Gluten free buttermilk biscuits


Gluten free buttermilk biscuits are ready! When these words are called out in my home ~ the kids come running!! These gluten free buttermilk biscuits are especially delicious when served warm and fresh out of the oven. We love these gluten free buttermilk biscuits served simply with a little strawberry jam.

These are also heavenly for breakfast with a little sausage and egg on the side or for lunch with soups and stews. We never have left overs, but if you do, they toast up nicely the next day. I love that my picky little eaters snap them up in a flash and that they never complain about them being gluten free. Try these gluten free buttermilk biscuits with my gluten free copy cat Ivar’s clam chowder or gluten free 10 minute tomato soup.

These gluten free buttermilk biscuits are soft, savory and quick and easy to make. The gluten free flour I recommend using for this recipe is Namaste perfect flour blend. I have great results every time.

You can buy this flour online (affiliate, click the picture) or at Costco.

Save time and money with your own biscuit mix:

To save time, I measure out all the dry ingredients ahead of time for a batch. Then I save the dry ingredients in an air-tight zip-lock bag or container in the pantry. It’s your own “pre-made” biscuit mix.

Baking tips:

  • You’ll have the best results if you bring your “wet” ingredients to room temperature prior to baking. This can be as easy as measuring it all out in a large mixing bowl and letting it sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the biscuits into round balls. If you don’t have an ice-cream scoop, try your 1/4 cup measuring cup.
  • Use a parchment paper lined baking sheet. I’ve found they brown too fast on the bottoms without it.
  • Using a different all-purpose gluten-free flour? You will need to check to see if your flour blend contains xanthan gum. If it does not, add 1/4 a tsp of xanthan gum to the dry ingredients. This acts as a thickening agent.

Gluten free buttermilk biscuits

You don’t have to miss out on biscuits if you’re gluten free! Savory, soft and delicious. These gluten free buttermilk biscuits are quick and easy to make.

  • 1 1/2 cups Namaste perfect flour blend ((all-purpose gluten free flour blend))
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt ((a generous pinch))
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (melted (for brushing on tops))
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Use a whisk to incorporate everything really well. Set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine and lightly beat together the buttermilk, egg and 1/4 cup melted butter.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Using a spatula, combine to create a wet dough.
  5. Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop the biscuits into round balls and place them onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Brush the tops with the remaining tablespoon of melted butter. This will add more flavor and brown them a little.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until they are baked through.

  1. They look great, in many ways similar to Britsh Scones although the dough sounds much wetter.. Must give these a try.

  2. Thanks for sharing! Do you know off hand what the base of the flour is? These look delish.

  3. These look really light and fluffy and it’s hard to believe they are gluten free!

  4. I love how fluffy they look…not always easy to achieve with gluten free! I can see why your kids come running when you’ve made them!

  5. I love buttermilk biscuits! We have an abundance of scones here but they’re not the same! Seeing this gluten-free recipe is absolutely great for me! =)

  6. Wow these do look fluffy and delicious which is interesting because gluten free generally gives things a weird texture! I guess my mouth needs to determine if this is really true! 😉

  7. These look absolutely delicious, especially for gluten free.

  8. Although I don’t have to bake gluten free, I do have friends that like it. These sound delicious. Perfect for stews, chilis or just on their own.

  9. I wish I had some for breakfast this morning.

  10. I have powder butter milk on hand. These look yummy.
