Original Post…

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


a little sugar


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.

    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!

    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! ❤️

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

    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!

    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!

    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.

  11. 5 stars
    These were so good. I used King Arthur Measure For Measure Gluten free flour and followed the recipe exactly. So quick and easy to throw together. They taste great and the texture was awesome. My whole family loved them. This recipe Is a keeper! .

    Fantastic! You are the Ina Garten of healthy, gluten free cooking and baking! As with Ina’s recipes, I know that if I like the flavor profile your recipe is going to be dependable and delicious!

    I can say with certainty that I have not had a such a fantastic biscuit since being diagnosed in 2011! WOW…… this was a quick and simple recipe to make and turned out absolutely amazing!
    I used Cup 4 Cup, as that’s what I had in my pantry. My husband agreed, after years of sad, failed attempts at biscuits, that this one was clearly a winner….Finally, a biscuit we can enjoy.

    I must agree with Heather’s comment, you are definitely the GF Ina Garten! I’ve made a few of your recipes now, and like Ina, they are obviously tested to perfection before being published.
    Thanks so much, Karen!

    I made these tonight and they are very good!! I used a different 1 for 1 flour brand because I haven’t tried the GF Jules.

  15. Hi Karen,
    I did not use hand mixer ,but my Swedish whisk.GF flour and followed directions. They were wonderfully flat and delicious. Suggestions please? How wonderful to have hand written recipe.

  16. Hi
    Just made these and they didn’t bake properly inside. One of the previous reviewers wrote she used almond milk. I did the same. I used Earth Balance butter. Do you think that’s why they didn’t bake properly?
    I added some herbs to make it savoury (no cheese). Would appreciate your opinion.

    1. Hi! Sorry that happened to you! I haven’t made them with almond milk but have made them with Earth Balance so unless the milk was particularly heavy, I can’t imagine that was the issue… A few thoughts… was your baking powder “new/ fresh enough”? Is your oven properly calibrated/ working with other baking? I tend to bake breads/ biscuits on the middle shelf in my oven. Did you double check all your measurements? Finally,sometimes, for no apparent reason, gluten-free breads more than others take longer to bake in the center — I haven’t experienced that with these biscuits, but if that ever happens, you can loosely cover with foil so that the tops don’t burn but the inside continues to cook.

  17. I’ve made these biscuits three times already always adding a nee flavor to it. It quickly became a family favorite.

  18. Hi there! Just made these last night. I followed the recipe exactly and the texture came out all wrong. When I blended the ingredients it looked like cake batter. The batter was runny and once they were cooked they were smooth on top. I feel like it must have been something I did wrong on my end but can’t figure out what! Any thoughts?? Thanks!

  19. Hi! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Do you think these would work as drop dumplings? How long would you boil them if so.
    Thank you!

    I use vegan margarine and soy milk and these turned out perfectly! Also added some vegan cheese. Haven’t tried a recipe yet from Karen that was not divine. I appreciate the detailed instructions.

  21. 5 stars
    Love these!! I grew up loving my moms homemade scones with jam and whipped cream. Never thought I’d had something similar after being diagnosed celiac, but these are so similar! Not to mention easy – thanks for the wonderful recipe!!

  22. 5 stars
    This recipe is amazing.
    It’s super easy, fast and cheap to do.
    It’s like regular scones you buy at the bakery. Make me think at my mother when she did this «withe galette » to me when I was a kid. Here we eat with butter on it, a lot😜
    Thank you a lot and I will do more recepie from you.
