Cheese Biscuits

Low carb breakfast seems to be the most difficult meal of the day on lchf diet. Fry up is nice, but after a while I get bored of sausages and eggs. I came across these cheese biscuits on lowcarbfamily.com They are quite high in fat, so you  need one or maximum two to feel full for hours. There is also one more massive benefit. Apart from baking a big batch they make a super fast breakfast on the go. You grab one from the fridge and enjoy with your morning cup of tea or coffee.

Ingredients:
  • 150g/5 ounces ground almond
  • 100g/3.5 ounces cream cheese
  • 50g/2ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • 50g/2ounces butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  • Mix all dry ingredients (almonds, baking soda, salt) in a large bowl.
  • Add butter, cream cheese and the egg. Combine everything together and add cheddar cheese.
  • Portion batter. It’s really up to you what tray you want to use. It can be muffin tray or a mini loaves tin. I have mine from Lakeland. Bake for 20 -25 minutes. Taste nice both warm and cold.
Enjoy :)

  1. These look amazing! I'm new to carb counting and have been finding it hard to do low carb on 'treats' or generally anything I find yummy. When I saw the small amount of carbs in these I couldn't believe my luck! I'll be making these very soon and will let you know how I get on. Loving your blog so far... off I go to do some more recipe searching on here. Thank you!

  2. Hi, I am a complete baking novice and saw your cheese biscuits through a post on the Diabetes.co.uk. Sorry for the stupid question, but as they are biscuits should they be crunchy all the way through? I have just taken them out of the oven and they are quite spongy inside. Thanks.

    1. Hi :) No, they are not crunchy. The texture is similar to a muffin. I don't know why I called them biscuits!

  3. Thanks Ewelina, you've made a T1 5 year old so happy. She used to love baking cheese scones up until she was diagnosed. Made these with her today and she loved it.
