This recipe is slightly adapted from one submitted by Sara Culbertson. We found her recipe to be flexible with cheese alternatives, and also liked it with a lesser amount of nutritional yeast.
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 biscuits
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup dairy-free buttery sticks or spread
  • Up to ¾ cup unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
  • 1 cup dairy-free cheese alternative shreds
  1. Preheat your oven to 450ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, nutritional yeast, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the dairy-free buttery spread or sticks and whisk until relatively even, coarse crumbs form.
  4. Stir in the cheese alternative and enough dairy-free milk beverage to get a slightly sticky, but still manageable dough. I use about ⅔ to ¾ cup.
  5. Pat the dough out on a floured board to about 1-inch thickness. Cut with biscuit cutters, and transfer to your prepared baking sheet. Gather the scraps and repeat.
  6. Bake the biscuits for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
Drop Biscuits Option: Use the full ¼ cup nutritional yeast and increase the milk beverage to 1 cup and drop the dough onto your prepared baking sheet to make 12 biscuits. It will be much stickier dough. Bake as directed. They'll look more like the photo below.
