Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits

Oh, buttermilk biscuits! They must be one of my all-time favorite meals. I mean, sides… Their light, fluffy, buttery goodness has had me hooked since childhood.

Ever since cutting out dairy a few years ago, I gave up hope on finding a good buttermilk biscuit. For some reason, fluffy biscuits are pretty impossible for this southern girl to handle dairy-free. But ever since the GAPS diet, my handling of dairy has improved.

So I cheat every now and again most of the time and make myself these luscious beauties… Full of butter and buttermilk, and topped with a beautiful melting dab of butter.

Aren’t they lovely?

Sometimes I seriously wonder if the reason I love them so much is because of that butter… and the fact that they go perfectly with gravy on top.

 If you have problems with dairy, these can be made without it, but they won’t be as fluffy… Just be forewarned.

Write a review
  1. 1 c. brown rice flour
  2. 1 c. oat or sorghum flour
  3. 1 c. tapioca starch
  4. 1/2 t. salt
  5. 1 t. guar gum
  6. 1 T. baking powder (check out how to make your own!)
  7. 1/2 c. cold butter, cut into 1 T. chunks
  8. 3/4 c. buttermilk
  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter, or two knives, until it's evenly pea-sized.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk, stirring only until everything comes together.
  5. Place dough in 1/4 cupful amounts onto cookie sheet. Flatten if desired.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden browned.
  1. For dairy-free, replace the butter with lard. Coconut oil won't work, and olive oil is ok to use, but the biscuits won't be very fluffy.
  2. Replace the buttermilk with 3/4 cup dairy-free milk (like coconut milk) and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, this will also cause you to lose some of the fluffiness, as it will not be as thick as with regular buttermilk.

  1. My husband is REALLY into making biscuits from scratch.. they’re pretty much what he’s known for. But these look just as delicious!! <3

    Anyhoo, I found your blog through a fellow blogger, and thought I would stop by and say hi! It would totally make my day if you did the same.. or better yet, keep in touch! <3 – http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

    1. Hi Gingi, thanks for stopping by and saying hi. 😉 I must admit, I’m not geeky at all – but your recipes sure do look good! I love that you were able to get donor milk for your little girl! What an amazing blessing!

        1. I definitely understand. I’ve got four running around the kitchen “helping” and another on the way, as well. 😉 Life just gets more and more interesting!

  2. Winter is the perfect time for biscuits! What a comfort food. My mom used to make them all the time from scratch, but this recipe is awesome because you are bringing biscuits to those who can’t do gluten. Good job! And thank you for submitting your link to Family Fun Fridays! Your recipe will be featured this week! I am hosting recipes over at brittalafont.com and the post will go live Thursday. I all be pinning your recipe to my FFF board as well. Congratulations!

    1. Thanks so much, Britta! My mom made scratch biscuits all the time too, so when I went gluten-free I knew I needed to figure them out! They are a necessary comfort food. 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by and for the feature!

  3. I love buttermilk drop biscuits – I never, ever would have thought it’d be possible to get that fluffiness gluten-free! Thanks so much for linking up to Awesome Life Friday – I hope you’ll come back again this week!
