This is by far my best attempt at making DF/GF biscuits. I have tried repeatedly to make a good batch of homemade southern style biscuits and they have all come out of the oven looking brown, flat, too dense, and not to mention no taste at all. Well, until now. My son has been asking for sausage biscuits for about two weeks and so I thought I would try it again. So I looked at recipes online and then came up with my own version of what I thought would actually work and ta-da I think I did pretty good. He ate them right up and by the way if you have not tried Hillary’s brand breakfast “sausage” pattys then you need to try. OMG, they are plant based, clean, and so so yummy! Here you go and let me know if you try them and what you think in the comments section. I love to hear your feedback and I am always open to try and change a recipe to make it better.
2 cups GF flour (I used Bobs Red Mill 1 to 1 baking flour. This mixture has xanthum gum in it so you don’t have to add it. I like this flour the best so far for baking.)
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp coconut sugar
½ tbsp granulated sugar (you could probably just use coconut sugar only or even try unsweetened apple sauce)
¼ cup ground flax
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup buttermilk (since we are DF, I used 1 cup unsweetened almond milk with 1 tbsp white vinegar. Pour both into a bowl and let sit for a few minutes and this is how you make DF buttermilk…boom!)
1 tbsp white vinegar
5 tbsp Earth Balance butter
Set the oven for 425.
Spoon out 5 tbsp of butter into a bowl and place in freezer.
Pour milk and vinegar into a bowl and set aside.
In a bowl add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, sea salt, ground flax, chia).
In another bowl add the milk and egg and whisk.
Pour the milk and egg mixture into the bowl with dry ingredients and stir. Do not stir too much as the biscuits won’t cook up as fluffy. Keep in mind these are not going to be as fluffy as a regular biscuit, but they are still fluffy and have similar texture to a regular biscuit.
I sprayed the cooking sheet with avocado oil, but you could use whatever you have on hand. Scoop out large spoonful’s of dough onto the cookie sheet and bake for about 18 minutes.
Allow to cool then cut and serve with sausage pattys (I have found Hillary’s brand at Publix and Whole Foods). These are also great with fruit preserves.
