Grain Free Buttermilk Biscuits

buttermilk buiscuits-01

When you begin a grain free (or gluten free) lifestyle the thing most of us dwell on is all our favorite foods we won’t be able to eat. And for most people when they are just starting out they’ll try recipes or alternative products and be disappointed that they aren’t exactly the same…

I will be honest, if you’re looking for a replacement for those light, flaky, artificially butter flavored biscuits you pop out of a can and bake, keep looking… this recipe isn’t for you. However, if you know what a true homemade biscuit really tastes like, this grain free alternative is very very similar.  And when I say similar, I mean YUMMY!

We can’t compare gluten containing wheat products 1:1 with grain free alternatives.. you’re setting yourself up for failure. As much as I “wish” we can all move past these treats the fact is sometimes we NEED a little something to make us feel normal. Make us feel like it’s not so hard.

These amazing little biscuits have gotten my hubby & I through a bad day, lessen the desire to eat poorly. Lessen the cravings for foods from our past, hopefully treats like these can help you push through too!

    I really have a difficult time with Almond flours. May I substitute coconut flour or a gluten-free flour blend for almond? Thank you.

    I don’t do dairy, and I found that if I used full fat coconut milk, and added a tablespoon of apple cidar or white vinegar to it, and let it sit for fifteen minutes or so, it was a good substitution for the buttermilk. Very good receipe, esp. with a cup of tea and a little dob of fresh fruit preserves, yum!

    I’m assuming these can be made ahead and frozen/thawed/reheated? Any advice for this? Making a bunch of these for our Thanksgiving this year. They look fabulous!
