How Jen Saves:
Almond Flour – Honeyville.com or Amazon.com (sign up for Honeyville emails and they will send you a coupon!)

Cottage Cheese – this is definitely something you can coupon for! Check printable coupon sites in my “About” section and look for deals at your local grocery store!
*Tip on cottage cheese…99% of the time, if it’s not opened yet, it lasts months longer than the expiration date. 

Eggs – Sam’s Club (18ct)

Coconut Oil – I use Better Body Organic Coconut Extra Virgin Oil (USDA Organic, Cold-Pressed and Unrefined) 28oz it’s only $8.68 at Sam’s Club!

Butter – $2 per lb at Sam’s Club, but this is also something you can coupon for and watch weekly sales at grocery stores. These guys can be stored in the freezer for months on end.

Unsweetened Almond Milk – I use Silk and Almond Breeze brands. They go 2 for $5 at Publix and I find coupons for them either online or in the Sunday papers. They also have blinkie machines with coupons in stores sometimes near the product.

Cheddar Cheese – Sam’s Club has a huge bag of shredded cheddar that’s soooo much cheaper than buying it at a grocery store. I know it’s a lot of cheese, but if you’re a THMer like me, you will buy it and CONSUME it with no guilt! ;D You can also watch for BOGO (buy one get one free) deals at places like Publix or Winn Dixie or Kroger.

Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ Cup Blanched Honeyville Almond Flour
  • 3 tsp. Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp. Salt (ONLY if your cottage cheese is unsalted)
  • ¾ Cup Cottage Cheese (I use 1% fat)
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil (I like to use ⅓ Cup Melted Butter in place of coconut oil so they don't taste like coconut. You could also try half butter half coconut oil.)
  • ¼ Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • AT LEAST 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded 😉
  • .
  • ½ - 1 tsp. Garlic Powder (optional)
  • ½ - 1 tsp. Parsley (optional)
Instructions
  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, garlic powder, parsley and salt in large bowl and set aside. Mix the cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, eggs, oil/butter and milk in another large bowl. Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until moistened.
  2. Spray 12 nonstick muffin cups with nonstick spray (I use olive oil in a spritzer). Fill each muffin cup ⅔ full with batter.
  3. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown on top and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Leave biscuits in muffin tin until cooled, then gently use a knife around the edges and wedge out each biscuit.
Notes
*Muffins can be made ahead and reheated. You could also add chopped ham or slice in half and add chicken salad for a meal. If you want more garlic taste, melt some butter and add more garlic powder, brush on top of biscuits after baked.

      Hi Jennifer! (Great name;)) So I haven’t experimented with coconut flour in these particular biscuits…:( Most of the ingredients would definitely need to be adjusted because coconut flour sucks a lot of liquid. I just tried this recipe for Coconut Flour English Muffins this morning and they were pretty tasty! I put some sharp white cheddar cheese on top! You could probably add cheese in the “Muffin” as well before baking/microwaving it.

      Hi Lois! So honestly, I have not tried this recipe with ground almonds, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! It may be a little more “grainy” tasting, but you could give it a shot! Maybe only make half the recipe and see if you like them.

    This looks WONDERFUL! I am a newbie with THM, so I need to ask. I always get the unsweetened vanilla almond milk at Sam’s Club, so it would be a waste for me to buy a whole carton of unsweetened regular almond milk – I would never use it after that 1/2 cup. For the amount that is spread over the whole batch (only 1/4 cup) do you think I could fudge and just use whole milk or whipping cream instead?

    • Jen says:

      Hi Dena! Welcome to THM life! Yes! You can totally use 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream! Keep in mind though this will be adding lots more fat and there’s quite a bit already with the butter/coconut oil and cheese, that’s why I just use unsweetened regular almond milk. You could also do half and half to cut down on the fat as well. I don’t believe whole milk is THM recommended because of the milk sugars. Hope you enjoy!

    Thank you for the recipe, I am wanting to try it with your chicken pot pie recipe.
    I just have a question: With the cottage cheese in the biscuit recipe, can you taste cottage cheese chunks in it? Could I blend it smooth and then add that in the recipe?

    • Jen says:

      Hi Alisha! No need to blend, you won’t taste the cottage cheese at all! I think the cottage cheese ends up melting and so it blends well in the oven. Hope you enjoy!

      Hi! I’ve never used ricotta cheese in these biscuits but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work! Definitely give it a try! I interchange ricotta and cottage in my pancakes and they turn out just fine with either cheese. I use low fat ricotta and 1% cottage cheese. 🙂

    • Jen says:

      Oh no Shari! I’m so sorry to hear that your muffins were stuck. 🙁 I spray my muffin tin with lots of olive oil and they don’t stick. Maybe also wait a few minutes to cool slightly to let them set, then try scooping out. Also, for future biscuits, try just placing the dough on parchment paper on a pan! This is now my go-to way to make them! SO much easier than a muffin tin. See pictures here!

    I made these and LOVED them! Great job! Do you happen to have the carb, protein, fiber, fat content for them per serving? I need for Weight Watchers, if possible.

      Hi Connie, I apologize for the delay in my response! I don’t have them off hand, I’m sorry! I will post them when I get a chance.
