Keto & Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread (grain-free, paleo, dairy-free + nut-free)

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #ketoA low-carb, keto biscuit recipe made with coconut flour. The only grain-free and keto biscuit recipe on the interwebs that’s also nut-free and dairy-free. Perfect for a keto Thanksgiving! This paleo-friendly and keto recipe makes good keto bread, too.

Remember when I discovered that supplementing with hydrochloric acid cured acne? It was all the rage this summer. Turns out, the reason why it worked for so many of us, is that we all (well, most of us) have low stomach acid.

Low stomach acid is a silent problem. I didn’t know I had it. And, contrary to popular belief, acid reflux and heartburn doesn’t mean you have too much acid. In many cases, it’s that you don’t have enough. When we don’t have enough acid in our stomachs to break down the food we’re eating, undigested particles pass through the gut, and cause acne!

So, okay. Now, most of us are supplementing with hydrochloric acid to fix acne. A step beyond that is making it so that our body creates acids, all on its own… and HEALS itself from all the damage that’s been caused by not having the proper amount of acid secretion.

This is where keto-friendly grass-fed gelatin comes in.

Wait, don’t leave me! I know what you’re thinking – ew, gelatin! I thought that, too. But I got over it when I learned just how powerful this stuff is. In fact, it’s so powerful (and awesomely keto) that many of my vegan and vegetarian SPARK clients take it as a daily supplement.

5 reasons why I love grass-fed gelatin

For digestive awesomeness. Enhances gastric acid secretion and restores a healthy mucosal lining in the stomach – aka FIXING low stomach acid (and acne!)

For skin health. Think – killing cellulite, reducing wrinkles, banishing stretch marks…

For healthy muscles. It’s pure, keto-approved protein, providing a rich source of easily assimilated amino acids.

For reduced inflammation. Keeps joints inflammation, free. Meaning you can push harder at the gym and maximize performance!

For calmness and restful sleep. It’s an inhibitory neurotransmitter, meaning it promotes a calm, restful environment for your little (busy) mind.

What does this have to do with biscuits?

Everything. Because, instead of using digestive-harming gums (like xanthum gum and others) to hold these keto biscuits together, I used gelatin.

If you’re really dead-set against using keto-approved grass-fed gelatin in these paleo, grain-free, and keto biscuits, I’ve included a couple of suggestions in the “notes” section of this keto recipe.

A paleo, low-carb, keto, nut-free biscuit recipe made with coconut flour. Held together with grass-fed gelatin to benefit the digestive system.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Place the eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer fitting with the whisk attachment, in a mixing bowl (for use with an electric hand mixer), or in the jug of a blender. Whisk or blend on medium speed for 2 minutes, until frothy.
  3. Add the coconut milk, gelatin, melted coconut oil, vinegar, and coconut nectar to the eggs and blend on high, until smooth, about 20 seconds. Then add the coconut flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl or blender jar and mix until just combined.
  4. Using a ¼ cup measure, scoop up some of the dough and drop it onto the baking sheet.
  5. Repeat, until 12 biscuits are made, placing the biscuits about 1-inch apart.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tops begin to brown.
  7. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the biscuits to cool completely on the baking sheet, at least 2 hours.
  8. Variation: Keto Coconut Four Bread. To make, preheat the oven to 350°F and oil an 8 by 4-inch loaf pan with a dab of coconut oil. Make the bread dough, following Steps 2 and 3 above, then spread the dough out evenly in the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for at least 2 hours before serving.
Coconut Nectar: Is used to allow the biscuits to puff up! You could use yacon syrup, if interested.
Grass-Fed Gelatin: If you do not wish to use gelatin in this recipe, you could try for an equal amount of ground flax seed.
Baking Soda: I used a gluten-free baking soda that requires 2x the amount of baking soda to work properly. If you use regular baking soda, be sure to reduce the amount by half. In this case, it would be ½ teaspoon for the full recipe.

This is a one-bowl keto recipe. My favorite! I used keto-friendly full-fat coconut milk in this recipe because fat is best. I suppose you could use another form of keto dairy-free milk. Even homemade keto coconut milk may be nice!

Sifting the coconut flour after it’s measured will make your life a lot easier. It removes all the clumps.

Spread the keto mixture into a loaf pan, or use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop the keto dough and plop onto a baking sheet. If you make a loaf of bread, it would be great as grain-free, keto breadcrumb for grain-free, keto stuffing.

The grass-fed gelatin does a fabulous job holding everything together. The trick is, you have to let the biscuits (or bread) cool completely before judging. Once cooled, the bread holds together like every other bread out there… but doesn’t contain yucky binders, or gluten!

  1. Just made these–mmm-mm delicious! I made a double batch (only one can of coconut milk worked fine for that, just replaced the remaining fluid with water, and used 7 eggs) and divided them into four flavors: plain, garlic rosemary, lemon thyme, and lemon ginger (the latter stevia-sweetened). All absolutely wonderful. My only question is, how should they be stored? With the gelatin does that mean they should be kept cold? I left them out overnight and am now worried that they’ll go bad.
    Thank you so much for these! :)

    • Wooo! So glad you liked them :) Those flavors all sound amazing! You can keep them on the counter for a few days but they’ll keep longer in the fridge.

  2. Is this the gelatin that gets thick or the one that dissolves in hot or cold water.. I am confused – thank you Leanne

    • This is the one that gets thick and only dissolves in hot liquid. It works as a binder in this recipe, so you could replace it with an equal amount of ground flax seed if you don’t have any gelatin on hand!

  3. She’s using a baking soda substitute by Ener-G that is gluten free. See the hyperlink for more info.

    • Hmm, I haven’t tried that so I’m not sure how it’ll turn out. Let us know how it goes if you try it, though!

  4. gluten-free baking soda is a redundancy; baking soda is naturally gluten-free. There is potential with baking POWDER not being gluten-free due to cross-contamination, but even then, baking powder is gluten-free…
    Calling baking soda gluten-free is also called jumping on the bandwagon. Just saying.
    Good recipe though.

    • Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’m so used to writing gluten-free baking powder so it must have slipped.

  5. Hi Leanne made this recipe tonight . They came out a bit too grainy like the baking Soda taste. I think next time I will mix coconut flour , baking Soda and salt seperately before adding to mixture . Didn’t get as much lift as I was expecting also .

    • Oh no, so sorry for that. Did you use the same baking soda substitute that it calls for? If you used regular baking soda instead, you’ll need to use half the amount called for. This could be why it tasted too much like baking soda :/ Also, make sure to add in coconut nectar or yacon syrup as they really help the biscuits puff up!
