Print this recipe
Folks on a low-carb diet might think that biscuits are off-limits, but this is far from the case! To make these mouth-watering biscuits, you combine almond flour, cheese and an egg. Roasted jalapenos give a nice little kick of spice.
These biscuits are the perfect side to your favorite soup or chili recipe, and they're also delicious just on their own. Once you've mastered the base recipe, you can also change them up by adding your favorite herbs or even other vegetables to the mix. Try bacon and cheddar or red bell pepper and olive for a Provençal flair.

1 teaspoon lard or butter
6 jalapenos, seeds and membranes removed, minced
2 green onions, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Set the vegetables aside to cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour and baking powder. Add the butter, then use your fingers to work it into the flour until the mixture has a sandy texture.
Add the egg and the heavy cream, using a rubber spatula to bring the mixture together.
Add the cheddar cheese and cooked vegetables; fold until well- combined.
