Simple Low-Carb Biscuits

These simple biscuits are a perfect accompaniment to soups and stews, or can become a light Southern breakfast with the addition of a rich sausage gravy. They can serve as the base for a few sweetened berries and a dollop of whipped cream (add 1 tsp. of Swerve sweetening to the dough), or are delicious eaten with a smear of handmade mayonnaise and a bit of ham. Add a basket of these next to a variety of cheeses and meats, and you have instant smorgasboard. And these even keep the net carb count to 1.9 grams per biscuit…brilliant!

Simple Biscuits
Yield: 9 biscuits

5 egg whites
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon softened butter (cut into pieces)

OPTIONS: add 1 tsp of garlic or your favorite herb.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease a muffin pan with cooking oil spray. (or use a silicone muffin pan)  Whip egg whites until very fluffy. In a separate medium bowl, mix the baking powder into the almond flour. Add the salt. Then, using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter. Gently fold the dry mixture into the egg whites.
