Are biscuits healthy or junk?
Biscuits filled with unhealthy ingredients are junk. However, our AIP Air Fryer Drop Biscuits use whole food ingredients as well as nutrient dense and anti-inflammatory flours. These are a much better option especially if you are looking for egg free, gluten free or nut free (aside from coconut) biscuits. They are golden brown and crisp on the outside but fluffy on the inside.

Air Fryer Recommendations
I’m currently using an older air fryer model from Costco. It’s like this model. However, the capacity is small, and the machine take up a lot of space. I’d prefer to have a toaster oven/air fryer. It can be used for multiple purposes and has a larger capacity for cooking or baking. I’ve seen really good reviews on this model.
Can I freeze these Vegan Gluten Free Biscuits?
Yes! These freeze shockingly well. To freeze, use an ice cream scoop to place the drop biscuits on a parchment lined plate or baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the freezer. Once the dough is frozen, you can place them in a bag or resealable container.
Can you air fry biscuits frozen?
Yes! You can always defrost them but why bother. They taste great even when baked from frozen dough. I can’t tell the difference between the fresh made and frozen biscuits. Honestly, they taste the same as if you made them fresh! When ready to eat, place frozen biscuits in the air fryer for 25 minutes at 330 degrees. It’s pretty much like the instructions for freshly made biscuits, but it just needs an extra 5 minutes in the air fryer.
