When it comes to biscuits, we have quite the selection. From flavored biscuits, to self-rising biscuits, to drop biscuits, and pretty much everything in between. If you’re looking for a biscuit recipe, we’ve got you covered.
And that includes in the gluten-free department.
These hearty biscuits are made with a blend of our gluten-free flour, yellow cornmeal, and our ancient grains flour blend, to give them a soft texture, a subtle nutty flavor, and just a hint of sweetness from maple syrup.Gluten-Free Ancient Grains Biscuits are perfect with a pot of chili or alongside a fresh salad.

They’re a delicious treat no matter your occasion. Now, let’s see how to make them.
Gluten-Free Ancient Grains Drop Biscuits
We’ll start by preheating the oven to 425ºF, then lightly greasing a baking sheet (or lining it with parchment paper) and setting it aside while we prep the biscuit dough.
In a large bowl, whisk together:
*Not all cornmeal is gluten-free. These biscuits taste great with either style of cornmeal, but if you keep a gluten-free diet, you may want to double-check which brand you’re using.
Use a fork, pastry blender, or electric mixer to work in 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup) of butter, mixing until everything is crumbly with some pea-sized pieces of butter remaining.
In a separate bowl (or measuring cup), whisk together:
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1 large egg
Stir into the dry ingredients until just combined.
Drop golf-ball sized portions onto the prepared baking sheet about 2″ apart. A tablespoon cookie scoop, generously filled, is helpful for this.
Bake the biscuits for 12 to 14 minutes, until they’re light golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and serve warm.
As we mentioned, we adore serving these biscuits with a comforting soup or stew. Here are some of our favorites if you’re in need of some inspiration:
