Going vegan (except for the meat–don’t ask, I’m weird like this) AND gluten-free is hard. There’s all sorts of tricks and things to keep yourself from going insane with the cravings, but it’s still difficult. Don’t worry–I’ll write you a post for that, soon so you know my fave tricks and your trip can be a little less stressful than mine. But, one of the biggest problems I still struggle with: breakfast. It feels like there’s just nothing (NOTHING) that you can do to make a breakfast easily (even going out is a struggle). Well, not anymore…I’m engineering this problem from the ground up and I started with this recipe for Gluten-Free Vegan Honey Biscuits. Get your yummy-noises ready.
Modified from my Vegan Drop Biscuits recipe, these biscuits really turned-out better than I imagined. I mean, sweet, easy and fluffy. Exactly how every biscuit should be. Now, most of my breakfasts will be soooo much more pleasant. Now I have to work on my going-out eating vegan-ish and gluten-free. I mean, ordering 2 sets of hash browns…but only getting one…UGH! It’s a nightmare. And I feel like such a jerk, but really, it’s not like I’m ordering caviare here…just 2 sets of hash browns…Never mind. I’m done being upset about this. On with the awesome Gluten-Free Vegan Honey Biscuits that brought you here.
Gluten-Free Vegan Honey Biscuits
- 1 tspn vinegar
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup coconut milk (I used the kind you use for cereal, not the canned kind)
- 4 tblspn coconut oil
- ½ tspn salt
- Pinch of sugar
- 2 cups gluten-free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Flour)
- 6 tspn baking powder
- 8-12 tspn honey
- Preheat oven to 450-degrees.
- Oil a baking sheet and set aside.
- Mix all dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
- Combine wet ingredients in a second bowl, except for the honey.
- Add wet ingredients to dry in ⅓ increments and stir until thoroughly combined.
- Now, you can place the dough on a floured surface and roll it out, then cut some biscuits if you want, but I prefer to just put some oil on my hands, then yank-out some dough and drop it on the pan. My mom does this exact dropping-step, but then she rolls the ball of dough in the oiled pan to smooth the surface. This gets rid of all the whickerbills (the extra-crispy-cooked knobs and pokey-bits that get a little browner than the rest when cooked), but I kinda like them, so…we just agree to disagree on this point. Heh.
- Using your thumb or a spoon (I'm a thumb girl myself), make a shallow depression in the center of each biscuit.
- Fill depression with honey.
- Place biscuits in the oven for approximately 10-12 minutes or until golden.
- Get ready to mmmmmm...
