Gluten-Free Biscuits - Dairy-Free


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.

    Hi Robin,

    I just made the biscuits and I licked the bowl and it batter was wonderful! They just came out of the oven and they look spectacular! Now I have to wait for them to cool before I eat one. Bummer!

    I didn’t have purchased ground almond flour so I ground my own.

    Now off in the car I go and I will return later to see how they taste!

      Hi Sandy! Yay! You’ll have to let me know what you think.

    This was such a wonderful recipe….I’ve recently been told by my ND to forgo all grains for awhile so I’ve been craving some bread and this hit the spot! Thanks so much!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Rhonda, I’m so glad that you like it! And thrilled that this can help you with your health!! Love you!

  3. These look delicious! I am going to make them tonight! Thank you!

  4. Kelly B

    thank you for such a great recipe. These came out great! tested like real biscuits!

  5. Laura

    Can I used regular all purpose flour? I can’t find the almond flour in my local grocery.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Laura, you can use a different flour, but it will change the recipe. Using almond flour will keep it in the guidelines that I needed for this recipe, mainly that it be gluten-free, dairy-free, and fit with Trim Healthy Mama.

  6. Thanks for this great recipe….Just took them out of the oven and they are perfect and yummy. That doesn’t always happen with grain free cooking. This recipe is a keeper

    These biscuits came out divine. As a lover of southern style biscuits who grew up eating the real deal these are seriously so so good and satisfying. Soft and not crumbly! I kept mine in for about 20 mins and added butter on top in the last few mins to help them brown but other than that a perfect recipe!! My friends who aren’t gluten free or grain free thought they were amazing so this is definitely a recipe I’ll be repeating.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      That’s great! It’s always a delight when friends who aren’t gluten free like your gluten-free foods! 🙂

    I made these biscuits last night. I added a sprinkle of my Everything Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s. These are the BEST low carb biscuits that I have ever made!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      That’s wonderful!

    I have a question. Would it be OK to put the egg yolks in the batter? I doubled the recipe and they turned out wonderful. Light and fluffy. Delicious
    But I would like to incorporate the yolks into the batter. What do you think?

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Karen,

      You could definitely try it. I’m thinking the egg yolks will make it denser so the texture may change.

  11. Diane

    Oh my goodness thank you so much for these biscuits! I made them tonight for the first time. They taste so good, the texture is wonderful and they will be a regular item at my house from now on!

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Diane, I’m so glad you like them!

    Hubby can’t have coconut oil due to allergy. Do you think ghee or butter will work in place of the coconut oil? I’m just now trying to find bread replacements so have zero knowledge of what will work….

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yes, ghee or butter should work just fine in this recipe. I haven’t tried it personally, but when recipes call for butter I use coconut oil so it should work in reverse. Hope it works for you. It’s definitely a challenge when you’re working with allergies.
