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

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).

    Can you substitute a ‘flax’ egg for the regular egg and still get decent results?

    Another great recipe from you. Plus it includes my favorite food of all time: BACON!! Today’s a Big Cookup Day and I’ll be adding this to the list. I thank you, my partner thanks you, and my mates at my Crossfit box will be thanking you.

    Hi darlin’!
    Have turned a lot of people on to your blog and recipes! Some with Candida, others with Hashimoto, and more. But I have a challenge. A friend gave me fresh pitted cherries from her trees and I put them in the freezer as I don’t have a grain free recipe for them. Afriad to just substitute or add to something due to the moisture content. My hubby is diabetic and grains interfere with his insulin receptors. Any recipes or suggestions??
    Thanks and blessings!

    Hi. . . I was just wondering if I’m missing a “print” button or if there’s none there?

    I’d love to try, but allergic to almonds (in addition to wheat.) any other substitute flour?

      I have tried using pecan meal in place of almond flour in some of her recipes and it works. If it is not fine enough I run it through the food processor, just be sure not to run it long enough to make pecan butter. I am also allergic to almonds. Haven’t tried this one though.

    You are so very awesome. I love your blogs, and my daughter and I are going to start working our way through your gorgeous recipes as soon as we’re done with our cleanse (

    Thanks so much for sharing on Facebook so we could find our way here!! <3

    Hey there, just wondering if potato starch is paleo?

  9. Diana

    These sound and look amazing. Sadly I’m living a low carb way of eating and I don’t think I can have potato or tapioca starch. Any other suggestions to replace that item?

  10. Rose

    When you say potato starch what exactly are you referring to? The water from boiled potatoes?

    Do you buy your almond or mill your own? It can be exspensive

    Hi , Love the looks and sounds of this one! sounds like it would be good as a breakfast on the go. or for a snack any time. Thanks, for sharing & all you do.

  13. Megan

    Would this recipe work with solid coconut oil instead of butter?

  14. diane

    these babies are a huge hit at my house!

    Made these for dinner tonight. I used bacon lard since I had a whole jar I had been collecting. These are amazing. My husband could not believe they were paleo. Like I was lying to him or something. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

  16. Theresa

    But what about those of us with nut allergies? There’s never a straightforward substitute for almond flour and it will send me to the hospital.
