gluten-free honey biscuits


gluten free and sugar free biscuits

Ingredients (20 – 25 biscuits)

  • 300g gluten-free rice flour as used here/gluten-free plain white flour
  • (if using rice flour) 1 tsp. Xantham gum
  • 250g butter
  • 2 free range medium sized eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg


Preheat oven to 180 degrees °C/ gas mark 4

Add the flour, xanthum gum and butter/vegetable spread into a large bowl and rub together with your fingertips to resemble breadcrumbs (or you can use a food processor). Add the eggs, honey, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and whisk to create a consistent mixture.

Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Once firm, remove the dough.

Spread a large sheet of baking parchment over the work surface and turn the dough onto it. Dust with flour and then using a rolling pin, roll to a thickness of 0.5cm. Use a circle cookie cutter to create the biscuits, using up all of the dough.

Using butter/dairy free spread, lightly grease a baking sheet and lift the shapes onto it and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.

Remove from the oven, cool and enjoy!

    Honey is a delicious, healthier alternative to sugar. And it’s especially great when you got freshly made honey from the beekeeper itself! Great recipe.

    My auntie lives a very healthy lifestyle. I think it would be a great idea for me to bake some of these biscuits and give them to her as a gift. I think she’d love it. Thanks for sharing this recipe! 🙂

    Just wanted to say that these cookies were really great 🙂 they still are after 3 days! I did away with the Xantham Gum and used some corn starch instead. I think it worked out pretty well! Thanks Vicki
