Almond butter replaces shortening in this quick, easy and flavorful plant-based biscuits.


  • 1 2/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • pinch salt, if desired
  • 1/2 tsp. spice blend (see above for link)
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple sugar
  • 1/3 cup sourdough starter (if you don’t have starter, use 2/3 cup almond milk, total)
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dried tart cherries
  • zest from 1/2 an orange


  1. Line a baking pan with parchment and preheat the oven to 475-degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, spice blend and maple sugar. In a small bowl, whisk together the sourdough starter and milk. Set aside.
  3. Mix the almond butter into the flour mixture and then pour the sourdough mixture in and add the orange zest – stir or use your hand to bring the dough together. Add more milk if necessary. Add in the cacao nibs and the dried cherries.
  4. On a floured surface, pat the dough into a square or circle and cut into pieces. Place on the prepared baking sheet leaving an inch or so between biscuits. Brush with almond milk, if desired. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until brown on the outside.
