Herb Scallion Drop Biscuits

biscuits Herb Scallion Drop Biscuits

These aren’t southern biscuits- notice the absence of shortening, lard, or butter. I made these with olive oil, herbs, and scallions instead. So even though they may not be traditional, they make a fantastic accompaniment to dinner. They are also great eaten the next day for lunch with a side of tomatoes and fresh basil.

Herb biscuits are delicious and can be made with whatever herbs are overflowing in your herb garden right now. Sage and thyme would be a great combination too!

If you premix the dry ingredients these biscuits take no time at all to throw together. You can also freeze the biscuits and warm them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes (or until warm).


2 cups gluten free flour

-(I used 3/4 cup sorghum flour, 1/4 cup flax seed meal, 1/4 cup millet flour, and 3/4 tapioca starch)

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 Tablespoon fresh basil, chopped

1 Tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped

1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar and 1 cup milk (or use 1 cup buttermilk)

3 Tablespoons olive oil

2 Tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)

1/4 scallions (green parts only)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with unsalted butter. In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the milk, vinegar, oil, scallions, and parmesan cheese. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and stir until just combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes. Serve warm.

  5. These look really good…I think I’ll giv ethem a try :)

  6. These biscuits look great! I’m definitely going to have to try them.

    I’ve got a question posed on my blog about flour brands and where to buy. Would you please stop by and give me your two cents? Thanks a bunch!

  7. Hi,
    I tried these bicuits for dinner and I think I made a mistake by using GF All-Purpose flour instead of the flours you used. I had to use a lot more buttermilk because the mixture was way too dry. They tasted okay, but the texture was a little weird. I will definately try them again with the flour called for in the recipe. I also made the crustless spinach quiche and it was great! I have made several recipes from your site and have loved them all! Thanks for motivating me on this GF journey!

  8. Kimberly, That stinks! Sorry you had trouble with my recipe! GF flours absorb liquid differently that is true. It had to be a liquid:flour thing- it happens to me when I bake sometimes too. What is GF All Purpose flour?

  9. Hi Natalie,
    GF All-Purpose flour is supposed to be similar to regular all-purpose flour. I don’t usually use it, but got lazy and didn’t feel like using several different flours. I have tried it in other things without success so I won’t use it again. I don’t think it was your recipe that was the trouble. I love your site!

  10. These look delish!

  11. These look fantastic!

  12. Natalie, these sound and look really delicious!

  13. Made these yesterday morning for the kids’ lunches/snacks for school. They turned out great! The ones I slightly overbaked were fine, too. I was pleasantly shocked to have our son on the autism spectrum accept one & say, “Mmm. This smells like pizza.” He actually took it to school for snack, brown & green flecks and all & enjoyed it! Thank you for another great recipe!

    I used the smallest Pampered Chef scoop and it made 24 biscuits. Discovered that size biscuit is perfect for a slice or 2 of pepperoni, too!
