Cheesy Biscuits-Gluten Free

Gluten-Free Cheesy Biscuits
The Pioneer Woman and Kait Nolan both have yummy looking bacon cheddar biscuit recipes. I wanted to try my own version but to be fair I started with their recipe and ended up with something different.

                      Cheesy Biscuits Gluten Free

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Prepare a cookie sheet by lining with parchment paper.

What you need:
1 3/4 cup gluten free flour ( I use Jules flour)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
if not using Jules flour mix you need 1 tsp. xanthan gum
1tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 stick of butter
3/4 cup of butter milk ( I make my own by adding a little less than a tsp. of white vinegar to milk)
1/2 cup of water
1/2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar
1 egg white
1 cup shredded Italian cheese

How to
In a large mixing bowl combine the flours,salt, Italian seasoning, baking soda, baking powder and xanstham gum (if using) and whisk

Cut the butter into tiny pieces, add to flour mixture. Now for the fun! Use your hands to mix the butter into the flour so you don't have large butter pieces
Add the cheese and mix

Add the buttermilk, water, egg white and apple cider vinegar to the flour mixture. Stir well.
Mound 12 biscuits on parchment paper (or you could use an oiled muffin pan)
Bake 20 min. then check with a toothpick to see if done. They may need up to 5 more minutes.


  1. So what did you think? I made a similar but different version and the coconut flour was a bit too much for me. A little too sweet. I wanted it more savory. I'm thinking the cider vinegar and Italian seasoning might do that.

    1. They were really good, not sweet at all.

  2. Alas, I can't have dairy either, but we're nearly there! Going to try an amendment to your biscuits, Diana, because you can't go wrong with coconut and almond flour. Should taste amazing.

    1. oh no dairy either? That makes it tough. Good luck. Let me know how they turn out.
