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.
