The Most Amazing "Healthy" Biscuits

I've been on a quest to use every random ingredient in my pantry.  This journey has made for some interesting meals in the past, but when I got to a bag of brown rice flour, I turned to pinterest in hopes of finding a weekend treat I could make.  After reading through several recipes and reviews, I decided to give "My Favorite Gluten-free biscuits" from Domestifluff a try.  The only ingredient I lacked was buttermilk--a small investment for what promised to be an amazing turnout.

I was not disappointed.


And don't think I'm not a biscuit connoisseur.  In fact, my former favorite recipe was from the Pioneer Woman (sorry, Ree!) but it contained crisco and lottttts of butter.  This recipe calls for 4 TBS--not too bad.  But could they top PW?!


The dough is very sticky, so I decided to make small biscuits because it was easier to manage.  They came out perfectly.  I'm talking melt-in-your-mouth, fluffy and flaky.  Oh, and did I mention they are gluten free and freeze well too?  Bonus and motivation not to eat all 20 mini-biscuits at one sitting.



They took me about 20 minutes from start to finish, which was even faster than I expected.

Some of the reviews stated that they work just as well with almond milk instead of buttermilk.  I may give that a try next time!

So cheers to pantry shopping and delicious (healthier version of) treats!
