Net Carbs
Prep Time: 25 Minutes
Style: American
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Phase: Phase 2









How are Net Carbs Calculated?


  • 1.5 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 0.75 tsp Salt
  • 1 individual packet Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 0.5 cup Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 6 serving All Purpose Low-Carb Baking Mix
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream


Use the Atkins recipe to make All Purpose Low-Carb Baking Mix for this recipe.
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F degrees.
  2. Blend together 2 cups low-carb baking mix, baking powder, sugar substitute and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Cut butter into small chunks and add to the dry ingredients, using a pastry blender or your fingertips to work until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Do not over-mix.
  4. Pour in heavy cream and stir lightly. 
  5. Coat cutting board with olive oil spray. Using a spatula, transfer the dough to a cutting board. Coat hands with oil spray and lightly knead dough a few times until blended. Do not over knead.
  6. Pat out dough into a circle 1/2 3/4-inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter with a 2¼-inch diameter, form biscuits. Make an extra biscuit out of scraps instead of re-rolling the dough.
  7. Place biscuits on a baking sheet coated with oil spray. Brush tops with melted butter, if desired.
  8. Bake 15 18 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove biscuits from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. 

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In order to calculate Net Carbs of any whole food item, it's a simple calculation based on the Nutrition Facts panel:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber = (Equals) Net Carbs

For low carb products sweetened with sugar alcohols (ie: glycerin, maltitol, etc), refer to the Nutrition Facts panel of the product:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber - (Minus) Sugar alcohol = Net carbs

This reflects the fact that Dietary Fiber doesn't impact blood sugar levels. Sugar alcohols also have a negligible impact on blood sugar, they too are subtracted from total carbs to yield the Net Carb count.
