Hi there!  I wanna share with you a recipe that I'm DYING to try!  I thought that I'd forever have to give up stuff like bisquits, until whilst browsing in bed on my iPhone last night looking up LCHF recipes, I came across this one.  I got it from Get Fit Katie's Low Carb Blog.  You can visit it at that link to see the original recipe plus find any others that you think may be interesting.  I am going to post another one right after this, also taken from her blog.  I believe that we bloggers need to stick together and support each other.  How else are we gonna reach our goals right?  Anywho, the following is the recipe.  Can't wait till I get the coconut flour that I ordered from Bodystore.com (A Swedish online health food/supplement store).  It's not so cheap (165 SEK/kg = approx. 24 USD/kg) but whilst I'm trying to make the transition to LCHF and also enjoy the food, I'm willing to pay the extra.  Afterall, I am a food lover!

LCHF Buttery Garlic and Sharp Cheddar Biscuits
(Taken from Get Fit Katie's Blog)

  • ¼ cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/3 cup sifted Coconut Flour
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Line a cookie sheet with foil, and grease.
  3. Whisk together eggs, butter, salt, and garlic powder.
  4. Add coconut flour and baking powder and whisk until there are no lumps.
  5. Fold in cheese.
  6. Drop batter by the 2 oz scoop onto greased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. 
  8. Let cool in pan for 5-10 minutes before removing and serving.  Make sure that biscuits are completely cool before storage or they won't stay crisp!

LCHF Cheesy Garlic Biscuits
UPDATE: Made them!

These were pretty good.  I made them in a 12 cupcake tin.  I got 7 biscuits out of them.  I added a little bit more cheese on top to make them look cheesy.  There was a slight coconuty taste, but ever so slight.  That said, it may be because I didn't use sharp cheddar, but rather regular cheddar, so that may impact on the taste.

I also didn't take the advice of Katie and put them into cupcake forms prior to putting them into the tin.  I did butter them, one of the biscuits came out problem free but the rest had a bit left at the bottom.  So my opinion is to butter them even more liberally or use muffin cases.

I used 1/2 tsp of garlic powder instead of the 1/4.  It didn't seem to make a big difference, the garlic taste wasn't a major player.  I must say though that I will likely make these again, especially if we have guests over.
