Low-FODMAP ‘Copycat’ Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version

I’m starting to really have fun with copycat low-FODMAP recipes.  I love Starbucks baked goods, so I first created my low-FODMAP Coffee Cake, to be similar to Starbucks.  Then my low-FODMAP Chocolate Cake Pops and low-FODMAP Chocolate Chunk Muffins.  But it really took on another life with my low-FODMAP Starbucks Copycat Iced Lemon loaf.

Now, I think I’ll tackle savory delights.  Here is a recipe for Low-FODMAP Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits; Gluten-free. This is my daughter’s favorite part about visits to Red Lobster, and I can’t argue with her.  Except I can no longer eat them with all the garlic!  So I am loving this copycat low-FODMAP Copycat Cheddar Bay biscuit recipe.

I hope you love it too.

Low-FODMAP ‘Copycat’ Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits; Gluten-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Serves: 12-15 biscuits depending on size

Prep Time:12 minutes

Bake Time:10-12 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Bake 400 F


  • 2 cups all-purpose gluten-free Bisquick (or another gluten-free biscuit mix with low-FODMAP ingredients)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil
    • I used butter
  • 1/2 cup low-FODMAP milk (such as almond or lactose-free)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    • 1/2 cup is about 40 g, one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1-2 Tb garlic infused olive oil, or regular olive oil for a non-garlic flavored biscuit
  • about 2 Tb finely chopped fresh parsley or 3/4 Tb chopped dried parsley


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 F
  • Line a regular cookie sheet with a baking mat or parchment, or spray with nonstick spray
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together low-FODMAP Bisquick, salt and cayenne (if using)
  • In a smaller bowl, mix the vinegar into the low-FODMAP milk to create low-FODMAP buttermilk
  • Whisk the large egg into the milk mixture
  • Add the milk mixture to the Bisquick and stir
  • Then add the melted butter to combine.  You may wish to use your hands
  • Knead or stir in the cheese
  • Use a trigger ice cream scoop or a 1/4 c measure to portion out 12-15 biscuits onto the sheet
    • the dough may be crumbly, it is OK to smooth out the tops of the low-FODMAP biscuits with your hands
  • Bake about 12 minutes (oven times will vary)
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic infused oil with the parsley
  • Once baked, remove from oven and brush with the garlic infused oil/parsley mixture
  • Serve immediately (can also be chilled until ready to serve- reheat in an 250 F oven for 10 minutes)

  • These low-FODMAP Cheddar Bay Biscuits melt in your mouth.  Soooo good.

  1. Hi. I am new to this, but I have read that gluten is not FODMAP. You can use gluten free flour, but depending on the grain you can still be getting FoDMAP

    1. VLT,
      You are correct, thank you for your comment. Not all gluten-free flours are safe, which is why we always suggest a gluten-free AND low-FODMAP flour choice. You can check out our low-FODMAP Bake Off Blog for a bit more information on gluten-free flours and low-FODMAP Baking!
      In this recipe we recommend gluten-free Bisquick, which does contain low-FODMAP ingredients.
      Enjoy the biscuits!

  2. So good

    These were delicious! We devoured them. I used King Arthur Measure for Measure flour and 2 tsp baking powder for the “Bisquick” mix, added 1 tbsp chives for an onion flavor, and baked 20 minutes in my oven. Recipe went in my recipe box!

    1. YAY! So glad to hear this feedback it is wonderful 🙂

    1. Hi Julie!
      So happy you enjoyed the recipe! If you tolerate the fat that the biscuits contain (this is often an IBS trigger), then you could safely consume more of these biscuits from a FODMAP standpoint. Enjoy the next time and stay in touch with us!! 🙂

  3. Family loved these

    I made these to go on top of a vegetable pot pie for my mom who is following low fodmap. They are delicious! Definitely saving this recipe.
