Quinoa Flour Gluten-Free Cheese Biscuits

Quinoa Flour Gluten-Free Cheese Biscuits

My family really enjoys biscuits but it is hard to have a recipe that works for all of our individual health needs. I was especially wanting to have a recipe that my husband would be able to eat with us. In order for that to be possible it needed to be a recipe which is grain free.  We ended up with these gluten-free cheese biscuits and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Quinoa Flour Gluten-Free Cheese Biscuits
  • 2¼ cups quinoa flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cold
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or put 1 Tbl. vinegar in a cup then fill with milk)
  • 1¼ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, garlic powder and salt. Cut in coconut oil and butter until coarse crumbs are formed. Lightly mix in grated cheese. Mix in buttermilk just until moist (dry spots here and there are ok – the biscuits will be tough if they are overmixed).
  2. Drop the biscuits onto a greased or lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until browned and golden.
  3. While the biscuits are baking, in a small bowl combine three tablespoons melted butter, ¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes, ¾ teaspoon garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Right when the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the butter/herb mixture over the biscuits evenly (alternately, you can dip the top of the biscuit into the butter mixture). Serve immediately.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE!!! I’ve never made biscuits; this was my first attempt. My husband and I were skeptical when they went in because they seemed so crumbly, so I really had to resist the urge to over-mix. We were SO thrilled with the results – the health factor, the taste, and the texture. Thank you for helping make eating well so delicious!
    p.s. These are WAY better than Red Lobster’s! (for those of you wondering).

    This looks very good,k my two granddaughters have gluten problems and they are on a gluten free diet and we had quinoa the other day and they loved it and I bet they would love these biscuits, thank you for sharing.. I wonder if it tastes anything like red lobsters which they miss terribly.
