5.0 (1 reviews)

2 cups + 2 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup unsweetened plain soy milk mixed with 1/2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

•Preheat the oven to 375°F.
•In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
•Cut the vegetable shortening into the dry mixture and combine until the dough is crumbly.
•Stir in the mixture of soy milk and vinegar until a ball of dough starts to form.
•Knead the dough a couple of times, dusting your hands with the extra 2 tablespoonfuls of flour as needed. If the dough is dry, add small amounts of water (about a tablespoonful at a time) to moisten it.
•Dust your hands lightly with the remaining flour, then grab handfuls of dough and shape them into biscuits.
•Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add the biscuits, spaced approximately 1 inch apart. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the bottoms start to brown.
