Vegan Biscuits

Author: Traffic Light Cook
A tad firmer than traditional buttermilk biscuit, this whole-grain vegan biscuit offers almost the same experience as the traditional biscuit.

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (or sub with regular whole wheat flour)
  • 1 cup white spelt flour (or sub with all-purpose flour)
  • 1/4 cup white spelt flour (for dusting)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or any other)
  • 1 cup light coconut milk (chilled)
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (chilled)
  • 1 tsp thyme (dried, or sub with tsp fresh thyme)


  • Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C). Mix chilled coconut milk with white vinegar and let it rest in the refrigerator. In a medium bowl, mix pastry flour, spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and dried thyme. Stir 5-10 times with a whisk. 
  • Chill coconut oil in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes prior to making the bread. Cut the oil in pea-size bits and work into the flour. Start mixing with both hands until the coconut oil is completely absorbed in the flour, leaving a semi wet sand-like mixture. Make a well in the center, and pour coconut milk and vinegar mixture in the flour. Mix with hands till the flour comes together (don't over mix). The dough will be a little wet at this point. 
  • On a floured surface, gently press and fold the dough over with hands till it is workable into a ball. Press the ball lightly either with hands or a rolling pin into a 3/4" round . Cut out biscuits (~2 inch round) with a biscuit cutter or with the rim of a small cup or bowl. Scoop up the trimmings and form another ball. Repeat the process till all the dough is used. 
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes. Once baked, set on a cooling rack for 30 minutes or serve warm with your favorite topping. Mine are mushroom gravy, jam, and almond butter. Enjoy. 


*these biscuits tastes best when served warm. But you can store them in the fridge for about 5-7 days. Just reheat in a toaster oven before serving.
