Cream cheese delivers a wonderful texture and flavor to these Cream Cheese Biscuits.
Coconut flour makes sure they’ll be low in carbs and gluten-free as well.
Cream cheese is a staple of keto recipes but beware of industrial processors adding sugar to make the taste more palatable.
Check the carb content before purchase.
Pasteurized milk is the main ingredient in cream cheese, which makes it safe to eat without any additional processing.
Coconut flour is gotten through coconut milk-making.
Basically, no part of coconut’s pulp is thrown away, so once producers squeeze out coconut milk, coconut pulp is dried and ground into a powder that goes on to become coconut flour.
Since it’s all coconut, coconut flour shares plenty of the same health benefits as coconut oil.
A quarter cup full of coconut flour has about 6g of net carbs.
It’s quite a bit towards your daily carb limit but that’s all these recipe needs.
For example, a whole batch of cookies baked using only a 1/4 cup of coconut flour, each of those cookies will have merely 0.5g of net carbs — that’s a pretty good tradeoff for something that gives you that sweet jolt once in a while.
Soft and chewy, these Cream Cheese Cookies tend to get firm after being stored in the fridge for a day.
