Why I made a low-carb biscuit with zucchini and cheese

Over the years I have lamented about how terrible I am at making homemade biscuits. My mom makes the best Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits out there. And, while I love them, I struggle when making them. Fortunately, when it comes to low-carb baking and biscuits, I have far better luck!

It is quite funny to me that I can bake cookies and bread but when it came to biscuits I fail. That is, until I switched to low-carb baking! I was so excited when I realized I wasn’t terrible at biscuit making when creating a low-carb biscuit!

How to make these biscuits

Making a low-carb biscuit is so easy! No more overworking the dough and getting a tough biscuit! It all starts with swapping out the white flour for almond and coconut flour. The rest is easy peasy!

I do use coconut flour in this recipe. I don’t really notice the coconut flavor, however other people claim they notice it. In all reality, even if I did notice it, I probably wouldn’t mind it as I love coconut. Having said that however, I do not taste any sweet coconut flavors in this biscuit myself.

I always add the cheese and zucchini to my flour mixture first. This way, the crumbs will cling to the shreds and keep them separated.

Next I melt the butter and whisk the eggs. Then, I will add the wet ingredients all at the same time to the dry mixture.

Why I use yogurt in this recipe

I like to use yogurt in this recipe for a few reasons. The first being, it is a good source of fat – as long as you are using whole milk yogurt. Some people tend to avoid yogurt on low-carb diets as it has a higher carb count. However, when baking with it, yogurt really doesn’t add a significant amount of carbs per serving to count.

Portioning the recipe

Once the dough is combined, it is time to start portioning it out to make the biscuits.

I always line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then I use a 1/4 cup sized cookie scoop to scoop the dough out into round shapes on the cookie sheet.

Once the biscuits are in the oven, they will bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until browned.

Adding the buttery garlic topping to the low-carb biscuits

While the low-carb biscuits are baking, the butter garlic topping can be made so it is ready to brush the top of the biscuits once they are removed from the oven.

I choose to use garlic powder, however, if you really want to use fresh garlic instead, feel free to sub a couple of minced garlic cloves in its place.

What to serve with Low-Carb Biscuits with Zucchini and Cheese

Some of the best foods to serve a biscuit alongside is a soup or stew. I love to serve it alongside this low-carb Pho Soup Recipe or an nice and hearty bowl of Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup!

If you made and enjoyed this recipe, please give it a star rating!

Note: The original recipe on this page was for a Chipotle Zucchini Cheddar Biscuit. It was not a low carb recipe. Over the years, I didn’t continue to make that biscuit because as I stated above, my biscuit making skills aren’t the best. Because I love low carb biscuits and do well baking these, I converted the recipe. The original recipe did use yogurt and I did keep that in the recipe. However, I removed the chipotle powder from the biscuit. If you wish to keep chipotle powder in the recipe, feel free to add 1/2 tsp to the dry mix.
