No Eggs No Milk Homemade Dinner Biscuits #SugarFree #Vegan

No Eggs No Milk Homemade Dinner Biscuits #SugarFree #Vegan | Nevermore Lane

Have you ever had one of those days when you are out of everything important but you just can’t get to the store? Ever have someone decide at the last minute they want biscuits with their dinner?

Yeah, me too.  This isn’t common for me because I make sure I have the things I need on hand. But, it was the weekend. The middle of the day. We decide we wanted rolls with our meal. Quick check in the freezer told me that I did not have any on hand. Ok. I’m ok. We’ll just whip some up.

Nope. Not going to happen. We had just used the milk and eggs for breakfast and a dessert we were working on. Oh boy. Dinner was almost done so I decided to see if there was such a thing as a roll or biscuit that did not require eggs or milk.

Oh, please. Oh, please.

I’d like to thank this pin with a recipe made by The Lovely Side for saving my life.

Ok, maybe it wasn’t that drastic. But, there is nothing like the feeling of my family wanting something with their meal and I can’t provide that for them. I like to think I can make just about anything so I was willing to give anything a try.

So we loaded up the ingredients, mixed it in the bowl and sat there wondering if we had missed something. We made the first batch and they were rather thin and didn’t make many.  I was worried they would not taste good, but then I reminded them that they Irish Soda Bread all the time and it’s a simple recipe as well. We tasted. We enjoyed. We felt the thin version was great to enjoy with some tea and a bit of jam. But, we wanted biscuits to eat with dinner, not with tea. In all fairness, she didn’t mean for her biscuits to be anything more than tea biscuits. 😉

I made another batch. This time I tripled the ingredients.


We had bigger biscuits suitable for dinner food.homemade biscuits


3 cups flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
9 TBSP oil
1 cup water
1 1/2 tsp salt


Preheat your oven to 450.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together.
Add the oil and water.
Use your hands to mix again.
Kneed the dough on a floured surface for a minute.
Roll the dough until it is about an inch thick.
Use a biscuit cutter (round cookie cutter works too) to cut out the biscuits.
Place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Serve warm.

Makes 6-12 depending on your size.

  1. I like biscuits with dinner. They are so amazing with melted butter. I make homemade honey butter and that would be be sooooo good on these.

  2. I am always running out of basic ingredients so I’m filing this away for the next time it happens. I’m also really hungry now I’ve seen those rolls!

  11. Love these!!!! Just found out me and my kids have a milk alergy so I had to learn to make my own bread. This recipe has been amazing. Think I’ve made it 3 times in 3 days:) I double the recipe and get lovely fluffy tall biscuits. Pilsbury ain’t got nothin on me:) I put a third less salt too. Thank you so much. These have made me a happy mama!

    1. Yah! I am SOOOOOOO glad. I love them too and switch the recipe around a bit as well. I am glad you were able to work with them.

  12. These biscuits are amazing! I switch out for whole wheat flour and add an extra 5 teaspoons of water to combat the dryness. I make these recipes every time I make spaghetti. My husband loves them! Thanks for the recipe!!

  13. Yum! We didn’t have any bread in the house or any milk or eggs, lol. So I found this recipe and tried it with white whole wheat flour- so yummy! I love how easily they came together and they are good with honey. With jelly, they are toddler approved too!

    1. I am SO happy that you found these and were able to whip up a batch. I love making them. So simple and I do the same – honey or jelly!

    1. Thank you for giving them a try! I am glad they worked out for you. I keep telling myself I really need to make a batch and take some new pics. 🙂

  15. I added cinnamon and sugar to the mix and dusted them with the sugar and cinnamon before bakjng..delish

  16. I had vegan guests here for breakfast this morning and like you, found I was seriously lacking in ingredients to make a pastry to go with breakfast. This recipe was a lifesaver. I had some wonderful lemon olive oil on hand, so I used a tablespoon of that as part of the oil in the recipe. It gave just a hint of lemon to the biscuits. Guests loved them and asked me for the recipe.
