Easy Keto Biscuits and Gravy

Get ready to experience ketogenic breakfast bliss. This Easy Keto Biscuits and Gravy recipe is an amazing way to start your day with a southern feel!


Best served piping hot, this recipe is AMAZING, y’all. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to include on the blog for a long time, but didn’t want to bring to you until it was perfect.

Growing up in southern Missouri, SPRINGFIELD STAND UP, biscuits and gravy was everywhere. I think it’s fair to say it’s something that’s often on the breakfast table.

Funny story, though…when Joe and I met, him being from Minnesota, he had never even HEARD of biscuits and gravy. We went to a midnight breakfast in college and he stared at the vats with a “What the heck is that?” look on his face.

Shortly after he fell in love with me, he fell in love with biscuits and gravy…. Actually, come to think of it, I’m not sure which came first!

Anyway, before I started keto, I had a fantastic recipe for this stuff that I made pretty frequently. Unfortunately, like my of my diet at the time…it was LOADED with carbs.

One of the best low carb feelings for me is the understanding that all of those extra carbs from yesteryear were completely and totally unnecessary.

And this recipe is easier, quicker, and even more delicious!

3 cups finely ground almond flour

1 tablespoon baking powder (yes, a tablespoon)

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons butter, softened

2 eggs

Breakfast Sausage Gravy

1 pound ground breakfast sausage

2 tablespoons butter

2 ounces cream cheese

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (to thicken)

1/2 teaspoon pepper



Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In large bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Add butter and eggs and continue mixing until fully combined.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment. Separate dough into 10 balls and gently roll into slightly flattened discs.

Place on sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes until beginning to brown.

Let cool completely or they will fall apart.


In skillet over medium heat, brown sausage until no pink remains.

Add butter to skillet. Break cream cheese into pieces and place into skillet. Mix until cream cheese is fully melted. 2-3 minutes.

Pour heavy cream and broth into pan. Sprinkle in xanthan gum and pepper and stir.

Heat to a low boil the turn off heat, continue to stir. This will allow xanthan gum time to thicken. Serve warm over biscuits.




Xanthan Gum can be found in the baking aisle of your local grocery store. Individual packets are usually less than $1 each.

You can make these biscuits with coconut flour, but I have not tried it and do not know the correct amounts.

Made it exactly as-is and it was great! Not sure why people left out the garlic powder; I didn't really notice it in the biscuits.

Holy (bleeeeep)...this was beyond good! Not a spec left on anyone’s plate; not even my non-keto eating kids (11&13). Ya’ll, the biscuits are like grandma made them. The sausage gravy is pretty general tasting (don’t add up extra salt or it kills the taste). I never made this before so I followed the recipe closely - accept for the additional salt (sausage was salty enough). I served sunny side up eggs along side and everyone was wowed. This was pretty simple to make/bake so I’ll definitely be making this again. Oh, and there’s even leftovers for tomorrow morning! Winner!
