Classic vegan biscuits are delicious. But when you simply don't want to go to the trouble of rolling and cutting the dough, make these equally delicious and easy vegan Buttermilk Drop Biscuits. They are buttery and flaky and perfect for those times you want an indulgent yet quick breakfast. All you need to serve them is some jam. Or smother them in gravy. A vegan, soy-free and nut-free recipe.
One of the reasons why these easy vegan Buttermilk Drop Biscuits are a favorite weekend breakfast at our home is that not only are they super quick to put together, not only are they mindnumbingly delicious, but they're also so very versatile.
And they're golden and crispy and crumbly.
Desi can smear on some jam on them to satisfy his sweet tooth (they are absolutely amazing with some homemade rhubarb jam -- recipe coming next!), and I can eat them just as they are because I love savory. Or, better still, I can smother them with a creamy gravy, like the leek and mushroom gravy I shared in my last post, or this creamy vegan mushroom gravy, for deliciousness that's out of this world.
Jay, who loves both sweet and savory, can go either way.
Whatever you decide to do, you can rest assured that this will be a hearty, amazing breakfast that will have everyone going mmm-mmm.
You need just a handful of ingredients to make these biscuits happen, and I'll bet they already are in your pantry or refrigerator: flour, salt, water, a smidge of sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nondairy milk and apple cider vinegar.
You need just about five minutes to make your batter. After that bung them in the oven for 20 minutes and you'll have golden, delicious biscuits made from scratch that you can carry to the table, piping hot, looking like a domestic god or goddess.

Easy Vegan Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
- 2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 10 tablespoon vegan butter (cold, cut into small cubes)
- ¾ cup nondairy milk
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Mix the nondairy milk and the vinegar and set aside.
- Place the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and whisk them together to mix.
- Add the cubes of butter and using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture is grainy with a few pea-size pieces of butter.
- Add the milk-vinegar mixture, a little at a time, stirring with a fork to ensure everything mixes. Don't overmix because you don't want to promote the formation of gluten which will make your biscuits hard rather than crumbly and flaky.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using an ice cream scoop, or with a spoon, scoop out the batter in mounds on the baking sheet to make eight biscuits. You can also make 10 smaller biscuits. Make sure there's at least an inch of space between the biscuits.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Cool on a rack for five minutes, then serve hot or warm.

I did a dinner biscuit. Vegan pepper jack cheese and a little jalapeno. Great with soup or pasta!
could the flour be replaced with almond flour? if so would you recommend any other adjustments to achieve the same consistency?
Just made these and scarfed two. I have to say these will be a go to very often in this household. Delish. Thanks for sharing
Tried these over the holidays for family. I made a double batch and they were gone in minutes. This is a fantastic recipe! and easy.
If I wanted to make this non-vegan, can I just use regular butter and milk?
Do you have a suggestion for a matching gravy for these biscuits for a good biscuits and gravy breakfast?
