Gluten Free & Dairy Free Biscuits Recipe

Can you imagine a gluten free & dairy free biscuit recipe that is also delicious, moist and full of flavor?  This biscuit recipe is actually all of that!  I adapted this recipe from a chicken pot pie recipe (coming soon!) but the biscuits are good enough to stand alone or be used for other meals.  

For the first few years after I had to adapt my diet to be gluten free, I gave up bread altogether.  Finally I started trying some different brands and have only found one,  Outside the Breadbox in Colorado Springs that is actually worth the calories.  Just recently I have experimented with baking gluten free breads at home and have had quite a few flops!  I was excited when this one was actually a success!

My ingredient recommendations:

  • You can use any 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill but I also love Cup 4 Cup).   
  • Melt Organic is always my favorite (healthy) butter replacement
  • I have switched to using cashew milk more so than almond milk because we may have an almond sensitivity in the family too.  (ugh)
