Fluffy Biscuits – Low Carb | Induction Friendly | Sorta-Page 4 Friendly
Are you looking for a low carb biscuit or bread substitute? Healthy low carb keto-liciously delicious Southern Biscuits are only 7 minutes away—max! And although it sounds like an oxymoron, don’t you think a 2g Net Effective Carb biscuit would be awesome if they really existed? Fluffy Chix Cook will prove low carb, great tasting biscuits live!
I’m not joking when I tell you, that often, the difference between remaining faithful to my low carb squeeze, and completely falling apart, melting down, jaw tingling cheatin’, lyin’ and breakin’ up with the low carb keto lifestyle, is only a biscuit away. That’s right folks. It’s time you know. I’m a low carb slut.
And if I did not have my trusty, low carb crutch and companion—Fluffy Chix Low Carb | Induction Friendly, Dr. Westman’s Sorta-almost Page 4 Friendly, Fluffy Biscuit as my wingman? Well…Katie bar the door, cuz there would be shenanigans goin’ down in this Fluffy hen house. Swearsies.
And if you are not from Texas or the south and don’t “get” DFSW-speak, let me translate. I would cheat my fluffy as* off if I didn’t have these low carb keto, gluten free, grain free, and sugar free, salvation biscuits in the house! True story!
That’s about all I have to say on this one. Let’s cut to the chase and getchasome. Make ‘em. Bake ‘em. Take ‘em. Just eat ‘em. Preferably with a big ol’ fluffy Southern breakfast of bacon and eggs with biscuits, or Low Carb Bacon Gravy, or sausage gravy—coming soon to a blog near you! (Hint Hint: Fluffy Chix Cook.)
Sometimes the difference between low carb dietary compliance and falling off the wagon is as simple as a low carb Southern Biscuit—at least for this fluffy DFSW!
- 1/3 cup pork rind crumbss
- 1 tablespoon whole psyllium husks (NOW brand)
- 1 tablespoon whey protein isolate, unflavored (Designer Whey)—or 2 tablespoons shredded part skim mozzarella cheese for Westman's Page 4 Diet
- 1/2 teaspoon gluten free aluminum free baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons sour cream
- 1/4 cup egg whites—or carton egg whites
- 3-4 drops concentrated stevia drops
- 1 teaspoon unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tablespoon bacon grease—or butter, or unfiltered extra virgin olive oil
- Combine dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients (except bacon grease) into dry. Stir with a spoon or spatula until evenly mixed.
- Grease the bottoms and sides of two 4oz ramekins with bacon drippings. Divide batter. Nuke each ramekin separately. Microwave on high for 60-65 seconds. Remove and turn out of ramekin. Place right side up and cool. Serve soft from the microwave or split and toast biscuits in the toaster oven for a more biscuity texture.
This simple Low Carb Southern Biscuit recipe is so quick and easy to make. The shortcut is always making sure to have a bag or two of pork rinds made into crumbs, waiting to go. Process the skins into crumbs in the food processor. The measurements in recipes, for pork rind crumbs, are always--after processing into crumbs measurements! And you get a huge low carb biscuit for 2g of Net Effective Carbs (fiber grams subtracted from total carb count). If that's too high for you, these could easily make 3 smaller biscuits!
These Fluffy Biscuits are Atkins Induction friendly, but present a shade of gray if following Dr. Westman's Page 4 plan. Psyllium husks and protein powder are not included on Dr. W's Page 4, although Metamucil is included. So Fluffy Chix Cook loosely extrapolates that whole psyllium husks would be ok as a Page 4 ingredient. We're not concerned with using 1 teaspoon of protein powder (buy it in the bulk bin in tiny amounts) in a recipe.
But if you want to be completely compliant with Dr. Westman's Page 4--simply sub out 2 tablespoons of shredded part skim mozzarella cheese for the protein powder called for in the recipe. The protein powder (and shredded mozzarella cheese as a sub for protein powder) adds structure and volume to the biscuit batter.
