Substitutions + Alternatives

Can I use All-Purpose Flour?

Yes, All-Purpose Flour can be used. Use the same amount that is listed in the ingredients, but swap with all purpose.

Can I use regular dairy?

Feel free to make this recipe your own. I used oat milk to make the buttermilk, but feel welcome to choose your preferred dairy option without any recipe adjustments. Unless specified otherwise, you have the flexibility to use the milk of your choice for the recipe.

Note: While almond milk is an option, it is less preferred due to its liquid consistency. Consider opting for a milk alternative with a thicker texture.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh?

Yes, you can use frozen blueberries, but be sure to thaw and drain them well before adding them to the dough to prevent excess moisture.

Can I make these biscuits ahead of time?

While they are best enjoyed fresh, you can prepare the dough ahead of time, cut out the biscuits, and refrigerate them. Bake them when you’re ready to enjoy them.

Can I use a different type of fruit?

Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with other fruits like raspberries, strawberries, or a combination of berries for a delicious twist on this recipe.

How do I store Blueberry Biscuits?

Once they’ve cooled down to room temperature, transfer to an airtight container or a resealable bag. Pop them in the fridge, and they should stay fresh for about 3 to 4 days. You can also freeze them. Just wrap each biscuit individually in plastic wrap, then store them in a freezer bag. When you’re ready to enjoy them, simply thaw them at room temperature or give them a quick warm-up in the oven at 350ºF for 5-10 minutes.
