About this recipe

This biscuit recipe has 5 ingredients, and you make it super fast. Best of all, everyone in your house can help make them; children love making this type of bread. They are perfect for breakfast with blackberry or raspberry chia seed jam, or you can even serve them savory with a vegan cream cheese.

These are vegan and amazing. They are so easy and fast to prepare; you’ll be amazed. You’ll want to eat for breakfast and as a snack.



  • Wheat flour. Use all-purpose wheat flour. If you use whole wheat flour, make sure that it is finely ground.
  • Salt. For me, the best salt to cook with is kosher salt.
  • Baking powder. You need 2 tablespoons, and yes they are tablespoons, not teaspoons.
  • Coconut oil. Use filtered coconut oil, so it doesn’t taste like coconut.
  • Vegetable milk. I like to use homemade almond milk or oat milk works well here too.
  • Lemon juice * optional. Lemon juice is used to make them more fluffy.

 The lemon juice is put into the milk and is totally optional.


  1. Mix the powders and add the coconut oil. Mix with a pastry cutter, two knives, or a fork. It is better not to use your hands. The texture you are looking for is wet sand.
  2. Then you add the milk and with a wooden spoon, mix everything very well.
  3. Remove the mixture from the bowl and carefully form a rectangle. Spread it out a little with a rolling pin and fold the edges inward. You stretch again and fold again.
  4. Cut, place the vegan homemade biscuits on a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat, and put in the oven.


  • I make them in squares because it’s faster to prepare them, and you don’t waste any dough.
  • Do not overwork so that you have layers of traditional bread from biscuits.
  • It is important that the fat you use, in this case, coconut oil, is cold. This makes them flaky and smooth.
  • If you want, you can finish them with a mixture of coconut oil and maple syrup.

  • 4 cups wheat flour or whole wheat flour
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup cold coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 1 cup rice milk or other vegetable
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice *optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • In a bowl mix the dry ingredients very well and add the coconut oil.
  • To mix coconut oil and dry ingredients, you can use two knives or a fork. The idea is that they integrate very well and form the consistency of wet sand.
  • Add the milk and mix well until a ball is formed.
  • Prepare a baking dish with a piece of parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Put the dough on top of the parchment paper and with your hands form a disc, fold it in half and press again, and fold again. Continue until you form a square about one inch thick. Cut into 12 pieces.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes.


They taste delicious fresh from the oven or reheated in the toaster oven.
