Gluten free cheddar and chive biscuits

Are you finding it hard to say no to some of your favorite baked goods? Being on a gluten free diet can be really challenging. I find really difficult to say no to – pizza, cake and biscuits.  So, I’ve been on a mission to find replacements to satisfy these cravings. These cheddar and chive biscuits have a delicious savory flavor. They’re soft, airy and my family really enjoyed them too. (Yay! If you’re gluten-free, you know it can be a challenge to find substitutes that everyone in the family enjoys.) I highly recommend them as a side to go with breakfast plates or chowders like this gluten-free white clam chowder recipe.

Cheddar and chives are a great flavor combo in biscuits

I grow chives in my culinary garden. They are such a pretty and versatile herb, similar to a scallion. It’s best to use them sparingly because they pack a big flavor punch. (The bees like them too. And we need to help our busy pollinators out as much as possible.) Chives are a perennial and naturally help keep garden pests away.

I use an ice-cream scoop to drop the biscuit mix onto the baking sheet. This made making them a snap.

This recipe yields about 6 – 8 biscuits, just enough for one meal. I recommend doubling the recipe if you need a bigger batch. Use King Arthur gluten-free all-purpose flour mix or another good quality brand like Namaste perfect flour blend – both available through Amazon Pantry.

  1. I’m excited to try these – I love biscuits.

     
  2. Yum, thank you for this biscuit recipe!

     
  3. Stumbled across this recipe while looking for gf scone recipes and these biscuits are a new house favorite. I’ve made them the way you have written, I’ve added bacon crumbles and (while they are in season) subbed the chives for ramps. The family now expects these to grace the Sunday dinner in some variety. Thank you so much!!
