Biscuits and Sausage Gravy are one mine and my husband’s favorite weekend treat.


These are not traditionally a healthy meal. Traditional biscuits are full of processed carbs and hydrogenated fats. These processed carbs are likely to send your blood sugar soaring. Sausage gravy is usually thickened with processed flour, mixing carbs and fats.


We learned in Trim Healthy Mama  that when you mix carbs and fats together, you are going to store excess carbs and fats in your cells as more fat. 


First we needed to find the perfect biscuit. We want this meal to be a Satisfying or S meal for Trim Healthy Mamas out there. To do that, we need to find a low glycemic biscuit that is easy for busy moms and also uses plan approved flours. Our biscuits used coconut flour and almond flour. They were easy to make too. The grain free biscuits only took about 25 minutes from start to finish! We were able to bake them while I cooked the gravy.

The Gravy…. Wow. This is pretty awesome. I love gravy. 

Since traditional gravy is thickened with butter or fat and flour, I needed to come up with a way to thicken it while still staying on plan. The answer: Glucomannan

We used turkey sausage, but you can use pork or whatever type of sausage you like to use. No worries about how much fat is in the meat, because this is an S meal where eating fat is encouraged.

I added lots of seasonings that you can simplify if you want. You really only need to include: salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings. I added a few shakes of turmeric for added health benefits. 

No more waiting, here is the perfect Trim and Healthy Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

  1. If you wanted to make biscuits, you would want them to also be S. I love using almond flour and coconut flour for making biscuits that are grain free (and satisfying). You really can’t tell!

  2. I made sausage gravy using xanthan gum and the slimy texture was just too much for my husband. What kind of texture does Glucomannan produce. Is there a technique that I’m missing to avoid “the slime?” 🙂

    • I haven’t used Xanthan gum much… With the Glucomannan… I think it is just making sure you add just a little at a time and stirring really well – You can always try to mix a little more almond flour in too to give it some texture.

    • I haven’t made the recipe yet, but I tend to dislike the qlucomannan because it gets rather slippery. When I can, I use xanthum gum instead, but you have to use a bit less. Xanthum is the same as glucomannan in the way you add it. I usually just sprinkle a pinch at a time until I get the texture I like.

  3. My family and I love this recipe!! 🙂 We just usually use 1/2 the amount of meat called for, since we don’t like our gravy as meaty… lol 🙂

  4. Hey! I JUST found your website. I was browsing pinterest for gravy recipes! I follow you on instagram – emmymomof3kids. 🙂

    Can you taste the coconut flour in the biscuits? My husband hates tasting coconut in everything, so I wondered if this hid the flavor. 🙂

    • Hi!!! Yes I love following you : ) This is my favorite biscuit recipe ever! I don’t taste the coconut flour, but I’m not someone who has an aversion to the taste… I would think it is masked pretty well though! thank you again for checking out my blog : )

      • Yeah, I can’t taste the coconut flour very much anymore and don’t mind it at all, but I know he could probably taste it. He’s tricky like that. lol makes things more difficult! lol

  5. For coconut allergy, do you recommend using an alternative flour or just all almond flour? Would half golden ground flax and half almond flour be too dense? Thank you. I am new to THM, just bought their book. There is a lot to learn. 🙂

    • Coconut and Almond and Flax all are very very different consistencies when baking – for the biscuits, I would just find a coconut free recipe. For the Gravy, just slowly add in almond flour if using as a sub until it gets to the right consistency. Thanks!! And welcome to THM!

  6. Making this now, and it’s turning out so delicious, I keep tasting it! (: Thanks for such a great recipe!

  7. We are eating this right now. My husband gives it 2 thumbs up!!! He’s even happier that it is healthy so he can eat more 😉

  8. This is very good. I am reducing the spices a bit as it is a bit too much for hubby. One biscuit plus 1/2 cup gravy, an egg and 2 slices bacon was plenty for us.

  9. Hi there… I love THM and all the fabulous recipe’s. YUM. Anyway, I don’t often have individual flours on hand but almost always have the THM Baking Blend. Could that be substituted 1:1 for the coconut and almond flours?
