Easy Gluten-Free Biscuits

  • Author: Fork & Beans
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 8 Biscuits 1x


  • 2 c. Cara’s All-Purpose Gluten-Free flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. raw sugar (you can omit if you want)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 5 Tbsp. non-hydrogenated shortening, chilled
  • 1 c. nondairy milk
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, xanthan gum, baking soda and powder, sugar (if using), and sea salt.
  3. With a pastry blender of the back of a fork, cut in the shortening into the dry mixture until it becomes like a coarse meal.
  4. Stir in the nondairy milk and vinegar with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  5. Dump the dough onto a counter lined with parchment paper and gently work it into a ball with lightly floured hands (dough may be slightly sticky).
  6. Gently press dough into a circle about 1″ high and 8″ in diameter. Cut out biscuits using a 2 1/2″ biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on the baking sheet. Gather the dough scraps together and cut more biscuits until all dough is used.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Serve immediately with butter of choice, raw honey and/or jam.
