Dairy Free Biscuits and Gravy

Dairy Free Biscuits & Gravy

Lounging around on Sunday morning watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, seeing Guy sampling the most amazing, intricate breakfasts, meanwhile having baking soda and eggs in my fridge was a struggle. I racked my brain and realized I had almond milk, baking supplies and some deer sausage in my deep freeze meaning I could make sausage gravy and biscuits, without cow!

I found this recipe from Sunshine Recipes and couldn’t wait to try it! I took a few liberties with the recipe, like adding sausage to my gravy and changing the oil amount so I will post my adapted recipe below and you can find the original at the link above.

Being allergic to dairy, this is a dish I have never made, and have never really enjoyed. I was thrilled that I was not only able to make this, but that it tasted as good as when my mother-in-law makes it and I get my one little spoonful!

Dairy Free Biscuits & Gravy



  • 1 cup plain almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp organic refined coconut oil


  • 2 Tbsp organic refined coconut oil
  • 4 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 cups plain almond milk, unsweetened
  • pepper to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1lb Venison Sausage


Biscuit Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl whisk together the almond milk and lemon juice, set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the coconut oil, gently mixing with a spoon after each tablespoon. The flour should resemble sand when all the oil is mixed properly.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Slowly pour in the almond milk mixture while stirring with a spoon until just combined. The dough will be sticky.
  4. Lightly flour a flat surface, and turn the dough onto the flour. Dust some flour on top of the dough and turn the dough GENTLY onto itself 5-6 times, no kneading required. Form into a 1-inch thick disk. Cut the biscuits out of the dough using a glass or biscuit cutter (there should be 6-8 biscuits). Place the biscuits on a prepared baking sheet, just touching at the edges.
  5. Make a divot in the center of each biscuit, and brush tops with melted coconut oil. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden. Serve with white gravy, or jelly and enjoy!

Gravy Directions

  1. In a saucepan over low/medium heat, melt the coconut oil. When melted, whisk in the flour. Slowly pour in the almond milk, whisking as you do so. Allow the mixture to bubble and whisk until desired thickness. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In a separate saucepan cook sausage until browned. Stir into gravy and serve with biscuits.
