Gluten Free orange and vanilla biscuits

An easy and quick recipe for gluten free biscuits

My weakness are biscuits and cookies, I love them since I am a kid. You can imagine the tragedy when I discovered that I am gluten intolerant and most of my favourite biscuits are only available in gluten option. After some tries, I discovered that I love rice flour because it is light. However, it is very difficult to work with. If you love biscuits and you want to bake gluten-free, then try this orange vanilla flavoured ones. Happiness is guaranteed.

Ingredients for one person

  • 200 gr Rice flour
  • 1 egg
  • 75 gr Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla flavour
  • 60 gr seed oil


  1. Start by whisking the eggs with the sugar in a metal or glass bowl until you reach a foam. An electric whisk will be very useful but the same result can be obtained with patience and manual whisk Image 1 and 2.
  2. Add the oil and the vanilla flavour to the bowl. Grate the orange zest and stir with the whisk Image 3.
  3. Lastly, add the baking powder and flour. Here you need to stir the mixture with a fork until it becomes solid. Then knead the dough with your hands Image 4.
  4. Form a ball with the dough and let it rest in the fridge for 30 min. In the meantime, prepare the baking tray by placing on it a baking paper sheet or a silicon baking sheet Image 5.
  5. Take a wooden cutting board. Remove the dough from the fridge and take a hand full of dough.
  6. Roll it the dough into a small roll with your hands on the wooden cutting board.
  7. Cut the dough into small cubes with a knife. Place the raw biscuit on the baking tray Image 6.
  8. Continue with points 5, 6 and 7 until you turn all the dough into small cubes.
  9. Bake the biscuits for 10 min at 180°C with ventilation.
  10. Let the biscuits rest for 10 min and enjoy!
