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. Rub the butter into the dry mix until it is completely combined.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the pumpkin, honey and egg and add it to the flour mixture.
  4. Drop biscuits on a sheet tray and bake!

Savory or Sweet

Follow the recipe as written to make this sweet. To make them savory, omit the cinnamon and honey and follow the rest of the ingredients and directions.

  1. I have actually been looking for something healthy and a little different to make for breakfast on Christmas morning, and I think these are it! They just look so warm and soft, and with a swipe of butter, perfect. (Pretend I didn’t say butter and healthy in the same sentence?) Can’t wait to try these!

  2. These look delicious!! Is there anything I could sub for the 3 tbsp butter? I’m mostly vegan and don’t include that in my diet, but I would LOVE to be able to try these biscuits!

  3. I just discovered this recipe, and I’ve already made it three times. They are so easy to make, yet so interesting and delicious.

  4. 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!

  5. These were delicious! A great thanksgiving addition that will permanently remain. And so easy to make! Thanks for making delicious, easy recipes that our whole family loves! Appreciate you!
