Paleo Maple Bacon Biscuits. (Gluten/Dairy/Grain Free)

Without hesitation I can say that biscuits are my #1 favorite food..and well Bacon- I'd say it speaks for itself. Throw in some maple syrup which always makes bacon taste even better and you've got yourself some killer biscuits.

These babies are the perfect salty & sweet breakfast or brunch. Good luck not eating too many!


Paleo Maple Bacon Biscuits.


  • 2 packed cup blanched almond flour.
  • 1 cup potato starch (tapioca starch will work too but the results wont be quite as spectacular).
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder (I use double acting)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon butter (dairy or nondairy) or shortening or bacon lard for extra bacon flavor.
  • 5 crispy strips of bacon, chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Whisk together the almond flour, potato starch, salt, baking powder, and bacon. Cut in the butter to pea-sized pieces.
  3. Whisk together the egg, maple syrup, and lemon juice in a separate bowl and stir into the dry mix.
  4. Place dough on the counter, cutting board, or sheet of parchment paper and pat down until it is an inch thick.
  5. Lightly dust with additional almond and potato flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  6. Cut dough into six 3-inch wide biscuits and bake for 25 minutes
  7. Optional: Make a glaze by mixing together maple syrup and powdered sugar and drizzle on top!


You can make your own healthier powdered sugar by throwing the granulated sugar of choice into a coffee grinder and whizzing until powdery. (This recipe would taste great with homemade coconut palm sugar mixed with maple syrup for the icing).
