Who misses biscuits? That has been one of my most missed things since being dx’d as a diabetic. I have tried the Golden Flax (mild, wacky flavor), Coconut Flour (too cakey), and Almond Flour (too nutty) and have not had any luck at finding a low carb biscuit that has the taste and fluffiness that I had come to love. I used to use Bisquick a lot and loved the consistency. But using it caused one biscuit to be 28 carbs. Just one….
Through some experimentation, I have created an awesome recipe that uses 1/2 bisquick, 1/2 Almond flour, eggs and heavy whipping cream. By subbing the Almond Flour and HWC instead of regular milk and regular flour, I have reduced the carb load per biscuit to around 11 grams. This biscuit is crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and has a flavor and consistency of what us biscuit lovers look for.
2 Cups of Bisquick
2 Cups of Almond Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
4 Large Eggs
1/3 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
Dry – Add almond flour and baking powder into a medium size bowl. Mix up very well so that the baking powder is integrated into the almond flour. Then add the bisquick and mix all together very well.
Wet – Add 4 complete eggs into a medium bowl and using a mixer eat the eggs until they have tripled in size, then add the heavy whipping cream and continue to beat the mixture until they are very frothy. This adds air into the biscuits and helps them to be light and fluffy inside.
Combine the wet and the dry mix well together. Add a slight amount of bisquick to give the dough the correct consistency.
Cover for 20 minutes and let the dough rest.
At about 5 minutes before the time is up, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Pat out the raised dough and using a biscuit cutter, press straight down when making the biscuit. Twisting the tool will not correctly seal the biscuit properly so it will fluff up as it should.
We use a baking stone as it seems to work well and cook very evenly. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Slap some butter on and enjoy! We have found that the slight nuttiness combined with that good bread taste is very hard to beat. These are a treat for diabetic and non diabetic alike. Enjoy!
Right at 11 grams of carbs per biscuit!!
