Are  you looking for a light, fluffy, and EASY gluten free biscuits recipe – one that isn’t hard or dense or grainy? Well, we spent years developing this recipe, and we know you’re going to love it!

Easy Gluten Free Biscuits

Our original recipe for Gluten Free Biscuits is a regular in our house, but we knew that you would love a ridiculously simple and easy version too!

Because gluten free flours behave differently than regular wheat flour, we’ve made a few tweaks to the recipe and tested it with several different flours to ensure your success.


Easy Gluten Free Biscuits

You might have a few questions, especially if you’re new to gluten free baking.

We recommend reading the tips below, but click here to skip to the recipe 🙂

WHICH FLOURS WORK WELL FOR EASY GLUTEN FREE BISCUITS?

Not all gluten free flours are created equal. We have many favorites (see our list here) and those favorites depend on what we’re baking! We know a lot of you are searching for one inexpensive flour blend that will work with every recipe, but we have yet to find that special blend 😉

Our opinion is that it is absolutely worth it to keep a package of one particular flour mix on hand so that we can enjoy incredibly tender, flaky and EASY gluten free biscuits on occasion.

We have tested this recipe with Cup4Cup, Grandpa’s Kitchen, Better Batter, King Arthur All Purpose Gluten Free Blend, and Bob’s Red Mill 1:1. Cup4Cup yielded the best results with Better Batter coming in at a close second. The biscuits pictured in this post were made using Cup4Cup flour blend.

While we love Grandpa’s Kitchen and Bob’s Red Mill 1:1, neither worked well for this particular recipe. The King Arthur Flour Blend worked OK, we just preferred the texture and taste of Cup4Cup which yielded a higher rise and an incredibly light and tender inside. Keep in mind that if you use King Arthur, you’ll need to add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum per cup of flour used in the recipe.

CAN I MAKE THESE EASY GLUTEN FREE BISCUITS DAIRY FREE?

Yes. We tried a few alternatives to cream and coconut cream yielded the best results. To make these easy gluten free biscuits dairy free as well, you’ll need to use a dairy free flour blend. This means you can’t use Cup4Cup, so our recommendation is Better Batter. You can also use either King Arthur All Purpose Gluten Free Flour or Gluten Free Mama’s Almond Flour Blend, but you’ll get the best results with Better Batter.

In summary, to make this recipe dairy free: Substitute the cream for 2/3 cup coconut cream. You’ll need to plan ahead and put a can of coconut cream or coconut milk into your fridge the day before.

When you’re ready to bake the biscuits, open the can and scrape the solid cream from the top. Warm slightly in a pan or the microwave – just enough to liquefy it. Continue to make the recipe as written, using a gf flour that is also dairy free.

 

DO I HAVE TO SHAPE THE BISCUITS?

Nope! You can use a 2 T cookie scoop (we love this one) or even a spoon to scoop the biscuit dough right onto your baking sheet. If you want a layered biscuit as pictured above then layer, pat, and cut out the dough. We almost always use the layer and cut method because they’re SO pretty!

IS THE DOUGH SUPPOSED TO BE THIS STICKY?

Yes! Gluten free baked goods absorb more moisture than ‘regular’ baked goods. Keeping the dough a bit wet means light and fluffy gluten free biscuits with no gritty texture. Yay!

From our kitchen to yours, we hope you get to enjoy these delicious and EASY gluten free biscuits recipe soon! Let us know if you have any questions, and ENJOY!

Yield: 6 biscuits
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

These easy gluten free biscuits are perfectly fluffy, tender, and light and are SO EASY to make with just 4 ingredients!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together gluten free flour, baking powder, and salt. Add cream while stirring with a spoon, just until everything is combined. Dough should be sticky.
  3. Shape biscuits using one of the two methods below (layering and patting will yield the best texture/appearance)
  4. Scoop biscuit dough onto a baking sheet using a spoon or 2 T cookie scoop. 
  5. Sprinkle a small amount 1/2 T - 1 T) of gluten free flour onto a baking mat, parchment, or wax paper. Scoop 1/4 of biscuit dough onto the floured surface, scoop another 1/4 of the dough on top and gently press down, and continue with remaining dough. Don't work the dough, simply pat down each piece on top so that you end up with a round of dough about 1" thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits and place them on a baking sheet.
  6. Gently brush the biscuits with a little cream. We use a pastry brush and whatever cream is left in the measuring cup
  7. Bake for 8-12 minutes (10 minutes is perfect in our oven) until the tops are a golden brown and biscuits are done inside. Don't over bake
  8. Remove from oven, and enjoy!

