Biscuits: Gluten-Free


These are so simple, so tasty, so perfect. With Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Flour made with garbanzo and fava bean flours it’s hard to believe these yummy delights are good for you!


2 cups all-purpose gluten free four (Bob’s Redmill)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons apple sauce
1 stick (1/2 cup) Earth Balance buttery spread
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening using two knives, a food processor or a hand mixer. Mixture should look crumbly. Combine applesauce, soy milk and vinegar and pour into flour mixture. Mix at a low speed to incorporate all ingredients. Drop by large spoonfuls on to a parchment-paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 425F for about 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden brown. The dough can be formed into hamburger rolls as well to go with veggie burgers. Makes about 12 biscuits. Use what you need and the rest can be frozen.

Gather up remaining dough and place it in wax paper. It will be soft and sticky but you can use the paper to roll it into a log, about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and twist the paper ends to seal and freeze. Remove from freezer and slice into 1/2 inch circles. It may be hard and you will need to let it soften a little before slicing.
