Red Lobsters biscuits are beautiful cheddary biscuits with a hint of garlic. They started serving them as "fresh baked hot cheese garlic bread." The biscuits became so famous that Red Lobster now sells cheddar bay biscuit mix at stores.
If you have food allergies though, you can't enjoy the biscuit OR the mix. You just get to drool as servers walk past you with those amazing smelling biscuits.
And silently seeth. But there is a solution! You can now have a nice hot buttery biscuit that's ready in under 30 minutes!

We love you too so we are including some substitutions for dairy free and gluten free biscuits. Because everyone should be able to enjoy biscuits!
You'll need some gluten free self rising flour to make this recipe. Click here to view our recipe for gluten free self rising flour or places you can purchase it.
You are welcome to substitute dairy free butter in this recipe. It works well. We used Earth Balance.
If you can have dairy, you are welcome to use regular cheddar. If not, there are many good dairy free brands that you can substitute. You'll want shredded cheddar cheese.
Our recipe calls for one cup buttermilk. You can use one cup of dairy free milk, taking out one tablespoon of the milk and replacing it with one tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar added.

Five Ingredient Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits
- 2 cups self rising flour
- ½ tsp garlic powder, cayenne powder and parsley flakes
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup buttermilk
- ½ cup + 2 tbsp butter, divided
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt the butter, then set aside. In a mixing bowl, stir together the self rising flour, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp cayenne pepper and shredded cheese. Stir in ½ cup melted butter and the 1 cup buttermilk and stir just until combined. (You will use the remaining 2 tbsp melted butter in a minute!)Lightly grease a ¼ cup measuring cup or scoop. Scoop the dough ¼ cup at a time onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving several inches of space between biscuits. Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately brush biscuits evenly with the remaining butter, then sprinkle a little bit of garlic powder and parsley flakes on top.
