I can’t even remember the last dish I ordered at Red Lobster. But the biscuits? Those will live on in infamy.

This keto recipe for cheddar bay biscuits sprang to life when I had a craving for those Red Lobster biscuits one evening. With just a few low-carb pantry basics and a hefty dose of cheese, these little beauties were born.

Ingredients for keto-friendly cheddar bay biscuits

The flour swap is key here. Almond flour is the natural choice for making glutinous breads lower carb, and this one blends so seamlessly that you don’t get any nutty flavor. Please don’t try coconut flour here -- not only will the flavor taste terrible, but you’ll also get dry hockey pucks instead of moist and chewy bread.

Next, you need fats. Chilled butter (choose grass-fed!) gives these cheddar bay biscuits a more flakey texture, while heavy cream adds moisture and richer flavor, plus helps keep everything together.

To truly capture the cheddar bay biscuits flavor, this recipe also includes two glorious kinds of cheddar, garlic powder, and a touch of parsley for an herbaceous kick.

If you are an OG cheddar bay biscuit lover like me, you probably never hit up Red Lobster wondering about the nutritional breakdown on these rolls.

Reality check: Per serving, Red Lobster biscuits at the restaurant contain 16 carbs (and no fiber). If you make them at home using the boxed mix, you’re not doing yourself any favors, either: Not only does each biscuit run you 2 additional carbs, the mix contains artificial flavors from who-knows-where, soy protein, and hydrogenated oils -- and you have to add your own cheese anyway!

You may as well make a keto-friendly version of cheddar bay biscuits instead. These contain just over 3 net carbs per biscuit, plus a nice serving of fiber. You’ll know everything that goes into them and use high-quality ingredients instead.

Serving suggestions for cheddar bay biscuits

If you want a super cheesy dinner, serve these Red Lobster biscuits with broccoli mac and cheese. You’ll enjoy your whole meal for under 7 net carbs!

Cheddar bay biscuits also taste amazing as a bread substitute for a killer breakfast or otherwise savory sandwich (example here). They are soooo filling and flavorful.

It’s worth noting that these cheddar bay biscuits taste good cold, but they taste especially great warm. If you do find yourself with leftovers, these biscuits taste amazing fresh out the toaster oven.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, blend all dry ingredients. Add butter and crumble with a fork (or your hands, if they’re cold) until incorporated well into the dry mix.
  3. Add heavy cream in small amounts, mixing well between each addition. Stir eggs into the mixture. Mix white cheddar into the batter until it forms a doughy consistency, then gently add in yellow cheddar.
