Update March 25: Especially now, when we are “sheltered at home” and eating lots of the same types of foods/ ingredients, these biscuits are a great way to make an ordinary meal feel special!
Just 7 pantry staples, 5 minutes prep and 20 minutes baking!
Made these gluten-free biscuits last night for the first time in a long time and had to share!
In fact, I showed them on Instagram Stories and an overwhelming 96% of you asked for the recipe, so here it is!
This is actually a recipe from my grandmother.
She called them baking powder biscuits (for the obvious reason, they require a lot of baking powder!) and she made them whenever she needed something quick!
I love the original hand-written recipe card she gave me long ago.
She was correct, “These are so fast to make and one of the best!”
They require only 7 ingredients — all pantry staples.
All you need is all purpose flour (we used GF Jules – affiliate link), baking powder, salt, a little sugar, milk, 1 egg, and a touch of butter.
You may note that my Grandmother did not use egg but when we started making these gluten-free we felt the egg was necessary to get the soft and fluffy texture.
As an aside, you may have noticed that we are affiliate for GFJules. To learn more about why we love GFJules flour and why we have used it for 10 years, click here. Bonus: at the bottom of that post is a one-time use affiliate Discount Code.
And importantly, purchasing through an affiliate link does not change your cost at all. It generates a small percentage of the sale for me, and purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!
Back to the Easy Gluten-free Biscuits…
They come together quickly!
You literally throw all the ingredients in one bowl and mix it up until well combined.
Then drop the batter into 6 biscuits on a baking sheet and bake!
In 20 minutes you have a warm, bready biscuit!
Just look at this texture!
Best served warm, it’s extra yummy served with butter, honey or jam.
Just 7 ingredients (all pantry staples!), these gluten-free biscuits take just 5 minutes to prep and after 20 minutes you can be enjoying a warm, bready biscuit! Recipe from my grandmother, made with gluten-free flour. Best served warm.

Recipe type: Muffins, Breads, Biscuits, Sides
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian
Serves: 6 biscuits
2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour (we used GF Jules- affiliate link)
4 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
Preheat oven 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, blend all ingredients until well combined (I use a stand mixer to do this)
Scoop 6 large spoonfuls batter onto baking sheet gently forming a biscuit shape as need.
Bake 20 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. If at 20 minutes, tops are crisp but you want to cook the center an extra few minutes, gently cover with foil and bake additional 5 minutes.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
Enjoy plain, with butter or honey or jam!
If you have extra, store at room temperature for a day but heat up before serving.
