Made from scratch, this Gluten Free Biscuits Recipe really checks all the right boxes! They’re fluffy, easy to make with just 5 ingredients, and always hit the spot. I promise you, you won’t miss the gluten!
What’s in this Gluten Free Biscuit Recipe
You only need 5 ingredients and a little salt to make a batch of these delicious biscuits.
- All Purpose Gluten Free Flour: Some good brands to choose fro include Bob’s Red Mill, Cup4Cup, and King Arthur.
- Baking Powder: This is what helps the biscuits rise to the best fluffy height. Check the expiration date because baking powder does expire! It’s best when used within 6 months of opening the container.
- Kosher Salt: This doesn’t make the biscuits taste salty. It’s really just used to help the biscuits have the best texture.
- Baking Soda: Just like baking powder, baking soda can also go bad and should be used within 6 months of opening it.
- Unsalted Butter: You’ll need it to be cold and cubed.
- Buttermilk: If you don’t have buttermilk, follow this simple homemade buttermilk recipe.
PRO TIP: If you are not gluten intolerant, you can make these biscuits with all-purpose flour.

Nope! There is no sugar to sweeten these homemade biscuits. They’re buttery and neutral flavored so they go well with both sweet and savory pairings.
There could be a few culprits here. First off, always make sure you measure your baking powder and baking soda with care and check that neither are expired. Secondly, use buttermilk, not any other type of dairy.
Fold the biscuit dough according to recipe instructions in order to create the best flaky layers in these biscuits. It may require a little TLC, but it’s well worth the effort!
How to Store/Reheat
Once cooled, you can transfer them to an airtight container and will keep fresh for 2 days. In the fridge, they will keep well for 5 days. Reheat the biscuits gently in the oven to serve.
How to Freeze
If you can’t get through your batch of gluten-free biscuits, freezing is a great option. Wrap the cooled biscuits individually in plastic wrap or foil and place in a freezer bag. The biscuits will keep well for 3 months and can be thawed at room temperature.
