Here they are – the inspiration behind the title of this blog: Hippie Biscuits!
They are super easy to make and so incredibly delicious.
Before going vegan I was a huge fan of biscuits and gravy. I’ve experienced that typical “oh shoot I’m gunna have to give up all my favorite meals that have butter and milk in them!” Then my husband came to the rescue with these babies and oh my goodness, life got that much more magical. My husband isn’t vegan, but he is extremely supportive of my lifestyle and beliefs. He doesn’t bring/cook meat in our home. He is willing to try all my crazy vegan recipe ideas and he even makes some of his own! He’s always been great at following recipes and directions, making him the best chef I could have ever asked for. I am extremely grateful for him!
I am giving him all the credit for these amazing biscuits because if it wasn’t for his support, I wouldn’t have been able to channel a whole new level to vegan cooking and baking.
Yes, vegan butter isn’t the healthiest, but I believe we all deserve a little soul food every now and again.
So here it is, the most delicious (and super simple) vegan biscuit recipe based off of Michael Ruhlman’s “The Key to Flaky Biscuits”. We took that recipe and simplified it!
Also, I recommend using a scale to measure out your ingredients. It often provides a more accurate measurement and is super essential for baking. If you don’t have a scale, you’ll find the estimated measurements as well.
- 9 oz flour (2 to 2 1/4 cups)
- 3 oz vegan butter (6 tbsp)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 oz plant-based milk (3/4 cup)
Pre-heat oven to 350.
Mix dry ingredients together – salt, baking powder, & flour
Add butter and use a fork to mush it into the dry mix. You want the bits to be broken down to about the size of a pea.
Add plant-based milk and mix it all together.
Get a pan ready (spray some oil or use parchment paper) and shape your biscuits! Sometimes we enjoy making a few bigger ones and other times we make a large amount of small ones. Either way, still so totally awesome.
I like to sprinkle some salt and dill on top before popping mine in the oven.
Bake anywhere from 20-25 minutes. You’ll know they are done when they’re golden on the bottom.
