Paleo Butter Biscuits (that melt in your mouth)

(Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Read more about them here.)

Soft, fluffy, flaky, with just a hint of crunch on the edges.

That, my friends, is a perfect biscuit.

Grain-free Butter Biscuits

And making a grain-free biscuit that meet all of those criteria is a ridiculous attempt and only those who are crazy should try.

I guess you could say that I am crazy.

I was dying for sausage egg biscuits this week, so I thought, why the heck not? Let’s make some grain-free butter biscuits.

Most of the “paleo” or grain-free recipes out there have coconut oil as the fat in the recipe, but I just don’t love the taste of coconut oil. So I substituted butter in here and they turned out perfect. Most of my recipes are dairy-free, but since butter doesn’t have the same effect on me that other dairy products do, I decided to make an exception this once.

Because BISCUITS.

Before I lose you Paleos, I made these same biscuits with olive oil and they didn’t get flaky, but they still tasted amazing, so hop on over to that recipe and make it instead.
