  • Mix flour, baking powder, stevia powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in coconut oil with a pastry cutter or knife until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in almond milk until dough is just moistened.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat or roll the dough out into a 3/4 inch thick round. Cut circles with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter and arrange biscuits on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use white whole wheat flour and either stevia, agave, or sugar for sweetening.

This made delicious biscuits though I did change a few things. I omitted the sugar altogether, used 1/4 Earth Balance + 1/2 C coconut oil and added a few herbs since I was making biscuits for biscuits and gravy. The biscuits are moist and yummy! Read More

Had to add much more coconut oil than resume stated to get it crumbly. I must be use to butter as an ingredient because these biscuits lacked the "melt in my mouth" flavor. Or it needs more stevia. Read More

I altered the recipe with the following ingredients: 1 cup white flour, 1 cup white whole wheat flour, I also added a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (or white or lemon juice) to the soy milk (instead of almond) to make sour milk. I also used a whole cane brown sugar instead of Stevia (I had no idea what was Stevia). The biscuits came out great! My coconut oil was in liquid form. I wasn't sure at first if that would work, but it worked great! I made a nutritional yeast gravy to go on top and they were delicious! Both of my sons, ages 4 and 9 months loved them too! Good recipe! Thanks! Read More

Really good, but be aware of what kind of stevia powder you have. I have pure stevia extract powder with no additives, and 1/4 of a tsp makes pretty sweet biscuits, maybe a tad bit too sweet for some. I don't know what powder the writer used, but if I used a tbsp of my extract, it would be equivalent to 3-5 cups of sugar (which would make the biscuits sweeter than pure sugar in the shape of biscuits).

I made these yesterday without any high hopes but boy was I impressed! I even received high praise from my picky eaters. I used skim milk in place of the almond milk and only about 2/3 c. since it is not as thick and read the reviews about these not rising much and added about 1/2 TBS vital wheat gluten. I was very happy with the outcome. I was looking for a recipe that didn't use shortening and this is IT! Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

I needed something dairy free so I tried these. I was very pleasantly surprised! I love using coconut oil and I had some almond milk that I had made. I didn't have any stevia so I used a little coconut palm sugar. They don't really rise much so don't expect that. They are very good though. Read More

Great recipe. I subbed soy milk for almond milk and it ended up being a bit too much liquid so I added extra pastry floor. Also made this with sugar instead of stevia. Overall the biscuits came out moist and fluffy and my family loved them. Read More

I chose this recipe because it does not use shortening and I was pleasantly surprised by the result. They came out as slightly sweet fluffy biscuits with just a hint of coconut and almond flavor. I did not roll out the dough but cut in the oil using my food processor then put the mix into a large bowl and quickly worked in the milk with a spoon. Then I made patties by hand just gently patting the dough into shape - worked very well and was quick. I also made a second batch (at the same time) using half coconut oil and half lard (from cooking bacon) and added some onions and bacon bits (I cooked cut-up bacon and onion in a pan before adding). And I did not have any more almond milk so I used buttermilk instead about 2/3 cup. They came out great too but I think the bacon flavor does not harmonize so well with the coconut flavor although everybody in my family still loved them. The "original" batch was a nicer more rounded flavor overall and if you add bacon leave out the sugar. Read More
