The Easiest Gluten Free Pumpkin Biscuits

These super easy, gluten-free, and healthy 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 healthy biscuits:

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

How to Make These Pumpkin Biscuits

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  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!

  2. 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!
