I made these with spelt flour instead of whole wheat and honey instead of sugar. Great inspiration for light fluffy biscuits! The dough was rising as I spooned these onto the parchment paper for baking! Delightful flavor and consistency! Read More

They are good but not what I was hoping for. You can't really taste the applesauce. Maybe a little more applesauce and use honey instead of sugar. Read More

These are pretty darn tasty little biscuits. My kids liked them. I used coconut oil as that is what I had on hand and it gave it a nice flavor. I think I added more applesauce the second time I made them and they turned out a little more moist. Overall this was a hit at my house. Family enjoyed them and they were super easy to make. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I took the advice of past reviewer and used all honey as sub for sugar. I also used canola oil. They turned out sweet and delicious! Read More

Delightful vegan biscuits! I used olive oil although I think that coconut oil could give it a nice flavour and might make the recipe a tad more together. I did a half and half of sugar and honey but I think I'll try all honey later as I'm trying to cut out refined sugars. Overall bravo! Loved it! Read More

I cut it down to 4 servings and like others did half sugar half honey and canola oil over peanut. The dough was pretty dry so I added a tad more honey to get it going. Worked fine and got 4 decent sized tasty biscuits:) Read More

flavor was pretty good. They are a bit dense I would assume because of the whole wheat flour. Overall not too bad though. Read More

These turned out great everyone liked them. 14 minutes was the perfect baking time. Only thing I need to change is the salt. They were very salty. Other than that there were no problems. Read More

I was skeptical but these were delicious!! Only had cinnamon applesauce on hand but it just gave them a little extra character.:-) Read More
