  • 4 cups gluten-free baking mix
  • 6 1/2 tbsp shortening
  • 2 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp guar gum
  • 1 cup teff flour
  • 1/4 cup quinoa flour
  • 2 cups gluten-free buttermilk

Step One: Preheat Your Oven

First things first, preheat your oven to 400°F. This will ensure your biscuits cook evenly and come out fluffy and golden brown.

Step Two: Combine Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients – gluten-free baking mix, flax seed meal, salt, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, guar gum, teff flour, and quinoa flour.

Step Three: Cut in Shortening

Next, using a pastry blender or fork, carefully cut in the 6½ tbsp of shortening into the bowl with the dry ingredients. The mixture should resemble coarse sand with some larger chunks of shortening.

Step Four: Add Buttermilk

Once again with a fork or a spatula if needed slowly begin to stir in 2 cups of gluten-free buttermilk until the dough comes together into a ball.

Step Five: Shape Dough into Biscuits

On a floured surface begin to shape your dough by either rolling it and cutting them with a cookie cutter or simply by rolling the pieces into balls then pressing them flat with your hand. You want to aim for around twelve even sized biscuits.

Step Six: Bake and Enjoy!

Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and dust the tops lightly with flour. Then, place them into the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes until they are golden brown. Serve hot out of the oven with any dish of your choosing.

There you have it, the perfect recipe for gluten-free and dairy-free buttermilk biscuits that are easy to make and delicious to enjoy!

Looking for ways to change up the Mrsp’s Hearty Gluten Free Biscuits Recipe? Here are some substitutions and variations you can try:

– Flour: If you don’t have teff flour or quinoa flour, you can substitute other gluten-free flours like rice flour, sorghum flour, or almond flour. You’ll want to use a gluten-free baking mix that already contains xanthan gum or guar gum to help bind the dough together.

– Buttermilk: If you’re dairy-free, you can make your own buttermilk substitute by mixing 1 cup of almond milk with 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice. Let it sit for 5 minutes before using in the recipe.

– Flax seed meal: You can also use chia seeds instead of flax seed meal as an egg substitute. Mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for 5 minutes before using in the recipe.

– Cheese biscuits: If you want to make cheesy biscuits, add 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the batter before forming into biscuits.

– Drop biscuits: To make drop biscuits, spoon the batter onto a greased baking sheet instead of forming into individual biscuits. Bake as directed in the recipe.

– Chicken pot pie topping: Use this biscuit recipe as a topping for chicken pot pie by dropping spoonfuls of the batter on top of the filling before baking in the oven.

Reheating biscuits is just as easy as making them! For best results, warm them up in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for 5-10 minutes or until heated through. You can also reheat them quickly in a microwave if you are short on time.

Tips for Perfect Results

These biscuits got me through some tough times – now I’m sharing the love!

We all want our biscuits to turn out perfect. But sometimes, even following a recipe exactly can still leave us with less than optimal results. Here are some tips to ensure that these gluten-free biscuits come out fluffy, flavorful and delicious every time.

Firstly, make sure your ingredients are at room temperature. This is especially important for dairy-free buttermilk. If it’s cold and then mixed with baking soda, it won’t react well and your biscuits will be dense and heavy. Plan ahead and take the buttermilk out of the fridge 30 minutes before making the recipe.

Secondly, avoid overworking the dough, this applies to biscuit dough made with traditional flour as well, but it’s even more crucial for gluten-free biscuit dough because they have a tendency to become dense if overworked. Mix the dough only until just combined and use a light hand when patting it out and cutting it into rounds.

Thirdly, making sure that your baking soda is fresh is crucial for the texture of your gluten-free biscuits. Check the expiration dates on your powders before starting to bake.

Fourthly, using a mix of flours can help mimic wheat flour’s properties in gluten-free baking. Teff flour is a good choice because it contributes to extra flavor while rice flour makes for a great texture. You can also try quinoa or sorghum flour for their taste.

Finally, your choice of fat can also make or break your gluten-free biscuits. While lard was traditionally used for flaky biscuits, shortening or coconut oil are good choices for dairy-free versions​. In addition, using flaxseed meal or xanthan gum can help provide structure similar to what you would get with wheat-based baked goods.

Follow these tips and these hearty gluten-free biscuits will come out perfectly every time!
