Gluten Free Dairy Free Buttermilk Biscuits

Ingredients

2 cups blanched almond flour+ 1- 2 more Tbsp. if needed
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup Buttermilk (mix ¼ C milk alternative with ¼ t white vinegar

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2
Make the buttermilk. Stir together the milk alternative, I used soy milk, and vinegar. Let stand.
3
Stir together the almond flour, cornstarch, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and sugar until well combined.
4
Add in the butter and cut in with a pastry cutter (a fork will work also) until well blended.
5
Stir in the eggs and buttermilk. If your dough seems a little bit wet so add 1-2 more Tbsp of almond flour. You want your dough to be sticky but not wet.
6
Lightly grease a pan, roll dough into golf-ball sized balls, and place close together but not quite touching. The dough makes 10-12 biscuits.
7
Lightly press each biscuit to slightly flatten so they look more like biscuits as opposed to a roll.
8
Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Why did you name these this way?

They're NOT buttermilk, if non-dairy. If honest, these would be named "GF, DF Soured Nut Milk Biscuits".

Just easier to call them GF, DF Biscuits.

Rachel-
These ARE gluten free dairy free buttermilk biscuits because I made my own dairy free buttermilk, or buttermilk replacement. Soured nut milk biscuits do not sound good.
