  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups all purpose baking flour, plus more for flouring surface
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons Sprouts ghee
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Preheat your oven to 425. 

  2. Combine your almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, sift your flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. 

  4. Spoon your ghee into the large bowl and use your hands (in a pinching motion), to mix the ghee and flour together. Do this just until the flour forms into small balls. (Don't over mix.) 

  5. Scrape off the excess ghee from your hands into your bowl. Create a small crater in the middle of the bowl and pour in your almond milk buttermilk mixture, and honey. 

  6. Use a spatula to incorporate the wet and dry ingredients. DON'T OVER MIX. Just mix until the wet and dry are combined. (Yes the dough will seem very sticky.)

  7. Generously flour a clean surface and dump your dough onto it. Sprinkle a generous amount of flour on top of your dough, and flour your hands. Press or roll your dough into a 1" thick rectangular shape. Fold your dough in half, sprinkle more flour onto the top of the dough, and roll or press into a rectangle again. Do this same thing 4-6 times. 

  8. After your dough is in it's final 1" thick rectangle, use a sharp knife to cut your dough into 6 square biscuit shapes. 

  9. Layer a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking oil. Carefully transfer your biscuit to the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the top is golden brown. 

  10. EAT UP.
