Biscuits are so quick and easy to make and they come out perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside every time! You can make them in 10 minutes in the air fryer and they are gluten free!
- 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour – like Bob’s Red Mill or King Aruthur’s
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg – beaten
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- Mix up the dry ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl – Gluten free flour, baking powder, garlic powder, dried parsley, kosher salt.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients – buttermilk, egg, melted butter.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix it all together. I have found that a fork works best for mixing this biscuit dough. Then fold in the cheddar cheese, if using.
- Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F or 380 degrees F (if your air fryer doesn’t preheat to 375). Once it is ready, place an air fryer liner into the air fryer basket and spray it with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Use an ice cream scoop (about 3 tablespoons in size) or your can measure out 1/4 cup of the dough and drop it in portions into the air fryer basket place the biscuits about 2 inches apart from another. Spray the biscuits with more cooking spray (I used olive oil spray) and cook them at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or 380 degrees for 7-8 minutes. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer. Continue until you have cooked all of the biscuits.
- While the biscuits are cooking, mix up the topping by combining all ingredients into a small bowl.
- Remove the biscuits from the air fryer, brush them with some melted butter mixture and enjoy!
- Make sure to use a gluten free flour that contains xanthan gum. Bob’s Red Mill One To One Flour or King Arthur’s Measure for Measure flours are the ones I used to test this recipe.
- Do not over mix the biscuit dough. I found that using a fork to mix the dough helped incorporate all of the ingredients without needing to overmix it.
- Use an ice cream scoop or a small measuring cup (1/4 cup) to evenly measure the biscuits when you bake them so they cook at the same time.
- Brush the biscuits with the melted herb, garlic butter immediately after they are done cooking so the butter really sticks to them and makes them extra Butterly and delicious.
- Gluten free flours like almond flour, chickpea flour or coconut flour did not work in this recipe.
- Once you have cooked the biscuits and allowed them to cool completely, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should keep for up to 2 days. You can easily reheat them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds or in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for 2-3 minutes.
