  • Mixing Bowl
  • Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
  • Biscuit Cutter


  • 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour with xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
  • ½ cup salted butter, cold and cubed for vegan see notes below
  • ¾ cup buttermilk, plus extra for brushing for vegan see notes below


  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir well.
  • Add the cold butter and using a dough blender, fork or your hands, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add the milk to the flour mixture and gently stir until a dough forms. Knead with your hands a few times, until you are able to form a ball of dough.
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a countertop or cutting board.
  • Place the dough onto the parchment paper. Using your hands, gently pat the dough into a 1-inch thick square or rectangle.
  • Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, round cookie cutter or even the rim of a glass, cut the biscuits out of the dough. Gather the scraps of dough, pat out and repeat the process until you've used as much of the dough as you can.
  • Place the biscuits onto your parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Brush the tops with milk and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are turning golden brown.
  • Enjoy!



For Vegan and Dairy-Free Option:
Replace buttermilk with 3/4 cup plant-based milk mixed with 1 tablespoon of vinegar (any kind will do). This forms a vegan buttermilk.
Replace with butter with cold vegan butter or plant-based spread. I really like Miyokos brand for this purpose.
