Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy

What’s better than a perfectly light and fluffy gluten free biscuit? A perfectly light and fluffy gluten free biscuit smothered in gravy, of course! You’ll love this simple yet delicious recipe for Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy.

A few months ago we announced that the month of August would be BISCUIT MONTH on our Facebook page, and we loved seeing your excitement! Thank you for sharing your ideas and enthusiasm with us, you are the reason for everything behind the Life After Wheat blog and we are so grateful for you.

We already had a recipe for Gluten Free Biscuits, and we decided to follow that with a recipe that we think you’ll agree is simply magical.

Magical because these EASY Gluten Free Biscuits have only 4 simple ingredients and require a measly 5 minutes of prep time. Our only fear is that you’ll think this recipe looks just too good to be true, but we hope that you’ll trust us on this one and make them anyway.

We promise you’ll be amazed and that you’ll want to make them again and again – because that’s exactly what we have done!

A while back we also created a recipe for Copycat Cheddar Bay Biscuits for Blendtec, which is another favorite at our house. We love how easy it is, and the pop of flavor from freshly grated cheddar cheese and delicious spices is perfection.

Feel free to use any of the above recipes for your gluten free biscuits and gravy, they will all work great! That being said, our current favorite is this Easy 4-Ingredient Gluten Free Biscuit recipe…We love that it only takes a few minutes and the texture is just so ridiculously good.

Of course, you couldn’t have biscuits and gravy without the gravy, so let’s talk about making gravy with gluten free ingredients. First, you’re going to need a good gluten free flour to thicken the gravy.

Our go-to for all sauces and gravies is gfJules, it functions just as regular wheat flour would to lend a creamy texture without any grittiness – and there’s no funky aftertaste. Others we have used include Better Batter, Cup4Cup, and Grandpa’s Kitchen.

The ingredients list for this gravy recipe is pretty simple: Sausage, gluten free flour, salt and pepper, and milk. Be sure all your ingredients are gluten free, especially the sausage (we used Jimmy Dean).

We used 2% milk, but you could easily make this gravy more rich and creamy by using whole milk or substituting 1/4-1/2 cup evaporated milk or cream for an equal amount of the milk.

It’s also easy to season this gravy to your taste preference. Seasoned salt will give your gravy an added depth of flavor (we like Real Salt seasoned salt best), but feel free to use plain old S&P if that’s what you have on hand.

If you’re new to gluten free cooking and baking, this recipe is for you! Its incredibly simple and uses ingredients that you likely have on hand, or will be easy to find. Enjoy these gluten free biscuits and gravy for breakfast, brunch, or dinner, they’re great any time of day 🙂

    Delicious! And so easy to put together. I used the Cup4Cup instead of gfJules and a 12 oz can of evaporated milk with water to make 2 cups. I didn’t have the stuff to make the biscuits so I just broiled/toasted some GF bread with butter spread on it.

    It’s been so so long since I’ve had sausage gravy. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    Wos. Just wow. Sweet memories of my auntie in Georgia making this. The gravy was amazing! The biscuits looked weird, but tasted great! I used namaste flour blend for both.

    I’ve made this with cup4cup & better batter flour and both were delicious! They are tender, flaky, & BETTER than any regular biscuits I made before I had to be GF!

      So so good! The biscuits were fluffy and tender, and the gravy was rich and delicious, despite my substitutions. Didn’t realize I only had coconut milk in the house after buying just enough cream for the biscuits. And it still tasted fantastic! Will definitely be making this again.

    Do you have any recommendations for ways to make this recipe dairy-free by using Almond Milk?

    • Reply

      Great question Justin! I haven’t tried that, but if you can tolerate cashews I would recommend using a homemade cashew milk as the texture will be more similar to milk. You can do so by soaking 1 cup raw cashews overnight, then rinsing and blending with 3 cups water until smooth. Hope that helps! -Celeste

    I made the gravy to go with GF biscuits that I had already made and it was amazing! I didn’t have enough regular milk so I used 1 cup 2%, 3/4 cup almond milk, and 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Will definitely make it again!

    So good! I used Cup4Cup flour and 1 1/4 skim milk 1/2 whipping cream. Everything turned out tasting exactly like I hoped for…not always the case when cooking gluten free. Husband was raving, always nice.
    Thank you!

      No, use the milk called for in the recipe.

    I have an allergy to mammal meat in addition to celiac. (Yeah. That’s super awesome living in the south).

    Has anyone tried this with the turkey sausage? I would think I’d need to add a little fat due to much lower fat content of the meat. Maybe butter? Any thoughts or tips?

      That would be a challenge! I haven’t tried it with turkey sausage but I would add some oil or butter as you said. You want there to be fairly equal amounts of fat:flour to create a roux.

        Why did my biscuits not rise? I only had bob mills on hand.

          Bob’s Red Mill does not work well with this recipe and won’t rise well. Try Cup4Cup, you’ll love them!

      I tried with turkey sausage(extra oil to fry up and before flour added for rue)+vegan butter+oat milk as substitutes, same ratios, and it came out awesome!

    Good news, folks! I did a pound of the turkey sausage and added a tablespoon of butter. Worked like a dream. I also didn’t have whole milk, so I did 1 1/2 cups of 2% and 1/2 cup of heavy cream and…

    Oh. My. God.

    This is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Even my husband who hates eating GF loves it! Going to be a staple around here! (Well, not too often, lest we end up on My 600lb Life, but, you know…frequent enough!)

    Thank you!!!
