Basil and Garlic Drop Biscuits (Low Carb and Dairy Free)

basil and garlic drop bisuits_9183_600

Every once in awhile I like to have a biscuit with dinner and I love to whip up these drop biscuits.  They are so easy to throw together and you can flavor them with whatever spices you enjoy.  It is also easy to make a sweet biscuit which is perfect for breakfast or dessert.  The possibilities are endless!  Today I wanted to share with you the variation I make all the time, the Basil and Garlic Drop Biscuits. The remind me of a mostly dairy free (the only dairy is in the optional garlic butter/ghee) Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  So delicious!  If you eat dairy, it wouldn’t hurt to throw some grass fed cheddar cheese in the mix before baking.  Your family will be delighted to see these yummy biscuits on your dinner table.

Enjoy!

    My husband tries hard to go low-carb. I think I’ll make these for him! Thanks for posting this!

    I tried these the other night. They were an absolute hit!! My kids were asking for more. DD asked for them for breakfast! BUT, I had a problem with consistency. I followed the recipe exactly, but ended up with a cake-like batter, rather than a dough I could drop onto a cookie sheet. And the end product looked more like a cookie than a biscuit or scone. Should I add more flour next time?

      Hmm…you might want to let the “dough” sit for 5 minutes to let the coconut flour absorb the liquid. IF that doesn’t work then adding a small amount of coconut flour (1-3 tsp) would probably help.
