These Gluten Free Pumpkin Biscuits are a classic recipe here at Lexi’s Clean Kitchen since around 2014! We love them because they can be made as a sweet version, that is more like a scone, or a savory version that is perfect for serving with dinner.  They are also equally great as a shortcake, a cobbler, or on top of a soup. Did we mention they are easy to make, too?

Here is what you need to make them:

  • Almond Flour
  • Tapioca Flour 
  • Coconut Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Cinnamon (omit for savory)
  • Fine Sea Salt
  • Butter
  • Pumpkin Puree
  • Honey (omit for savory)
  • Egg

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until well blended.
  3. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and using your hands rub the butter into the mix until it is completely combined, with no visable pieces of butter remaining. 
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together the pumpkin puree, honey, and egg. Pour it into the butter and flour mixture and combine until a smooth dough forms.
  5. Using your hands, roll the dough into 6 balls, each about 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake for 18-20  minutes, or until golden and crusty all around and firm to the touch, with no soft dough remaining in the center.

    Would ghee work in place of butter? I reeaalllly hope so because they sound delish!

  18. Lisa Hall says:

    I made these using a coconut oil and ghee blend (from Thrive) instead of butter and worked well. Not quite as biscuity looking but tastey!
