Seriously, guys– these tasty biscuits pack a ton of flavor. Feel free to dip them in more marinara or just enjoy them as is. They make the perfect snack and the whole family will love them. Oh, and did I mention they have just 2g net carbs apiece?
If you prefer, you can roll the dough out into a sheet between plastic wrap sheet until it’s about 3/4 inch thick and use a circle biscuit cutter to get a more refined look. Me? I just flattened little balls of dough by hand. Easy peasy.

Eating healthy, for me, is about more than weight loss like it used to be. It’s about controlling my blood sugar levels and obtaining normal–or relatively normal–hormone levels. I still struggle to lose weight efficiently, but eating a wheat, sugar and gluten free diet helps to control some of the problems I’ve encountered with these health issues of mine.
