Gluten-Free Timbits

Posted on: November 6, 2012

Last Friday I had a little visitor for the night, our grand-daughter, that goes by the name Holly! We didn’t have much time Friday night to bake or play as we had important things to do like shop for ingredients and watch a bit of telly! But Saturday morning our feet hit the ground running! Holly, like most kids loves to bake. I have an apron here for the girls to wear when we do bake and by the looks of it, it’s seen a cookie or three!

Holly is celiac so that means no gluten for her and she is my perfect excuse to bake goodies! I won’t bake them just for me but for Holly I’d bake all day! The other family members don’t mind when we do either! So here’s a recipe for Gluten-free timbits, make a double batch and freeze them! I usually do a double batch of most of my baking and then I usually have something in the freezer! Here it is:


  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon for topping
  • 1 1/4 cups of Bisquick gluten-free baking mix
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp of melted butter, marg or coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk or any milk you can have with 1/2 tsp vinegar added to it
  • 1 egg,beaten


  1. In a deep pan, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 375. In a shallow bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients until smooth. Shape dough into balls. Carefully drop balls into the hot oil. Fry 1-3 minutes or until golden brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels. Immediately roll in cinnamon sugar.
