Cheesy Cauliflower Biscuits Recipe that is low carb and gluten free. These are not real biscuits but they taste pretty good.

Cauliflower biscuits garnished with green onions and served on a plate.

I am on a cauliflower kick this week. Thai cauliflower rice, cheesy cauliflower rice and cauliflower biscuits.

I just want to clarify something. I’m fully aware that these are not real biscuits. And so isn’t cauliflower pizza crust recipe really a pizza and cauliflower breadsticks aren’t actual breadsticks.

They don’t have a light airy fluffy texture but rather more of vegetable muffins or big cauliflower tots. They did resemble biscuits in a sense though and we all loved them. It was a nice change in our so beaten up menu.

I wouldn’t make them often or wouldn’t call them super healthy because they contain a fair amount of cheese and eggs.

How to Make Cauliflower Biscuits

I bought this cauliflower at the farmer’s market. It had a purple undertone to it, which was invisible after processing. Separate into florets.

Rice cauliflower in a food processor.

In a food processor, add cauliflower in batches and process until fine crumbs. Smaller than in my photos, it will produce softer and fluffier cauliflower biscuits. In the last batch, add garlic.

Saute cauliflower rice for 5 – 7 minutes or until a bit golden.

Divide mixture evenly among openings of a muffin tin and top with remaining 3 tbsp cheese. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool. That’s it for this healthy side dish!

  • In a food processor, add cauliflower in batches and process until fine crumbs. Smaller than in my photos. In the last batch, add garlic. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Preheat non-stick skillet on medium – high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add cauliflower and cook for 5 – 7 minutes or until a bit golden, stirring frequently and watching closely not to burn.
  • In the meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Add cornstarch and whisk until dissolved. Add pre-cooked cauliflower along with cheese (except 3 tbsp), salt, pepper and green onions; mix well.
  • Line muffin tin with liners or use silicone muffin tin sprayed with cooking spray. Divide mixture evenly among openings and top with remaining 3 tbsp cheese. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool a bit and serve hot or cold (I like).


  • Store: Keep refrigerated in a glass airtight container for up to 5 days.

    Not “biscuits” but a very tasty side dish to go with dinner. I used 1 frozen bag of riced caulifower and halved everything else in the recipe. I used cupcake liners since I don’t have silicone and they stuck to the liner! It was quite a challenge to eat them! Next time I thought I would spray cooking spray in the liners before filling them. Do you think that will solve the problem? There Will be a “next time.” I would give this recipe a 5 for flavor, but gave it a 4 since they stuck so bad. (Too much cheese?)

    One my husbands favourite – Fried chicken gizzards with onion and garlic and then simmer with whipping cream. Sometimes I add mushrooms.

    1. Chewy outside or inside too? Did they hold together? If too chewy overall might be too long of a cooking time. Ovens vary.

        1. Mine were crispy on the edges and top and soft and moist inside. Did you follow exact measurements and ingredients? Chewy inside biscuits could be only of too much cheese or too long baking time. Seems like they dried out inside. Something is off. Any substitutes you did?

  3. I am part way through reading your column, haven’t even gotten to the cauliflower recipe, and I am just…well, angry and saddened that someone would criticize a recipe that works (the so-called inferior chicken). I’m sorry.

    Not sure if anyone else has answered it, but the brown spots are simply oxidation, the way a cut apple will brown if left uncovered. Not mold. And I’m with you – I can’t eat mold either. Not even the expensive brie kind, lol.

    1. Hi Lari. Oh, that is what those are. Sadly, many people eat only certain part of chicken. We eat everything. We even ate chicken livers fried with lots of onions last week. Different but we grew up on it. My kids of course wouldn’t touch it. They would eat any other part of chicken though but liver of any kind is to extreme for them.

  4. Hi Olena! I just discovered your site and can’t wait to try this awesome recipe. I beg to differ that these are fake but instead substitutes or HEALTHY CHOICES for us in this UNHEALTHY world we live in now days! I am sooooooooo very grateful to you and appreciate you for sharing such tips and recipes for me to try and have access too and if some others don’t care to do so that’s their prerogative but only shows their stupidity if they are making ignorant remarks to you etc so hold your head high dear one and be proud of all the people who you share with and help!!
    We started eating like this and today got our blood panel results and cholesterol way down and good…sugars down and best ever etc etc so take that you silly Rude folks!
    Blessed to have found you! Kathy

    1. Hi Kathleen. Wow, good for you! That is so great to hear!
      Well, unfortunately I have to agree with you. I try not to be judgemental and rude but stupidity of people amazes me! People who know they should eat better (come on, everyone knows that) but ignore it and choose not to because just…lazy to be honest. It drives me nuts how ignorant people are and make funny remarks about healthy eating and keep eating crap. It drives me nuts that they make a burden on our healthcare system for which we have to pay. Pure ignorance, I agree! Eating healthy and being healthy is a privilege that people should wear proudly in today’s world. And we do! I do! Let me know if you make any recipe.:)
