Vegan biscuits with dairy-free 'buttermilk' are a must-try! These American biscuits are soft, flaky and tall, with a distinctive buttery flavor. They make an exceptional side dish or snack, and no one will be able to tell that they are entirely plant based!


  • 1 cup plant based milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2.8 oz vegan butter, or margarine


  • Small mixing bowl
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Conventional oven
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking tray


  • Make the vegan buttermilk. Mix together the plant based milk and lemon juice, and set aside to curdle for one minute.
    1 cup plant based milk, 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Then, add the vegan butter/margarine, and mix together using a fork until a fine crumb forms.
    1/2 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp baking powder, 2.8 oz vegan butter, 3 1/4 cups flour
  • Add the buttermilk, and continue mixing using either a fork or a wooden spoon until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly-floured surface and roll out into a rectangle around an inch in thickness. Then, fold in the upper and lower edge, and roll it out once again.
  • Use a cookie cutter to cut out circles around 3 inches in diameter and transfer them to a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush with some melted vegan butter if desired, then bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, until lightly golden brown on top.
  • Allow to cool down for 5 minutes before serving!
