Gluten Free Homemade Biscuits

These homemade biscuits are not only gluten-free, but made with nourishing, wholesome ingredients that will totally satisfy your traditional biscuit cravings! Spread with some jelly, mashed raspberries, or simply some butter and you won’t believe you’re eating something that’s actually nutritious! 

Gluten Free Homemade Biscuits

I’m extra excited for today’s recipe, for a few reasons, but primarily because when I was pregnant with Roma, I had an addiction to breakfast biscuits (particularly from this one restaurant in Jersey City) and now, I have a healthy version that I can make to satisfy that craving at home – and it’s all thanks to Rachel Mansfield and her debut cookbook, Just the Good Stuff (JTGS).

If you don’t know Rachel already, she’s the woman behind the Instagram account rachLmansfield, where she shares healthy inspiration for eats, living, motherhood, and more. She bakes the most delectable goods and they are all made with wholesome, nourishing ingredients. She also recently came out with a podcast series called Just the Good Stuff – give it a listen here!

Gluten Free Homemade Biscuits

In her debut cookbook, she offers much more than just baked goods, though – there are savory recipes, snacking recipes, and easy weeknight dinners. If you want recipes that are nostalgic of all your favorite foods, but made healthier, look no further – I’m talking healthy Pop-Tarts, people!

And you all know that I’m not a baker, so if I’m able to whip up a baking recipe and make it look this good, you know her recipes are foolproof!

I did make one change to these Gluten Free Homemade Biscuits, though – I brought the wet ingredients down by 1/4 cup, because I felt that the consistency was better for what I was looking for in a biscuit! Also, I recommend letting them dry for 10 minutes before cutting them, otherwise they’ll be a bit too crumbly – letting them rest let’s them crisp and firm up!

Roma and Luca BOTH loved these, they had them as a side when we were doing a breakfast for lunch situation, so they’re toddler and baby approved! Rachel’s cookbook is out today, so grab yourself a copy!

Gluten Free Homemade Biscuits

Congrats to Rachel on Just the Good Stuff and I hope you all love these biscuits as much as I did – jelly smeared, butter melted, or however you decide to enjoy them!



Gluten Free Homemade Biscuits


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened nondairy milk I used almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup gluten-free oat flour plus more for dusting
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free tapioca flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed butter at room temperature
  • Avocado oil ghee, or melted butter, for brushing


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine the nondairy milk and apple cider vinegar.
  • 3. In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, almond flour, tapioca flour, salt, and baking powder and mix well.
  • 4. Add the butter to the dry ingredients, and cut it into the flour with a fork until small pieces form.
  • 5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well. The dough will be sticky and a little wet.
  • 6. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and sprinkle more flour on top of the dough (2 to 3 tablespoons, depending on how wet the dough is).
  • 7. Form the dough into a disk that’s about 3 inches thick, and slice the disk into 8 pieces with a knife. Form each piece into a biscuit shape (round or square).
  • 8. Transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between them, and brush the tops with avocado oil.
  • 9. Bake until the biscuits are just golden, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm. Leftover biscuits will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Reheat in the oven or microwave once thawed.

TWIN MAMAS - anything I'm missing?! 👇🏼👇🏼 #twinpregnancy #hospitalbag #31weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #31weekspregnant #expectingtwins #identicaltwins #identicaltwinpregnancy ⁣


we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
