  • Author: This Mess is Ours
  • Prep Time: 18 mins
  • Cook Time: 12 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 10 biscuits 1x


  • 6 tablespoons very cold butter
  • ⅓ cup superfine brown rice flour
  • ⅓ cup sweet white rice flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 3 teaspoons Clabber Girl baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 23 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, light and dark green parts only
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese


  1. Slice the butter into small cubes, place them in a bowl, and place the bowl in the freezer to chill.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the brown rice flour, sweet white rice flour, tapioca flour, cornstarch, potato starch, xanthan gum, Clabber Girl baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk together until completely combined.
  4. Cut the cold butter pieces into the flour mixture using a pastry blender, two knives, or your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Add the buttermilk to the bowl and gently mix until the dough begins to come together. Once the dough has come together fold in the scallions and cheese until just incorporated.
  6. Lay a large piece of plastic wrap over your kitchen counter and turn the dough out on top of it. Working quickly, gather the dough into a mass and gently pat into a thickness of ¾-inch.
  7. Cut the dough into 2½-inch squares with a knife or into 2½-inch rounds with a floured biscuit cutter.
  8. Arrange the biscuits no more than 1-inch apart on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

    Isn’t there a better substitute for “xanthan gum”? It’s NOT good for you.

      You can try guar gum. 🙂

    These look scary good. As in, I wouldn’t be able to stop eating them.

      Matt – you are absolutely right! I ate a half pan of them by myself in an afternoon…then I made breakfast sandwiches for dinner out of the rest of them. I don’t even feel bad about it…ha!
