Low Carb/Keto Garlic Cheddar Bay Biscuit Recipe

Homemade biscuits from scratch? Who wouldn’t want that?

I’ve been thinking about how easy it would be to change up my low carb Keto Biscuit recipe to make a low carb copycat version. This version is a take on the popular chain restaurant, Red Lobster’s, Cheddar Bay Garlic Biscuits everyone goes crazy over. All I did was add in some garlic, the right seasonings, some more sharp shredded cheddar cheese and boom, Red Lobster’s copycat biscuits comin’ at ya!

I love to make these in larger batches and freeze them for a last minute dinner side dish that is easy to reheat!

Cheddar Bay Biscuit Ingredients:

  • Butter, eggs, sour cream– Forms the base of your dough while adding fat and protein to your biscuits.
  • Coconut flour- I use coconut flour in my keto recipes because of allergies in the family but you can use almond flour if you need. Just quadruple the amount.
  • Baking Powder- This is the leavening agent that allows your biscuits to rise.
  • Garlic- Freshly minced garlic cloves are a must for a super garlicky biscuit!
  • Cheddar Cheese- Freshly grated cheddar cheese makes a difference! Get the best you can find for the best flavor!

Steps to make these keto copycat Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease your muffin pan.

How to store your keto garlic cheddar bay biscuits

While I love cooking, it is always nice to have something fast and easy on hand when it comes to any meal. Prepping these garlic cheddar biscuits ahead of time makes dinner even easier to manage and so much more enjoyable! You can store them in the fridge for a few days sealed well however I love to freeze them in large batches!

I can just grab a few out of the freezer, heat them up, and serve alongside our keto dinner.

Here are my biscuit freezing tips:

  • Make double batches! Then make sure you allow them to cool completely! If not, your delicious homemade biscuits may get freezer burn. Not tasty.
  • Use freezer storage bags and double bag them to keep your cheesy biscuits fresher, longer.

Keto cheddar bay biscuit tips:

This biscuit recipe is very simple and hard to mess up. However there are some tips you can follow to make sure they turn out extra delicious and super tasty!

  • Finishing your biscuits by brushing them with butter and fresh parsley go a long way with flavor
  • Toast your cheddar biscuits and serve with a dab of butter for added flavor and texture
  • Substitute almond flour for the coconut flour if you wish. The substitute is 4x the amount of coconut flour.
  • Use muffin/cupcake liners in your tins to help remove them easily.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease muffin pan.
  • Combine melted butter (I cool mine by popping the bowl in the fridge for 5 min), eggs, salt, and sour cream then whisk together.
  • Add coconut flour, baking powder, garlic cloves, and Italian seasoning to the mixture and stir until combined.
  • Stir in cheese.
  • Drop batter by spoonfuls into 12 greased muffin tins. **I would suggest using parchment paper liners to keep the batter from sticking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until tops are slightly brown.
  • Top with fresh parsley and a little melted butter if desired.



-Toast your biscuits prior to mealtime and add a bit of extra butter for more flavor and a better texture!
-If you wish to use almond flour, you will want to use 4 times the amount of coconut flour. This comes out to about 1.2 cups. To make it easy, simply measure out 1/3 cup flour four times.

    Hi kasey, I’ve made these biscuits before and I absolutely love them. I wanted to make them today but I’m out of baking powder is there anything I can use instead to make them rise?

    1. Thanks so much for your kind feedback. I’ve only tried to make them as is so I’m not sure.

  2. 5 stars
    So delicious. I think these are better than regular biscuits! I’ve started using coconut flour for muffins to and it tasted so good and low carb!

    Hi Kasey:
    I love these but did something different to make less cleanup and easier. Once mixed I rolled into a ball (muffin size) and placed them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. They turned out fantastic and didn’t need muffin papers or muffin tin.

  4. Could I use almond flour as a substitute and if so how much would I use? Thanks in advance for your help, keep the recipes coming!
