Perfect soft and fluffy texture, tasty and satisfying.

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 made 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.

Back to the 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!

    1. Great questions! I know dairy free Earth Balance will work because I use that interchangeably with butter all the time. As for a dairy free milk, it might change the flavor a bit so I would use your favorite dairy free alternative and give it a try! Texture-wise it will be great, it’s the flavor that will shift a bit. Let me know if you make them.

  1. I just made these! Well first I tried it with almond flour, egg substitute and almond milk. They turned out flat so then I used regular flour and the egg substitute and almond milk (and all other ingredients you mentioned) and they turned out well! Thanks for the recipe as always!!

  2. Made these this morning! I used vanilla oatmeal milk instead because that’s what I had in the fridge. They were yummy! I served them with breakfast for my kids on our snow day and I had one with soup for dinner!

  3. These were SO easy to make and came out perfect!! So fluffy I can’t believe it! They taste amazing and my family loves them with butter and jam

  4. Made these the second I saw them on instagram and boy were they Devine!! They were super easy to make and the were devoured that night by my husband! We call them scones here in Australia and traditionally we eat them with jam and cream but just a little jam on top and they were scrumptious! Thank you for sharing your grandmothers recipe. Another winner Karen xx

  5. FIVE STARS ⭐️ (my phone won’t let me select the). As usual, your recipes are no fail, exactly as described. These biscuits were easy, so fluffy, and delish, my non gf family gobbled them up. Thank you for putting out quality recipes. I love having pictures and videos to see texture cues along the way too! ❤️

  6. My entire family loved these! Including my newly gfree and often resentful of it 8-yo daughter, my picky 5-yo son and my husband who is always a little wary of gluten free bread products. And I loved how easy they were. Thank you so much! I promised my daughter I’d make them at least once a week. (Also, I have been diagnosed Celiac for four years and these were the most delicious bread product I’ve made!!)

  7. These have become a staple for my family. They are easy to make and come out perfect every time.

  8. made these with bobs red mill 1-1 baking flour and almond milk and they came out great! So fluffy and light! Reminds me of chick-fil-a biscuit!

  9. WOW!! Just made these for my hubby for Father’s Day breakfast! He hasn’t had a biscuit in years. A hit with the whole family. Thank you for another fantastic recipe!

  10. These biscuits are delicious and easy to make! I used Bob’s Red Mill GF 1-to-1 flour, used less sugar, added garlic powder and dry parsley and added 1 tbsp of lemon juice to my milk (total of 1 Cup liquid) to make it more like buttermilk. I made a gluten-free chicken pot pie filling with gravy and put it in a baking dish. I spooned the biscuit dough onto the top and baked according to your instructions. It was SO yummy! My gluten-eating family loved it. I’ll have to try these with GF sausage gravy next.
