I don’t often make many bread substitutes, but every once in a while I get a hankering for a treat. This gluten-free cheesy biscuits recipe came about at just such a time. They are made with coconut flour, which I find a bit tricky to work with, but have been trying to experiment with more lately so I can take advantage of the nutritional benefits of coconut.

One little cheesy biscuit at red lobster will cost you 17 grams of carbs, but only delivers 9 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein. That sounds like a nutritional recipe for disaster. That many carbs from one little biscuit will cause your blood glucose levels to spike and in turn cause fat storage.
My recipe for gluten-free cheesy biscuits, on the other hand, has only 3 grams of carbs (2 of which are fiber), 14.25 grams of fat, and 19.33 grams of protein. A much better ratio!

I hope you enjoy these as much as my family and I did. As you can see below, we even enjoyed these gluten-free cheesy biscuits the next day for breakfast. We placed 2 biscuits in the toaster and placed an over-medium egg and bacon in the middle. It was quite a treat and a breakfast I could feel good about serving!
