Most of us have childhood memories of biscuits. The ones we devoured so hungrily as children tended to be packed full of butter, milk, and gluten, however.
Fortunately, we’ve discovered a vegan, gluten-free version that uses plant milk, almond flour, and all-purpose gluten-free flour! The addition of baking soda and baking powder helps these biscuits rise, but they won’t stretch quite as high as the conventional variety.
These nuggets are perfect with vegan butter or margarine, jam, almond butter, or pretty much anything, really. You won’t be able to stop eating these, so don’t even try.
1 1/4 cups almond flour (you can also use almond meal)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose, gluten-free flour (try our Homemade Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Mix!)
2 heaping teaspoons baking powder (aluminum-free, please!)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut sugar (or you can use maple syrup or coconut syrup)
2/3 cups unsweetened plant milk (we used coconut, but pretty much any kind will work)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the plant milk last, pouring it in a little bit at a time to avoid lumps. Your dough should achieve a pliable consistency — neither firm nor runny. Adjust texture as needed.
Scoop a small handful of dough out and press it onto a floured cutting board or other firm surface. It should be about 1/4 inch thick, but you don’t need to measure!
Using a cookie cutter or the rim of a small glass, cut out a small circle of dough. Place the dough on a greased cookie sheet. You can utilize olive oil, coconut oil, vegan butter or margarine for greasing purposes.
Repeat the above step until all the dough is gone. You should end up with about 8 biscuits, depending on width and the size of your cookie cutter or glass.
If you want your biscuits to achieve an even lovelier golden-brown color, brush a little bit of plant milk across the top of each with your fingertips. Not necessary, but it looks cool!
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes until the biscuits are slightly brown on top. Remove from your oven, let them cool for a few minutes, and serve with the condiments of your choice! We have simple tastes, so we just loved them with a dab of Earth Balance.
These biscuits are best fresh, so eat them right away. You can store them, securely covered, for a couple of days. Pro tip: try them sliced and toasted, especially if you’ve had them for a day or two. Enjoy!
