If you do need to avoid gluten, these are the best gluten free biscuits I’ve had! Super yummy! This recipe is adapted from The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen.

1 1/2 cups sorghum flour

1/2 cup white rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 cup milk (I used unsweetened soy milk)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place the flours, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk together.

Add the butter and cut in with a pastry cutter or your hands until small pea-sized crumbs form. Add milk and gently but quickly stir together with a fork. Using a large spoon, scoop out biscuits onto parchment paper covered cookie sheets. This should make about 6-8 biscuits.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
