I’ve been waiting for these pregnancy cravings, but even at 32 weeks, they have yet to come for me. I believe that if you’re missing something in your diet, you’ll experience these random cravings like pickled and ice cream etc, but as you’d image.. 


I have a boring food routine that’s all about …the plants!!








One concept I have been thinking about though is another biscuit recipe! As a southerner there are a few foodie staples that just never get old, agood biscuit is one of them! Since the Rosemary Biscuits with Truffle “Honey” were such a hit, I knew I had to produce another staple biscuit..

Vegan Cheddar & Chive Biscuits

  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-10 biscuits depending on size 1x


  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour, plus additional for rolling
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt (Kosher or Table Salt)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, very cold (8 tbsp)
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Chives, Chopped
  • 1 cup Follow Your Heart Shredded Vegan Cheddar
  • 3/4 cup almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).
  2. Line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and black pepper; whisk well to combine.
  4. Add the vegan butter to the flour and using your fingertips rub the butter into the mix, stopping when the mixture is a coarse meal.
  5. Stir in the chives and vegan cheddar.
  6. Gradually add the almond milk stir with a fork just until a messy (sticky) ball is formed.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface and knead (with very floured hands) until the dough has been worked into a ball; about 6-7 times should do it. Don’t overwork the dough as they won’t rise well. Less kneading is better.
  8. Pat the ball down into a 1″ thick round, then use a biscuit cutter to cut out as many rounds as possible, re-rolling the scraps as needed. I like to fold the dough in half, then cut out the biscuits to create larger ones with more layers.
  9. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet bottom side up as it should be more flat. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. Can I sub Almond flour or coconut flour for all purpose flour?

    • Hi Cynthia! I would not sub for alternative flours to make a biscuit recipe as the result will be nothing like the traditional variety. You may be able to achieve something with almond flour, but coconut flour has a high absorbency and typically just ruins recipes.

  2. Hi can I substitute the almond milk with oat milk?
