Can I use other flours?
I don’t recommend it, as this recipe has been specifically tested with almond flour. Coconut flour is only needed if you cut the biscuits into shapes.
How can I tell my biscuits are done baking?
When the biscuits start to turn slightly brown on the bottom, it’s time to take them out of the oven. Follow recommended baking times for best results.
Can I use another variation of cheesy sauce?
Yes! The taste will change, but this would be delicious for variety.
What can I serve these cheesy biscuits with?
These are delicious with a small spread of your favorite Cashew Cheesy Sauce or with butter. Pair with vegan cheesy chili or cheesy cauliflower soup to make it a full meal.
