baking powder was bad – that is the only thing I can think of
Made these several times and love them. I even add garlic to them and sprinkle a but of fresh parmesan on top. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
Mine also went flat in the fridge and were very dense (didn't rise), but were still tasty. I used aluminum free baking power. Wonder if that made a difference?
Definitely could be. I use Clabber Girl baking powder
I made these for the first time. Oh My Gracious! My whole family loves them. I gotta figure out net carbs. I want to eat them all. So good.
So tasty and a great way to get our bread fix without feeling guilty! So easy to make too. They turned out great!
These are spectacular! Even the carbivores loved them. I had one of the leftovers with a sausage patty for breakfast this morning. I wasn't really missing bread on the keto diet, but my not-really-keto-more-lowish-carb hubby does so I made it for him. It's nice to have something we can both enjoy. Thanks again!
Super yummy and pretty easy. Definitely filled that bread hole in my meal planning. Also love that all the ingredients are pretty Keto basic.
Super yummy and pretty easy. Definitely filled that bread hole in my tummy! Also loved that I had everything on hand.
Trying these now! Hubs started Keto this week and can’t wait to try them!
I love your recipes and have been doing Keto for about a month! I'd love, love, love to see more Keto recipes from you. I'm going to try these biscuits over the weekend.

How much garlic powder do you add to the melted butter to brush on top?
A dash of garlic powder and a tablespoon of butter is usually what I use. Feel free to adjust to your preference
What if you don't have a 12" cast iron skillet??? Anything else you could recommend to bake them in. Love all your recipes!!!
You can try them in a 9×13 pan or split the biscuits between 2 8-inch cake pans
Pure excitement when Plain Chicken and keto collide!!
Grams of carbs per biscuit???
You can plug the ingredients into this website to get nutritional information: https://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp
Approx 4.4 total or 3.3 net carbs in each biscuit when you make 16
Sure wish you and Chicken Legs would adopt the Keto eating style. I am certain your recipes would be the best Keto recipes ever!!
We will see how this recipe does and if people want more Keto. If so, I'll definitely start working on more Keto recipes.
i have made this several times its great! truly the best low carb biscuits there are. i want to try tweaking a little to make low carb cinnamon rolls or maybe chocolate cakes our of them. thanks so much for posting and keep them coming you literally have the best low carb recipes.
Interesting…..wonder what putting the bread in refrigerator does to it? Normally you put bread in a warm place to rise. When you scooped out the bread dough did you start in the middle or sides? Just curious how they got their shape.
not really understanding your question. I used a cookie scoop to scoop the dough into balls.
Putting the bread in the refrigerator firms it up a bit so it stays in biscuit form.
Just wondering if we could just melt the cream cheese and the Mozzarella cheese together in the microwave like we do for fathead dough ?
You can try it.
I would scoop the biscuits on the edge of the skillet first to give it structure and fill in the middle scoops last, 🙂
heck yea! keep those keto recipes coming 🙂
