Gluten Free Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

I don’t like a lot of classic Thanksgiving dishes like stuffing, gravy, or any veggies or casseroles. I normally eat a piece of turkey, a bit of this honey sweetened orange cranberry sauce and then load myself up with carbs. Lots and lots of carbs. Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, desserts, and as many dinner rolls and biscuits as I can sneak away without looking like a pig.

These gluten-free cheddar garlic biscuits are really more of a cross between bread and biscuits than true biscuits. I took a basic buttermilk biscuit recipe and added a full cup of grated cheddar and some garlic. There’s 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder in the biscuit dough and another 1/4 teaspoon in the garlic butter topping and while it doesn’t sound like much, it makes these biscuits plenty garlicky!

You can easily leave it out if you don’t like garlic but note that you will be able to taste the almond flour. Even with the garlic and cheddar, the taste of almond flour is there – but it’s not a bad thing!

If cheddar cheese isn’t your thing, feel free to experiment! I bet Gouda would be amazing and I’m thinking chives, green onions, or bacon pieces (why didn’t I think of that until now?!) would go really well in these biscuits. You can definitely get creative here!

These gluten-free cheddar garlic biscuits are also able to be grain-free. If you need them to be grain-free, use 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar and 1/16 teaspoon baking soda in place of the baking powder. Many brands of baking powder contain cornstarch, which is gluten-free but not grain-free, and is used as a filler to keep the ingredients in the baking powder separated.

For Thanksgiving dessert, give this gluten free gingerbread a try! It’s grain-free as well and has a zingy ginger cream cheese frosting that’s hard to resist!
