Tasty And Crunchy Vegan Biscuit Recipes
1. Digestive Biscuits
Digestive biscuits are in great demand amongst bakery lovers. These biscuits are nothing but a simple blend of cookies in which baking soda is added as an antacid. Now that doesn’t sound quite appealing, does it? But, honestly, these biscuits are very tasty and healthy.
Here is a veganized version of digestive biscuits for people switching on a plant-based diet. They are no refined sugar, no dairy, and no refined flour goodies with a subtle nutty flavor. Check out the easy vegan biscuits recipes here.
- 1 1/2 cups spelt flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 5-8 tablespoons non-dairy milk
- Extra flour for sprinkling
- Preheat oven to 380°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Grind the oats to course flour like consistency in a food processor. To this add spelt flour, salt, baking powder and brown sugar and pulse lightly to combine all ingredients evenly.
- Now add coconut oil and process until it mixes well with the dry ingredients. Gradually add milk (1 tablespoon at a time) to form a smooth biscuit dough.
- Dust your work surface with some spelt flour and transfer the dough to it. Sprinkle some more flour over it.
- Roll out the dough to about 3mm thickness.
- Using cookie cutters, cut out rounds into the dough. In case you don’t have a cookie cutter use the cap of a mason jar or similar object. You may also make biscuits of different shapes (stars or squares) if you like.
- Place these rounds on the baking tray laying them at least 2 inches apart so they have enough room to expand.
- Bake for around 15 minutes or till the biscuits turn golden brown. Allow them to cool; they will firm up in the process.
- Place on the cooling wire rack and allow it to cool completely.
- Serve with hot chocolate.
- Store in an airtight container.
