Now that we have seen the ingredients, let’s get right into making these delicious Gluten-Free Biscuits. The recipe is fairly simple and straightforward, so you can count on a perfect bake every time!

Step 1: Preheat Your Oven

First, we need to get the oven “warmed up and ready” for our biscuits. Preheat the oven at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). This high-temperature setting helps us achieve perfectly flaky biscuits.

Step 2: Mix the Dry Ingredients

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together all of the remaining dry ingredients which includes gluten-free flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until everything is evenly distributed.

Step 3: Add Cold Butter

Now it’s time to bring in some fat and flavor to these biscuits. Cut your cold butter into small cubes and mix them thoroughly with the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter until it resembles a coarse meal.

Step 4: Create Buttermilk Mixture

In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients—the dairy-free yogurt-derived vegan yogurt, egg whites and apple cider vinegar—until its consistency becomes creamy-smooth.

Step 5: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Add your wet mixture to your dry mixture and stir briskly until everything gets combined just right!

Step 6: Make Biscuits

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and using an ice cream scoop or spoon—portion twelve equal parts onto your lined baking sheet at about two inches apart from each other. You can also drop** cut-off biscuit dough edges onto a different baking pan to utilize it too!

Step 7: Bake Biscuits

Place this baking sheet into the preheated oven for fifteen minutes, These biscuits will still look pale, but by that time, you’ll see they have perfectly risen.

Step 8: Prepare Top and Serve

Take the biscuits out and brush with melted butter lightly. Serve them warm for breakfast, brunch, or as a side with your favorite meals. They can also be chilled or frozen for later use.

Now that you have successfully made your Gluten-Free Biscuits, enjoy your creation along with your preferred pairing!

Are you looking for ways to customize this gluten-free biscuit recipe? I’ve got you covered! Here are some substitutions and variations that you can try:

– Dairy-free: If you’re vegan or have a dairy allergy, you can easily make these biscuits dairy-free. Simply replace the butter with a non-dairy spread or coconut oil, and use non-dairy yogurt instead of regular yogurt.

– Flours: This recipe calls for a gluten-free flour blend, but you can use your favorite flour mix. I recommend King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour, or a homemade blend of rice flour, potato starch, and tapioca flour. Just make sure the blend used has xanthan gum in it or the biscuits may not hold together as nicely.

– Fruit: You can mix in dried cranberries or diced apples into the biscuit dough for a fruity twist on this classic recipe.

– Chocolate: Have a sweet tooth? Add some chocolate chips into the dough for a decadent treat!

– Bisquick option: Replace the flour mix with Bisquick gluten-free mix and follow the remaining steps in the recipe.

– Buttermilk biscuits: If you prefer buttermilk biscuits, simply substitute ½ cup of plain yogurt with ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk mixed with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to make dairy-free buttermilk.

With these substitutions and variations, you can make this easy gluten-free biscuit recipe your own and impress your family and friends with your baking skills.

Once you have prepared these flaky gluten-free drop biscuits, you may want to save some for later. Luckily, they can be easily stored and reheated for a quick breakfast or snack.

If you plan on making them ahead of time, simply store the cooled biscuits in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. When ready to serve, reheat them in the oven at 350°F for about 5-7 minutes until warm and crispy.

For longer storage, you can also freeze the baked biscuits. Wrap each individual biscuit in plastic wrap or foil and store them in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 2 months. To reheat frozen biscuits, preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for about 10-12 minutes until fully thawed and warmed through.

If you have leftover dough that hasn’t been baked yet, you can refrigerate it for up to 24 hours before baking. Just remember to tightly wrap it with plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to prevent drying out.

Whether you are making these gluten-free drop biscuits ahead of time or storing leftovers, they will still taste delicious when reheated. Plus, having them ready-to-go in the fridge or freezer makes for an excellent quick breakfast option!

Tips for Perfect Results

Gluten-free biscuit recipes can be a little finicky, but fear not! These tips will ensure that your biscuits turn out perfectly every time.

First and foremost, it’s important to make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature. This ensures that everything mixes together evenly and avoids any lumps or clumps in the dough.

Secondly, when measuring your flour, use the spoon and level method to avoid packing too much flour into your measuring cup. Too much flour can result in tough, dry biscuits.

In addition, mixing the dough properly is key. Mix gently and only until the ingredients are combined. Over-mixing gluten-free dough can lead to a tough and dense final product.

When it comes to baking, keep a close eye on your biscuits in the oven. Gluten-free batters usually take less time to bake than their wheat-based counterparts, so don’t leave them in the oven for too long.

Another tip to keep in mind is moisture content. Gluten-free flours tend to absorb more moisture than wheat-based flours, so if your dough seems too dry, add an extra tablespoon of liquid at a time until you reach the correct consistency.

Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment with different gluten-free flour blends to find one that works best for you. There are plenty of options available on the market, such as King Arthur Flour’s Gluten Free Flour Blend or Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to making perfectly baked gluten-free biscuits every time.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this gluten-free biscuit recipe is a fantastic addition to your recipe collection. Not only are they easy and quick to make, but they are also versatile, giving you the option to add your own personal flare with substitutions and toppings.

With ingredients such as apple cider vinegar, yogurt, and gluten-free flour blend used in this recipe, you can feel good about what you’re putting into your body. You don’t have to sacrifice taste for health benefits with these biscuits – they have a flaky texture and buttery flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup cranberries (optional)


  • Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry and mix well with an electric mixer (you can do it by hand, but I find coconut meal turns out better if you use a mixer).
  • Grease muffin tins (non metal work best). Fill muffin tins almost full (I haven't tried them dropped on a cookie sheet yet, but it would probably work). I added a cup of frozen cranberries and filled the tins very full and got 10 large biscuits from this mix.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
