  • 1 cup unsweetened plain soy milk or other nondairy milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups 242 grams whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground rosemary or 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or use extra pumpkin puree to make oil-free


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Oil a large baking sheet or use parchment paper to make oil-free.
  • Whisk the soy milk and vinegar and set aside. (While it stands, it will curdle and thicken, creating a vegan buttermilk substitute. This only works with soy milk; if you use a nut milk or coconut milk, it will not thicken.)
  • Measure the flour into a blender or food processor. Process until the flour is finely ground. This will take several minutes in a food processor.
  • Pour the flour into a medium mixing bowl. Add the baking powder, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cut in the pumpkin puree and coconut oil with a pastry cutter or two knives.
  • Mix the soy milk into the flour mixture (the dough will be sticky, which will create extra moist biscuits).
  • Using a large cookie scoop or spoon, scoop ¼-cup portions of the dough onto the baking sheet.
  • Bake until the bottoms are medium brown, about 10 minutes.