Notes

  1. To measure flour (for any recipe), stir the flour and then scoop it into your measuring cup. Finish by leveling it off with a knife. Using this method will ensure that you don't end up adding too much flour.
  2. To make dairy free, substitute 2/3 cup coconut cream for the cream and use a dairy free flour (cup4Cup contains dairy). We have had the best results with Better Batter, which performs just about as well as Cup4Cup.
  3. To make coconut cream, put a can of coconut milk or coconut cream in the fridge overnight. Scoop off the solid cream on top and warm slightly in the microwave or on the stovetop so that it is liquid.

FLOUR OPTIONS:

  1. Cup4Cup works best.
  2. Better Batter is a close 2nd.
  3. King Arthur Flour works, but use 2/3 cup cream instead and add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum if using their blend that doesn't contain any.
  4. A few readers have had success using Bob's Red Mill 1:1, but it wasn't our favorite to use in this recipe.
  5. We love Grandpa's Kitchen flour for many recipes, but it doesn't work very well for this one.

    Made these last night and they were a hit! Great texture, even though I was lazy and just scooped them out by a spoon. I used Pillsbury Best GF flour because that’s what I had on hand, and they turned out great.

      I’ve made these 4 times and love the taste. Just wondering why they fall after taking out of oven. They are so pretty and tall when I take them out then when they begin to cool they fall. Should I try cooking longer? I’ve tried 12 minutes but the ones in the center aren’t very browned.

    This recipe is fantastic. I always double the recipe and I brush on a little melted butter between layers as I am rolling it out. This makes them more moist and makes my non-GF eaters happy. I am thinking of using this dough recipe for a modified monkey bread, any suggestions or thoughts? It’s quite sticky and doesn’t rise much, but it seems worth trying as I prepare to host Christmas breakfast. This will be our first Christmas with my 14 yr old eating GF, we just found out he has Celiac, so I feel some added pressure 😉 We always have monkey bread.

      Hi Ali! So happy to hear you’re enjoying the biscuits. What flour are you using? The biscuits generally rise quite a bit for me when I use Better Batter or Cup4Cup flour, and are plenty soft without adding butter. I have plans to try this recipe for monkey bread also, I think it should work great! The flour really makes a difference and turns a good recipe into a great one. -Celeste

    I bought the cup 4 cup just like you recommended. The recipe works very well, I only mentioned the butter because I trying to please a newly GF teenage (under-sized) boy and his 3 non-GF siblings. It’s exhausting to please them all and I found that adding a tiny butter helps incase it can help others 😉 Plus then we don’t need to butter before eating. Mine definitely doubles in height which is great. I am just used to using yeast rolls for monkey bread and they grow enormously tall. I am going to do a test this week and see how it goes!

I have to make some substitutions – corn starch in place of white rice flour, and I used butter flavor instant potato flakes for the potato starch. I layered the dough as in step 5. They were flaky, golden and buttery tasting. Fluffy and soft unlike any gluten free bread products I’ve had until now. Thank you for the detailed recipe. I can’t thank you enough.

    These tasted amazing but didn’t rise for me. I used better batter and coconut cream. Any idea what I did wrong? I’m at an elevation of 2,300′. Could that be it? Or maybe my baking powder wasn’t fresh enough? (It’s probably a year old… Better Batter is brand new… My first time to try it). I scooped them out and after they baked, they were about a half an inch tall. Thx for your help 🙂

        The first time I made it it was super sticky… Next time it wasn’t sticky… Both were same size after cooked. I’ll try new baking powder and see if that does the trick. Even with them super flat my kids devoured them and I loved them also. I’d been missing a biscuit flavor. Thank you for such a tasty recipe 🙂

      Amber, I’m in Denver, CO and made the (AMAZING!) dinner roll recipe this past Sunday. It took over an hour for mine to rise (the recipe listed a quick 10-20 min rise time), but they did! Putting a towel, in addition to plastic wrap, over them was helpful. I’ll use both from now on to keep the sticky dough off the towel and help them rise more quickly. They also took a little longer to cook. Oh, and I used GF Jules for the rolls. Can’t wait to try these biscuits!!!

