These biscuits have layers of flaky goodness with so much flavor, and most importantly they are dairy-free. The biscuits go great with butter and jam, sorghum, or sausage gravy.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking pan with parchment paper or a nonstick silicone baking mat, such as SILPAT™.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in vegan butter and coconut oil with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • Slowly add cold almond milk and stir until dough just comes together. It may not be necessary to use all the milk; dough will be wet and sticky.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead (fold over) 15 times. Gently roll or pat dough to a 1- or 1 1/2-inch thickness. Cut biscuits with a small biscuit cutter or a small bourbon glass. Gently re-roll the dough scraps and cut remaining biscuits.

  • Place biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Be sure they are touching each other and the sides of the pan; don't be afraid to squish them in--this helps them to rise high.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you'd like to use original (sweetened) almond milk, omit the sugar.

It looks good but I haven't tried it yet. I also would like to know if this can be made with a gluten free flour/mix? Read More

I love baking powder biscuits and this is a great alternative for the ones of us with a dairy intolerance. Nice fluffy biscuits ready in 20 mins. I made a chicken pot pie base with veggies and chicken and topped it with these then baked some extras. Read More

Very tasty biscuits! I made them as directed, but only had to use a tiny bit more than 1/2 cup of the almond milk (just FYI for others). I got 6 biscuits, using a 2-3/4" biscuit cutter. I baked them in a round cake pan lined with parchment paper. They are tender and flaky. I topped mine with a bit of vegan butter and organic raspberry preserves! Read More
