How to Make Vegan Drop Biscuits
This recipe is a simple tweak to my favorite drop biscuit recipe from SeriousEats. They are the fastest biscuits to make and require no cutter. Just mix, drop and go!
Step 1: Mix dry ingredients.
In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients.
Measure out coconut oil in solid form. Just scoop out coconut oil into a measuring cup until you have roughly 4oz. It’s not a perfect science.
It’s important to use refined coconut oil which eliminates the coconut flavor.
In a bind you can use non-refined, just know your vegan biscuits will have a coconut flavor, yet still very delicious.
Step 2: Mix in coconut oil. Then oat milk.
With a fork, press and cut the coconut oil into the flour until it forms a coarse meal. The pieces of coconut oil will be smaller than a pea.
Then mix in oat milk.
Step 3: Mix to form a shaggy dough.
The dough will come together pretty quickly. Use a 1/4 cup measure to roughly drop biscuits onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
You’ll make 8 drop biscuits.
Step 4: Bake
A quick 15 minutes in the oven and you have the perfect biscuit.
How should you enjoy these drop biscuits?

- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 ounces refined coconut oil, in solid form
- 3/4 cup oat milk
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Toss solid coconut oil into dry ingredients until coated with flour. Working quickly, using a fork or pastry cutter, cut solid coconut oil into the flour until it resembles coarse meal (little pea sized pebbles). See photo in post.
Add oat milk and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture just comes together into a slightly sticky, shaggy dough.
Divide dough into 8 biscuits and place on parchment lined baking sheet (about a 1/4-cup measuring cup per biscuit).
Bake biscuits until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

How do you measure out the solid coconut oil? And is 1/2 cup equivalent to 4oz of solid coconut oil?
Hi April, I measure solid coconut oil in a clear measuring cup, scooping it in spoonfuls until I get the amount needed. You can see in my recipe post a photo of the measuring cup with the scooped coconut oil. Hope that helps! Enjoy!
