How about a pan of these delicious hearty biscuits for breakfast in the morning? They are tasty, very light and are not at all crumbly like so many low-carb bisctuits turn out. Better yet, they are very simple to make! This is certainly a breakfast treat suitable for Atkins Induction or other Keto diets if the numbers will fit into your daily menu limits.
3/4 c. whey protein, unflavored, unsweetened
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
4 oz. pork breakfast sausage, cooked
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1½ tsp. coconut flour
1 T. almond flour
1 T. oat fiber (for gluten-free biscuits, omit or substitute 1 T. certified gluten-free oat flour)
Pinch garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
¼ c. melted butter, unsalted
3 T. cream
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Brown sausage in non-stick skillet, crumbling it up well. Melt butter in mixing bowl in microwave. Add cream and beaten egg. Add sausage and cheese and stir. Measure out all dry ingredients on top and stir all together just until ingredients are well mixed. Using a 2T. measuring cup, scoop out rounded scoops (about ¼ c.) into 8 greased muffin cups (I use a silicon muffin pan). If any batter is left in the bowl, top each off equally with the remaining batter. I used a square muffin pan and this amount of batter made eight that rose nearly double, but did not mound very high, as you can see in the pic. Bake at 350º for about 12-15 minutes, but check at 10 minutes as ovens vary.
