Gluten Free Cheddar Biscuits (like Red Lobster!)

Many in our household have gone gluten free due to health issues and thankfully it hasn't been too much of a transition. We typically eat a whole foods diet anyway thanks to our garden we grow every year. I can & freeze our produce and cook most things from scratch, all while avoiding processed food.

Even still, there is always that longing for a delicious, warm roll or slice of bread. Thankfully, I've come across some great recipes using coconut flour, almond flour & flax meal, all of which are gluten free (and so much better for you than white flour!)

I was ecstatic the other day to try a new recipe that claimed it tasted just like Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits. If you have ever eaten at Red Lobster, their endless biscuits are to die for! They are warm, soft & melt in your mouth.  BUT if you have issues with gluten, they are a HUGE no-no!

Gluten Free Biscuit, Trim Healthy Mama S

I am here to tell you, after I tweaked the recipe a little, the result was a biscuit that tastes almost IDENTICAL to Red Lobster's mouth watering biscuits and yes, they are GLUTEN FREE!!! YAY!!! I even gave a bite to my picky eating husband and he assumed it came from Red Lobster! Score!

Also, double bonus, if you follow Trim Healthy Mama, these biscuits would be an S.

Ok ok, I'll shut up now and give you the recipe!

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flour
  • 6 oz sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted (1 tablespoon reserved for brushing after)
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and butter until evenly distributed.
  4. Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until there are no lumps.
  5. Fold in the cheese.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto a greased cookie sheet. (I made 9 biscuits)
  7. Bake for about 13 minutes until the edges of the biscuits are brown and the tops are golden.
  8. Brush top with additional melted butter out of the oven.

  1. Oh. M. G. I just tonight made a THM S NE clam chowder (subbed radish for potato and, wow! Let me tell you, I was very, very skeptical but it would fool anyone!) and said to my husband if I could just find an S version of the biscuits we'd be eating just as tasty a meal as we'd find at Red Lobster!!! Making this, AND more chowder, TOMORROW!!!

    1. Oh, I would love to hear about your THM Clam Chowder! :) I've subbed radishes before with great success. I hope you enjoyed these biscuits as much as we do!

  2. I'm so sorry to have fallen off the planet! I was 9 months pregnant at the time with my second and trying to squeeze every last minute of time in with my son while he was my "only" those last days...And now he's the best big brother in the world to his baby sister! Anyway, here's the link to the clam chowder. I've gotten RAVE reviews on this, give it a try!


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
