Gluten Free Tea Biscuits are a great way to start the day, perhaps with eggs or fruit and coffee. These can be made dairy free and with or without raisins, as you wish.
On the rare occasion when my husband and I have the opportunity for a leisurely breakfast at home, or we’ve had overnight guests who can linger in the morning, we enjoy a “special” breakfast. Rather than the usual granola or smoothie, our special breakfast might be pancakes with maple syrup, omelette, frittata, or breakfast sausage with fried eggs and these tea biscuits. Then we enjoy finishing it off with a nice cup of coffee.
Raisins are Optional
I’ve worked hard to get as close as I can to replicating homemade tea biscuits from before my gluten free days. Charlie likes them with raisins, so I try to remember to include them. You may add or delete them as you wish.
Dairy Free Gluten Free Tea Biscuits
If you need to be dairy-free, you can substitute the butter in this recipe with lard. The recipe will turn out fine, but butter adds a nice flavour if you can have it.
Tea Biscuit Topper
Top these tea biscuits as you wish. I’m very glad to be seeing more lower-sugar “jam” recipes lately like this Strawberry Chia Jam or jams that use natural sugars like this Easy Jam Recipe. We enjoy raw honey with warm tea biscuits fresh from the oven. Nut butters are probably the best sugar-free option with tea biscuits. Of course, they’re also great plain with soft, runny eggs!
