  • 180g / 1½ cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 50g / ½ cup almond meal (you can easily grind up whole almonds in a food processor or blender until they are a flour type consistency)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  • Mix the vinegar with the plant-based milk and set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together.
  • Add the soured milk, and mix until all ingredients are moistened; avoid over-stirring. 
  • Drop large spoonfuls onto a nonstick baking sheet or one lined with parchment paper. 
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. 


The recipe above is at is in The Mindful Vegan book. I personally recommend adding a little extra salt, bringing the total amount to 1 teaspoon. I also found that they were much lighter and fluffier if you add ¼ teaspoon baking soda in addition to the baking powder already included. 
I found an ice cream scoop perfect for spooning the mixture onto the baking tray.
