Growing up in the South, biscuits were a suppertime table staple! They were usually served alongside Southern mashed potatoes, green beans, and chow-chow. Since adopting a gluten-free diet, I’ve long since craved the biscuits of my childhood and I think I’ve finally nailed the recipe. These gluten-free biscuits truly have a pleasing taste and texture and are reminiscent of traditional buttermilk biscuits. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

🍞 Ingredient Notes

Gluten-free all-purpose flour: Be certain to use a gluten-free flour blend that already contains xanthan gum, for best results.

Butter: Butter is responsible for adding flavor and the texture biscuits are famous for.

Baking powder: It might seem like a lot of baking powder, but it’s truly just the right amount to create the rise these biscuits need.

    These were super great. I rested the dough in the fridge for ten minutes to give the rice flour that’s in the gf all purpose flour time to hydrate so it wouldn’t be grainy. I used butter and oat milk/acv.

    I’m a New Yorker, but I love biscuits with gravy and could eat them 24/7. A gluten free option makes them even better!

    Turned out wonderful. My gluten free flour didn’t have xanthum gum so I added sum, I went with 3/4 tsp. Not sure but they turned out wonderful for lunch with homemade muscadine jelly and also vegan sausage gravy. Thank you for this recipe.

    These are totally different from what we know as biscuits here in the UK, but they sound amazing. And a great gluten free option too.
