Any time I make these biscuits, I have to know that about half of them will probably vanish while they are still warm. My husband absolutely loves them and will grab one from the baking sheet before they even have the chance to cool.

These are the perfect biscuits to make with breakfast, but are also lovely alongside a bowl of soup.

The Best Gluten-Free Drop Biscuits | These fluffy breakfast drop biscuits are the favorites of the household. Even my husband, who doesn’t care about eating grain or gluten-free – can’t stop eating them!

To begin, you’ll preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In your mixing bowl, sift almond flour, coconut flour and tapioca flour, along with baking powder, baking soda and sea salt together.

sifting ingredients

Add in some cold butter pieces and use a pastry blender to cut the butter in until it is crumbly. There should be no pieces larger than a pea.

cutting butter into dry ingredients

In a small bowl, whisk a couple eggs. Add some coconut milk and lemon juice and stir them together.

Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and gently stir until the ingredients are combined. Coconut flour is extremely absorbent, so at first this may seem more like a batter than a dough. Let it rest for 5 minutes to thicken up.

Using a muffin scoopscoop the batter onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Place the biscuits about 2 inches apart.

The dough may be a little sticky. If you have any issues with the dough sticking to the scoop, sprinkle a little tapioca flour into the scoop in between scooping the biscuits.

Bake the gluten-free biscuits for 12-14 minutes, or until the biscuits are just lightly golden on top. Transfer them to a rack to cool.

FAQ: I am often asked if this recipe can be made with other flours, like all almond flour. The short answer: NO

While there are many other recipes out there for alternate flours, this particular recipe will not turn out the same if you do not use the flours indicated. If you change the flours, you will not have the same results.