      I’ve noticed sometimes when I’m taking measurements in cups (instead of weight) that the recipe will vary greatly from batch to batch. I’ve had that happen with the rolls on this site. That said, I’ve tried this with coconut cream, milk + sour cream, and heavy cream, all using the cup4cup flour and the heavy cream biscuits rose the most by far, but I’m left to wonder if maybe I just shook the flour bag enough that time?? *shrug*
      I’m in Utah at 4K elevation, so I don’t think that’s your issue!
      @celeste, any chance you’ll start listing recipes with weights as well as measurements? I know the comments are frustrating when people just want to measure by cup, but my baking results are so much more consistent when done by weight!

    I don’t think I’ve ever left a comment on a blog before, but I had to tell you how much I appreciate this recipe! My 15 yo daughter has to be gluten and dairy free (my husband and I eat that way too, since she has to), she is soooo thin and we try soooo hard to find food like I used to make (I make KILLER regular biscuits! ?). These biscuits are UNBELIEVABLE!!! She almost cried when she ate them and I almost did too!! They’re so close to what I used to make!! Thank you again SO MUCH!! ❤️

    YES, PLEASE include weight measurements.
    I have seen weights for 1 cup of GF flours from 128 grams per cup to 148 grams per cup, depending on the brand or recipe for the blend. This isIf one looks at the flour bag it will give the weight for that particular GF flour. Knowing how much 1 cup of GF flour should be makes a big difference in the success of one’s recipe. For example, my favorite Pound Cake is the Elvis Presley Pound Cake recipe, but when I tried to convert it to GF, it fell once and was dry another time, although both times I used the same GF blend, but just a different weight for the flour. On the Cup4Cup bag the weight of 1 cup of that blend weighs 128 grams. King Arthur’s weighs 120 grams, and Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 is 148 grams for 1 cup!
    So Yes, Please give us weights, Celeste. Thank you so much 🙂

    i used 1:1. followed your recipe (diary free) to a T. MY biscuits did not rise at all; rather they stayed 1″ and never browned.
    bummer.

      Hi Leslie! I’m sorry they didn’t turn out, that is always frustrating. I do not recommend Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 flour in this recipe (it’s in the FAQ section above the recipe post), but instead recommend Better Batter especially for the dairy free version. Also, if your baking powder is more than a few months old, it will not work as well and might inhibit your rise. Overworking the dough can have the same effect. I hope you give it another shot and get to enjoy them 🙂 -Celeste

    These were a Pinterest fail for me. I used a cup for cup flour mixture, and cream. They are hard, cookie-esque blobs. Maybe I overwhisked, maybe it’s altitude based, (we’re at 4600′) but I did add a smidge more liquid for altitude…

    I added a pinch of garlic powder and just a little fine grated aged Gouda.
    They’re light and flakey without falling apart, and they really do melt in your mouth.

    These were definitely the best gf biscuits I’ve ever eaten, let alone made – and I believe they give ANY biscuit I’ve ever had a real run for their money. We darn near came to blows over the last biscuit last night. They were ridiculously easy to make, no pastry blenders necessary. I only dropped them onto parchment paper, but they were SO LIGHT and FLUFFY. Thanks for this brilliant recipe!

      Sorry for the confusion Rachel, you put it in the fridge so that the cream will rise to the top and solidify. You’ll only use the cream, and keep the leftover coconut water below for smoothies or something else 🙂

    As soon as I saw the video I printed the recipe to try because they look so good and easy! Husband & daughter always have to use toast (more like s.o.s.) when I make biscuits & sausage gravy but these look good enough to serve to the whole family of 6. I used to make chicken & dumplings using Bisquick but haven’t made in a long time due to 2 family members being GF. I tried the GF bisquick for the stew but didn’t like how it came out, wasn’t anything like the regular. I’m curious if this recipe would work like that, dropping onto boiling stew?

    These are absolutely delicious! I tried both drop and layering. I had difficulty with the layering process. I couldn’t figure out how to flatten the dough wide enough to make multiple biscuits so I used a rolling pin which resulted in the biscuits coming out rather flat. Are there pictures or a video you could post to show how you layer? Thanks!!
