These are bomb biscuits.
Biscuits, baby. I can’t tell you the last time I had a biscuit that I got really excited about making, partially because 1) I’m not a baker, 2) they’re always filled with gluten which is a personal no-no in my body, 3) they’re so much work to make, and 4) did I mention I’m not a baker? Lucky for you, this recipe was supposed to be in my cookbook that comes out next fall (eeek!) but I had to cut it because I had too many recipes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. And now, I get to share the easiest and Ultimate Gluten Free Biscuit recipe for you, you’ll especially love it if you’re not a baker too. Keep reading for the ultimate simple and delicious gluten free biscuit made with under 10 ingredients.
I’ll start off by laying out some expectations for this recipe, this isn’t like a traditional fluffy or flaky biscuit. Intead this gluten free biscuit reminds me more of ones my friends shared with me from the UK – they’re a bit more dense and hearty, kind of like a scone, but not quite. I’ve yet to come up with a flaky and fluffy gluten free biscuit that didn’t require a thousand ingredients and so much time. So instead, I’ll take this heartier biscuit that requires little time and simple ingredients over a time-intensive fluffy guy any day!
My favorite way to enjoy these…well, there’s many, but I love them drizzled with honey or jam, and my all time favorite is one eaten with tea. I’ve also been known to make a mean egg sandwich with these with a heavy smear of avocado (insert praise hand emoji here). These biscuits are gluten free, but does that automatically make them a recipe we can eat in excess? No, but I think you knew that already. They’re high in carbohydrates which isn’t a bad thing, but just be strategic about the carbs you’re eating. I recommend being mindful when eating them since it’s easy to gobble them all up. Pairing them with a protein from the ideas below is a god way to keep blood sugars nice and stable.
Not that I think you’ll have a hard time coming up with ideas on how to enjoy these, but here are my favorites!
- Sliced in half to make a Chickpea Meatball sandwich…whoa. I went there.
- Spread Pumpkin Butter, Apple Butter, or Chia Jam on top
- Slice Maple Tempeh on top
- With melted dark chocolate and a spoonful of almond butter #dessertbiscuits
- Plain with a little coconut butter or oil spread on top with a poached egg
- Garlic toast? Sure, why not! Add a little garlic powder and transform these into garlic toast
- Add sliced avocado and sea salt for avocado biscuits
- Add this ridiculously good gravy for the classic biscuits and gravy
- Add a poached egg with Spinach Basil Pesto
As pictured here, there’s a beautiful golden yellow crust, this is completely optional as I realize you may be vegan and to achieve this I added raw honey for the last couple of minutes during baking just for flavor and color. Again, if you just want to brush a little coconut oil or butter/vegan butter on top while baking that’ll be beautiful as well! Otherwise, they’ll be white, which is fine by me.
Tools that make this recipe easier to make: this pastry cutter if you’d rather keep your hands clean during this process, ultimate baking pad for biscuits and breads alike, and jam jars.
