Step 1TO MAKE THE BISCUITS: Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees.
Step 2Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 3In a large bowl, combine the coconut flour, almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Slowly incorporate the Cheddar cheese.
Step 4In the center of the dry ingredients, create a well for adding the wet ingredients.
Step 5Into this well, add the melted butter, eggs, and sour cream. Fold together until a dough forms.
Step 6Use a spoon to drop biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, placing them 1 inch apart.
Step 7Bake the biscuits for 20 minutes, or until firm and lightly browned.
Step 8TO MAKE THE SAUSAGE GRAVY: Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the ground sausage breaking it up with spoon and browning it on all sides.
Step 9Once the sausage browns, add the minced garlic. Cook for 1 minute.
Step 10Once the garlic is fragrant, sprinkle in the almond flour. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Allow the almond flour to incorporate with the grease to develop a light roux, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes.

Step 12Add the heavy cream. Increase the temperature to medium-high, stirring and reducing the mixture for 3 minutes.
Step 13Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the pepper and salt. Stir for 1 minute to incorporate.

Step 16Once the biscuits are cool, plate 1 biscuit per person and top with ⅓ cup of gravy.
