These are quick, easy, vegan biscuits. I especially like them with soup or vegetarian chili.

  • Stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine the oil and soy milk in a measuring cup. Pour into the dry ingredients all at once, and stir just until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake for 8 to10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the biscuits are browned on the top and bottom.

Loved 'em! I used all whole-wheat flour and I added a dollop of honey... the dough was sticky but I patted it out and cut the biscuits anyway... I'm just not crazy about "drop" anything... just used enough flour on the counter and dough to get the job done... they baked up fluffy and golden... I didn't think they were dense at all... they warmed up well too... I had them for a few breakfasts!:) Read More

I didn't care for these. All I could taste was baking powder. Although they were easy I won't be making them again. Read More

These were wonderful. I'd been addicted to making regular biscuits (J.P.'s from this site) and managed to severely deplete my all purpose flour supply. I used a cup of each, and used olive instead of canola oil. I also added 1 tsp. of white sugar. They were a little crumbly, but no more than your average drop biscuit. My son LOVED them, and they were great with the chicken and rice soup I made. Oh. I used regular 1% milk too. I'm not vegan, so soy milk just isn't in the pantry! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Good and VERY easy. I served them with gravy. Without any toppings I thought the flavor was a tiny bit lacking. If it weren't for the flavor I would have given them 5 stars. The texture was very moist a little dense but that is typical of whole wheat and one of the reasons why I prefer it. I did add a bit more milk (I used cow's milk). I also only got 9 large biscuits.

Pretty good and much healthier than prepackaged biscuits. Since I don't keep soy milk on hand I used skim milk instead of soy. Since I didn't have all purpose flour (ran out) I used all whole wheat. I also added garlic oregano Italian seasoning a bit of sugar and some cinnamon. I will make this again but would probably cut down on the oil by increasing the milk or adding water. Read More

I am trying to prepare more healthy options so I used only the wheat flour and made a triple batch - using olive oil and skim milk. The amount of milk the conversion gave as well as the baking powder wasn't quite enough. I liked it and the kids seemed to as well tho my husband requested the 1/2 white flour next time. This is the first whole wheat recipe I enjoyed. Please note my biscuits didn't rise with just whole wheat flour but they were still a nice consistancy. Looked like rocks but not hard! Read More

Really impressed we had everything but the whole wheat. Not a fan of shortening made them within 10 minutes of reading the recipe added honey instead of sugar and a little extra soy. Made huge biscuits cooked evenly and fluffy and tasted great! Ate them with sausage and gravy. Read More

These were excellent! I used what I had on hand - pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour and skim milk instead of soy milk - but even with substitutions these had a tender crumb and were light and airy. I added some garlic powder and basil along with the flour; very savory and delicious. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Very good biscuits after a few modifications: I added 2 Tbs honey and 1/2 tsp cinnamon substituted 1/4 cup of plain yogurt for the oil and only used 1/4 tsp of salt. Mine were perfect in 8 minutes (any longer would have been too long)...moist and delicious. I'll be making these again! Read More
