These Cheesy Cauliflower ‘Biscuits’ Are The Perfect Keto Snack
Oh wow these sound SO good.
But while going keto may give you dramatic results, following the diet can be challenging. It’s not easy to shun breads, muffins and other carb-heavy fare, but there are so many keto recipes that can help you stay away from carbs while still enjoying your favorite foods.
Gimme Delicious’ cheesy cauliflower “biscuits” are the perfect substitute whenever you find yourself craving rolls or biscuits. With just three main ingredients plus some spices, you can make yourself a hearty, flavorful treat that will go perfectly with dinner, lunch or simply as a snack.
You can make these biscuits with either frozen or fresh cauliflower florets. You then pulse the cauliflower in a food processor, then add cheese, egg, herbs, salt and pepper to the mixture. Press the cheesy cauliflower mixture into a muffin tin and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Or, try this variation for cheesy cauliflower breadsticks from Jo Cooks. Jo uses a similar list of ingredients — a combo of cauliflower, cheese and eggs, plus garlic — but rather than bake the biscuits in a muffin tin, she spreads her cauliflower batter on a baking pan and makes “breadsticks.”
You can also use this recipe to make pizza crust. Or why not both! What’s better than pizza and breadsticks, especially when they are low-carb and guilt-free? Serve with a keto-friendly marinara sauce such as Rao’s, or make your own, such as with this recipe from My Keto Kitchen.
Or consider this variation for cauliflower biscuits from Delighted Momma. If you are dairy-free, this recipe is perfect for you, as it is made with nutritional yeast instead of cheese. She also adds almond meal to help give it a more bread-like texture, but these “biscuits” still only have 4 net carbs per serving.
Spread some butter on the biscuits to make the perfect dinner side, or have them in the a.m. with your morning omelet. Yum!
With snacks like these, you certainly won’t miss the bread!
