My husband is from the south and when it comes to biscuits he is an expert. I have tried replicating his grandmother’s famous recipe but it never properly veganized.

I decided to give it another try with some different ingredients. These received the “Jack Seal of Approval”.

Super simple to make but the key is to make sure the Earth Balance is COLD when mixing into the flour and other dry ingredients.

ENJOY!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Almond Milk unsweetened OR Non-Dairy Milk of Choice
  • 2 Tbl. apple cider vinegar OR Lemon Juice
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 Tbl. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 Tbl. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 8 Tbl. Earth Balance cold and cut into small cubes

Directions

  1. Pour Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk into a medium bowl and add apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice). Let sit for 5 minutes or until it has begun to curdle.
  2. In a large bowl compine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Cut Earth Balance stick into small cubes and using fingers mix into flour mixture until it resembles small crumbs.
  4. Make an indentation in mixture and pour in curdled non-dairy milk. Use hands to blend, being careful not to overmix as it will make the biscuits tough.
  5. Place mixture on a floured surface and knead slightly (around 8 times).
  6. Using hands, form into a round shape, approximately 1" thick.
  7. Use a round cookie cutter (I used a glass with the rim coated in flour) and cut into individual pieces.
  8. Line pieces, touching each other, on greased baking sheet.
  9. Brush tops with melted Earth Balance. (OPTIONAL but highly recommended.)
  10. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. I love how your recipes are vegan but still feel like ones mom used to make. Sometimes other vegan chefs go a little too far with the healthy options and the tastes are way off. Any recipe that starts with butter and sugar must be great comfort foods!

    Quick question: we really like Miyokos Vegan Butter and I’ve started using monkfruit sweeteners or Swerve (erythritol). Have you tried using any sugar alternatives for any of your recipes?

    1. Hello Sonja,

      Yes, I love Miyokos Vegan Butter but find it to be somewhat expensive for a lot of my readers. I have tried monk fruit once but was not very happy with how it worked. I really like using applesauce and maple syrup. I have a banana bread recipe that is really good…no flour, no oil, no egg substitute. It tastes like a yummy bowl of baked oatmeal. I have not yet posted the recipe but if you are interested, please let me know and I will send it your way!

      Best,

      Roxanne
