Tender almond flour biscuits with cheese, bacon, and tangy ranch seasoning. Keto biscuits never tasted this good!
Sometimes there is simply nothing better than a tender, buttery biscuit. Warm from the oven, smeared with even more butter, melting in your mouth. Or dipped into your favorite soup or chili recipe.
It’s pure comfort food, and since comfort food season is upon us once again, I thought it was time for a new and delicious keto almond flour biscuit recipe. This time, it’s one with a little twist.
I’ve made any number of keto biscuits in my day and one of my most popular is my Cheesy Keto Drop Biscuits. But this recipe is more of a true biscuit, with chilled butter cut into the dough.
But a little bit of bacon and some ranch seasoning don’t hurt either!
Keto Friendly Ranch Seasoning
I met so many amazing people when I was at KetoCon in June, and so many of them are true entrepreneurs. It’s a tough market out there, with everyone and their dog jumping on the keto train and trying to get a piece of the action.
I got taking to Cory Conklin, who founded Select Savory Seasonings. Cory is someone who found health and weight loss through keto, but as a devoted griller and smoker, was frustrated by the lack of sugar-free spice blends and rubs.
So of course, he started blending his own. After chatting for a while, he sweetly gifted me a bottle of his Memphis Style BBQ Rub and his Ranch’tastic seasoning.
I used the BBQ Rub all summer long and it’s fabulous. And that healthy, keto-friendly Ranch seasoning became the inspiration for this new keto biscuit recipe!
How to make Bacon Cheddar Ranch Biscuits
The flours: This is an almond flour based recipe, although I did include some coconut flour for texture. If you prefer, you can replace the coconut flour with another 3/4 cup of almond flour.
Adding the butter: In this biscuit recipe, I opted for the traditional approach of cutting the butter into the mixture to give it a more tender, flaky texture. But as the flours lack gluten, it still requires an egg to help hold the biscuits together. And a little cream makes them extra rich and melt in your mouth.
The flavorings: You could simply make these as a basic biscuit. But I had this delicious combination in my head so I added shredded cheddar, crumbled bacon, and of course, the ranch seasoning.
About that ranch seasoning: Nothing junky in this one! Just parsley, dill, garlic, onion, salt, and pepper. No fillers, no MSF, nothing icky to keep you up at night. The Ranch’tastic from Select Savory Seasonings is truly keto friendly. But of course, you can make your own if you prefer (see the recipe notes).
Brush with melted butter: And for some extra deliciousness, I brushed the baked biscuits with melted butter and sprinkled with at bit more ranch seasoning. So good!

Keto Bacon Cheddar Ranch Biscuits
- 1 1/4 cups almond flour
- 4 ounces grated Cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup butter chilled and cut into small pieces
- 1 large egg
- 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
- 2 1/2 tbsp ranch seasoning, divided (see recipe notes)
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Preheat the oven to 325F and line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Lightly grease the mat or paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cheese, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the chilled butter and cut in with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Stir in the egg and the cream until the dough comes together. Add the crumbled bacon and 2 tablespoons of the ranch seasoning and stir to combine well.
- Shape the dough into 10 even balls and place a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. The dough may be a little sticky so use lightly greased hands to shape it. Alternatively you can drop the dough by large spoonfuls onto the prepared sheet.
- Bake 18 to 23 minutes, until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Remove and let cool on the pan.
- Whisk together the melted butter and brush over the biscuits, then sprinkle with the remaining ranch seasoning, just before serving.
