Gluten-free biscuits that are light and fluffy?
Yes, they are! Both of my daughters were so excited when they first taste tested these for me, because most of the biscuits that I’ve tried to make over the years have been more like a hockey pucks, but not these! These biscuits are light and fluffy, just like a good biscuit should be.
The trick is to use egg whites and to beat them to a nice froth before mixing with the flour.
I’ve made them with coconut oil that was melted and coconut oil just softened and they worked great both ways. I found these were easier to make using the melted coconut oil, since all you have to do is stir.
