Vegan Cheddar & Chive Biscuits

  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-10 biscuits depending on size 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour, plus additional for rolling
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt (Kosher or Table Salt)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, very cold (8 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Chives, Chopped
  • 1 cup Follow Your Heart Shredded Vegan Cheddar
  • 3/4 cup almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).
  2. Line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and black pepper; whisk well to combine.
  4. Add the vegan butter to the flour and using your fingertips rub the butter into the mix, stopping when the mixture is a coarse meal.
  5. Stir in the chives and vegan cheddar.
  6. Gradually add the almond milk and stir with a fork just until a messy (sticky) ball is formed. You may not use all the milk.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface and knead (with very floured hands) until the dough has been worked into a ball; about 6-7 times should do it. Don’t overwork the dough as they won’t rise well. Less kneading is better.
  8. Pat the ball down into a 1″ thick round, then use a biscuit cutter to cut out as many rounds as possible, re-rolling the scraps as needed. If you’re like me and prefer layers, I like to fold the dough a few times, then cut out the biscuits to create larger ones with more layers.
  9. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet bottom side up as it should be more flat. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Thanks for the recipe. Can I sub Almond flour or coconut flour for all purpose flour?

    1. Hi Cynthia! I would not sub for alternative flours to make a biscuit recipe as the result will be nothing like the traditional variety. You may be able to achieve something with almond flour, but coconut flour has a high absorbency and typically just ruins recipes.

  2. Hi can I substitute the almond milk with oat milk?

  3. These were good with nice texture. I can’t get Follow Your Heart brand where I live so I used Violife Epic Cheddar block, which I think along with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar was just a tad too sweet for my taste. I will definitely try again with maybe half the sugar and/or a different vegan cheddar. Thanks for the recipe!
