Delicious Plant-Based Coconut Biscuits

Wow, I promise you everyone will love these delicious plant-based coconut biscuits! You can make them in a cinch without any oil. It’s perfect for the holidays, alongside your favorite soup or stew, dipped in gravy, or even with jam in the morning.

Making good plant-based coconut biscuits sometimes can be a little of a challenge if the right flour is not used. For this recipe, I used a combination of pastry flour (whole wheat) and almond flour. This gives it the perfect balance. You can use regular whole wheat flour but the consistency is denser than with pastry flour.

Making these are pretty simple, takes little time to make and I’m sure you’ll love the great taste. Make sure you use fresh shredded coconut (not coconut flakes). Start by preheating your oven to 425° F. and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.

In a bowl, add the apple cider vinegar into the coconut milk, stir slightly and set aside for 10 minutes to allow it to curdle. This is an important step.

Whisk together in a large bowl, the dry ingredients; flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, shredded coconut, and salt. Then pour the milk and vinegar mixture along with the vanilla into the dry ingredients and mix. Note: It is important not to over stir. Just blend enough. If you over stir, the biscuits will not turn out properly.

Next, sprinkle flour on the surface and your hands, then start gently work it with your hands, adding a little more flour as you go if it becomes too sticky. Do not overwork the dough or it will not rise properly and may become too dense. Fold in to combine the ingredients.

Add a little more flour onto the work surface and roll the dough out to no less than 1/2″ thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits and place them on your prepared baking sheet. Continue to re-roll the dough until you have used it up, placing them on the baking sheet as you go.

Place in the oven and bake for approximately 12 minutes (check the biscuits at 10 minutes) until they are a light golden brown and fluffy.

Remove and allow to cool just slightly before serving!
