Gluten-Free Drop Biscuits

So remember that homemade lentil soup I posted a few days ago?  While the soup is quite delicious on its own, I wanted to have some sort of bread to accompany it.  I came across a recipe for gluten-free drop biscuits, and since I just bought gluten-free flour from Trader Joe’s, I figured it would be the perfect recipe to put the flour to the test.

The key to making these gluten-free drop biscuits is to not leave them in the oven too long, or they will become too hard and chewy.  These biscuits are also dairy-free, so if you are vegan you can enjoy these as well!  Of course, I ended up slathering butter all over them, because what’s a good gluten-free biscuit without a little butter?

Whether you choose to use this biscuits as a soup dipping vehicle or just enjoy them with some honey, they are a definite must-make.

Preheat your oven to 425F.  Add all your dry ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Add your almond milk, water and oil to the dry mixture and beat until blended.
