There are lots of recipes out there for vegan biscuits.
And there’s even more for gluten-free biscuits.
But what if you need a gluten-free + vegan biscuit?
Well, I’ve got a healthier alternative for you with my Gluten-Free Vegan Biscuit recipe!
A couple of years ago, I posted a Vegan Coconut Oil Biscuit recipe that I make for my family and is really good, but it’s not gluten-free so I can’t enjoy it 🙁
And I sure do miss biscuits!
So I decided to try and attempt to make them gluten-free and came up with these Gluten-Free Vegan Biscuits, based off the original non-gluten-free biscuit recipe.
I used Bob’s Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour and the first couple of times I made them, I was turned off by the strong garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour taste.
But it must have grown on me because it doesn’t bother me anymore and although it’s very strong before you put them in the oven, you really can’t taste it after they are baked.
Will These Gluten-Free Vegan Biscuits Taste Like Regular Biscuits?
Just so you’ll know what to expect, they aren’t going to be like a traditional flakey + super fluffy biscuit – but they are soft and moist (not a dry biscuit).
You will need to let them cool down before removing them from the baking pan or eating them so the coconut oil can solidify or they will be extra crumbly.
And, they are delicate so you will need to be a little gentle with them.
Are These Gluten-Free Vegan Biscuit Recipe Healthy?
In my opinion, yes!
Let’s compare the ingredients to a S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Biscuit recipe:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Biscuit Recipe:
Typical Ingredients: 3 cups all-purpose white flour, 8 tablespoons butter, 1 cup milk, 3 tablespoons white sugar, 1 egg, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt
In my healthier version, you don’t need to use white flour, white sugar, eggs or butter, which makes it vegan + gluten-free!

Tip #1: I like to use homemade almond milk, but feel free to use your favorite non-dairy milk.
Tip #2: Make sure your baking powder is fresh, it really does make a difference.
Tip #3: I used Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Baking Flour with these ingredients: Garbanzo Bean Flour, Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, Whole Grain Sweet White Sorghum Flour, Fava Bean Flour. Because different gluten-free flours have different ingredient combinations, I don’t know if another brand will work because I haven’t tested the recipe with any other brands.
