My easy vegan strawberry drop biscuits use minimal ingredients to make healthy and delicious biscuits! Here's what you'll need:
- Vegan Butter: Melted vegan butter is added for a rich, buttery biscuit. If you are not vegan, feel free to substitute with regular butter.
- Almond Milk: Any milk will work here but I prefer unsweetened almond or oat milk!
- Maple Syrup & Vanilla Extract: Maple syrup is added for a touch of sweetness and flavor. Vanilla adds some extra flavor as well!
- Baking Powder: Baking powder helps the biscuits rise in the oven to become fluffy.
- Salt: A touch of salt is needed to balance the flavors!
- Flour: I used all purpose flour here, but you can make gluten-free drop biscuits by replacing it with a gluten-free flour. I recommend King Arthur's Measure for Measure gluten-free flour.
- Fresh or Frozen Strawberries: Dice up some fresh strawberries or use frozen strawberries for ease!
- Optional Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting: Powdered Sugar, Vegan Cream Cheese and Softened Vegan Butter can be combined for a creamy, sweet frosting!
- Optional Vegan Vanilla Icing: Powdered Sugar, Almond Milk, and Vanilla Extract can be combined for a thinner, sweet drizzle!
How to Make This Recipe
Vegan Strawberry Drop Biscuits are super easy to whip up and can be ready to enjoy in just 20 minutes!
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, hand mix the melted butter, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, salt and baking powder.
Step 2: Then, mix in the flour until just combined. Be careful not to over mix! If using gluten-free flour and the mixture seems crumbly, add 1 tablespoon of melted vegan butter and 1 tablespoon of almond milk and mix it into the dough.
Step 3: Then, gently fold in the strawberries. Again, don't over mix!
Step 4: Use a heaping tablespoon to scoop out 12 drop biscuits and drop them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake them for about 15 minutes until they are lightly golden on top. Option to broil at the end for about a minute to give them more color on the top.
Step 5: Finally, you can make either a vegan cream cheese frosting or a vegan vanilla icing to top these off! For the vegan cream cheese frosting, use an elective hand mixer to mix powdered sugar, vegan cream cheese, and softened vegan butter. For the vegan icing, use a whisk to mix powdered sugar, almond milk, and vanilla together. Drizzle the frosting or icing over the warm biscuits and serve immedieately!
- Don't over mix the dough! Make sure to gently mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Over mixed dough can result in dense biscuits!
- Eat them with more vegan butter! If you skip the icing on these, try having your warm vegan strawberry drop biscuits with some more vegan butter. Slightly sweet with a bit of buttery flavor. Yum!
- Try not to over bake. Keep an eye on the biscuits in an effort to not over bake. Over baked biscuits can become quite dry!
Frequently Asked Questions
Drop biscuits are made by dropping the dough onto the pan and baking. These are leavened by baking powder instead of cold butter. They are coined "drop" biscuits since you simply drop the biscuit dough onto the pan instead of rolling and cutting.
Store any leftover biscuits in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, pop them in the microwave or toaster oven until heated through! To freeze, allow them to cool completely and place them in a freezer safe bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat from frozen, pop them in the microwave or oven until heated through.

I made these for my family today and they were absolutely delicious! Recipe worked perfectly even at elevation. I did have to cook a bit longer but I think that's an oven thing, not a recipe thing.
