Estimated cooking time: 30 minutes

{Serves 2-3}

Biscuit Ingredients: 

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ cup vegan butter*

* for the best consistency, stick the vegan butter in the freezer for at least 10 minutes before you begin.


  1. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside after thoroughly mixing.
  2. Remove the chilled vegan butter from the refrigerator or freezer. After cutting the butter into small pieces, add the vegan butter to the flour.
  3. Add the plant-based milk to the flour mixture. Do not over-mix; stir until barely combined.
  4. Using a clean surface covered in flour, roll out the biscuit dough. Work the mixture into a dough with your hands, but watch out not to overwork it. If the dough is too gooey to work with, add flour in little amounts until it isn’t.
  5. Fold dough gently into itself and knead about multiple times after it is formed. Make a soft ball out of it.
  6. Flatten this dough ball with your hands until it is about an inch thick. Next, cut the dough into two-inch-wide discs.
  7. Line the baking pan with a silicone baking mat. The discs should be placed approximately half an inch apart on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake till golden brown in the oven A fork poked into the center should come out clean, which indicates that your biscuits are good to go!

Vegan Biscuits and Gravy Tips

Keep in mind that overworking the dough will make the biscuits dense and tough.

  • The gravy can be made while the biscuits are baking to conserve energy. By the end, you can consume nice, flaky biscuits and a thick, warm gravy without reheating anything.
  • Consider adding some vegan sausage to your gravy mixture. Your gravy will taste even better with the addition of a plant-based sausage. Traditional Southern biscuits and gravy fans will be especially pleased with this vegan variation.
  • Simply use gluten-free flour in the biscuits and gluten-free flour to thicken the gravy to make this dish gluten-free.
  • Whatever kind of milk substitute you use, make sure you use an unsweetened and unflavored plant-based milk. Typically, soy or oat milk work well, although bear in mind that each has their own benefits and drawbacks for the planet. You can combine some plant milk with a little vegan creamer for extra creaminess.

Keeping the biscuits in an airtight container for two days at room temperature is recommended. Using a refrigerated, airtight container will keep both the biscuits and gravy fresh for up to six days. You’ll want to store your vegan gravy in a resealable and reusable container for the best results.
