Having grown up with a Mom from the south and spending part of my childhood in Tennessee and Kentucky, biscuits and gravy were a weekend way of life. 

I remember visiting my Aunt Patty in Arkansas often and if she was making breakfast, it included gravy.

I remember her even making a chocolate gravy once and it changed my life, lol!

After going gluten free I needed a gluten free biscuits and gravy recipe that would take me back to my childhood. 

You will need to start by making my Easy Gluten Free Vegan Biscuit Recipe . This recipe is sooo darn simple and made with just a handful of pantry staples. What I love about it is that you can roll them out for flaky layered biscuits, or simply drop them on a baking sheet for drop biscuits.

Is gravy gluten free?

Traditional gravy is NOT gluten free. Gravy needs flour and unless it is a gluten-free gravy, it’s not safe for those sensitive to wheat and gluten. 

How do you thicken gravy without gluten?

It’s easy! You will need a high quality gluten free all purpose flour. You can use white rice flour, but I have found it to not work as well. My go-to for this gravy recipe is Better Batter Original Blend.

You can also use my homemade flour blend, but I really prefer Better Batter!

What can I use instead of flour in gravy?

You will need to swap the traditional flour for a high quality gluten free flour. 

What is the best thickener for gluten-free gravy?

Better Batter All Purpose Flour is the best thickener I have use for gluten-free gravy. If you need something right away, my gluten free all purpose flour blend will work. You can use white rice flour, but that would not be my first choice.

Ingredients needed to make gluten free sausage gravy

1 16 oz package of ground breakfast sausage: My favorite brands are Swaggerty’s mild sausage or Butcherbox ground breakfast sausage.

1/4 cup gluten free flour: Better Batter Original Blend is the best for this. You can also use My All Purpose Flour Blend or rice flour, but rice flour doesn’t give as great of results as the flour blend. I have tested this recipe with my grain free flour blend and it works for the biscuits and the gravy too if you are looking for a paleo and grain free version.

1 cups coconut milk: You can use regular milk if you are not dairy free. I recommend a thick milk for this recipe. Almond milk, I feel is a little too thin. Make sure it is unsweetened and unflavored!

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp granulated garlic

Paprika for garnish
