Our gluten free biscuit recipe uses chocolate as the sweetener. By doing so, these squidgy chocolate gluten free biscuits have a lower sugar content so you can enjoy your afternoon treat without feeling guilty.
Plus, they are only 166 calories per biscuit! This gluten free biscuit recipe makes 15 biscuits and the combination of dark chocolate and coconut makes them taste just like one of those classic chocolate bars…
We recommend chilling the biscuits twice so that they keep their shape during the baking process but if you’re in a hurry you could only chill them once.
Our gluten free biscuit recipe is so easy to follow you could let the kids help out. You just have to chuck all the ingredients a big bowl and combine using an electric mixer. Be sure to supervise the kids for this step and then let them have fun rolling the biscuit mixture into balls.
