- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp (0.5 tsp) lemon juice
- 1/2 cup (122.5 g) pumpkin puree chilled I used canned. Chill at least for an hour
- 2 Tablespoons safflower or coconut oil or softened vegan butter I used safflower

- a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 cup (125 g) unbleached white flour
- 1/2 cup (87 g) spelt or whole wheat flour

- 1/4 tsp (0.25 tsp) baking soda
- 1 Tbsp chopped fresh Sage or 2 tsp dried
- 1/2 to 1 tsp dried thyme

- Use 1 to 2 Tbsp more vegan butter for flakier biscuits.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F / 200ºc. In a bowl mix almond milk, vinegar, lemon juice and let sit to curdle for 2 minutes. Add chilled pumpkin puree, oil/butter, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple, Mix well. In another bowl, mix the flours and baking powder and soda. Mix in the sage and thyme.
- Add the flour mixture to the wet. Mix well. The mixture will appear dry at first. Get your hands in there if needed to make a soft somewhat sticky dough. Add more non dairy milk or flour if needed, do not over-mix or knead.
- Pat the dough onto parchment to about a 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Use a little flour if needed if the dough is sticky. Cut the biscuits using a 2 inch cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. Place on parchment, push the center a little with a finger to make an indent, brush safflower/coconut/melted vegan butter on top.
- Bake for 12 to 13 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes or so as the biscuits will still be cooking on the inside. Serve warm with a dollop of vegan butter or jam or gravy. Cool completely and refrigerate in air tight container until ready to use. Warm in the oven before serving.

Is there a variation to use almond meal/flour?
Vegan Richa Support
You can use a mix of 3/4 cup almond flour and 3/4 to 1 cup gluten free blend of choice ( a mix of rice flour and starches). Note that the gf biscuit will tend to dry out quicker. Brush liberally with vegan butter or oil once baked, then cover and store.
It looks wowww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!thanking for sharing

these are soo good! A friend had given me a bunch of fresh herbs so it was a nice way to use them up. I’ve eaten so many of them already, they are that good! 🙂
Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
Made these for Thanksgiving dinner. Subbed King Arthur GF flour 3/4 cup, oat flour 1/4 cup, coconut flour 1/4 cup, 2 TBSP of arrowroot powder + 1TBSP oat flour to bring the dough together. Added a dollop of roasted garlic. These were soft and faintly sweet without being cloying. I’ll try them again using apple sauce to eliminate the oil – just as an experiment but I frankly expect it to ruin the texture and the savory nature of the biscuit. Point being, I guess, that these are fabulous and I will absolutely be making them again.
At Trader Joe’s and all they have is an Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour. Can I use just that – as in 1 1/2 cup? Alternatively, I have almond flour and all-purpose at home. Would you recommend using the above flour with a combination of one of those. Please advice. Not a baker, so can’t creatively wing it 😉 … Thank you – looking forward to making these tomorrow for thanksgiving.
use all purpse
I just made these pumpkin biscuits – they’re wonderful!!
I used hemp milk and rice vinegar without the lemon juice, and coconut oil that I warmed enough so it melted to make it easy to blend into the pumpkin.
The sage and thyme are a nice touch. I admit to gently kneading the dough just a little just before I patted it out. They rose well and are nice and tender so I guess I wasn’t too heavy handed, lol! This recipe is going into my recipe box because I’m sure my family will like these. I might have to replace the coconut oil with butter when my one daughter in law will be here as she gets a reaction to coconut.
Excellent recipe; thanks so very much!
Any suggestions for a gluten free flour substitute that would work in this recipe?
You can use a mix of 3/4 cup almond flour and 3/4 to 1 cup gf blend of choice ( a mix of rice flour and starches). The glutenfree biscuit will tend to dry out quicker. So once baked, brush liberally with vegan butter or oil and cover and store.
Awesome thank you!
These are so delicious! I used more fresh sage, cinnamon and nutmeg than called for, and topped roasted garlic with the vegan butter along the top before baking. Definitely making these again!!! thank you
These were great! The sage/pumpkin combo reminded me of Thanksgiving dinner. Delish!
I made these with leftover roasted buttercup squash and they were amazing, thanks!
These were very yummy! And best fresh. Thank you!
These muffins/scones are great! I made them yesterday. The sage gives them a great pop, and the moisture is right on. For anyone who may have wondered if they can sub another oil, I used canola oil (honestly because I just wasn’t thinking) and they came out fine. I do wish I had gone the route of vegan butter, though.
Regardless, great recipe!
Awesome! you can slather them with some extra vegan butter 🙂
This recipe looks really good!
You have a great blog. Really well done!

That is absolutely horrific what they do to those animals. That’s disgusting and breaks my heart. Why why why? How in the world can people believe that murdering animals will bring prosperity? That is so twisted.
Anyways, on another note, these biscuits are gorgeous and I want about 5 of them right now!
