Easy Vegan Cheddar Bay Biscuits
These easy vegan cheddar bay biscuits are going to change the game for you..Jump to Recipe Card
Bold statement, I know. But when I tell you that these easy vegan cheddar bay biscuits were a HUGE hit in my house, I truly mean it. Also, I thought my husband was going to eat them after he tasted one and immediately picked up another one before finishing the first one lol . And it did not take long for these to disappear from the table. Besides, they’re best served piping hot, right?! Just wish there were unlimited amounts showing up randomly on my table lol but making a big batch is always a good idea.
If you were obsessed with the Red Lobster biscuits like I was (I mean, wasn’t everyone?!) then these vegan cheddar bay biscuits will be your new favorite biscuits! And I love how easily they come together too! Furthermore, they are made with only a handful of ingredients. You can whip them up in a food processor like I do, to keep the work minimal! Here is what you’ll need to make these:
Vegan Cheddar Bay Biscuit Ingredients:
Old Bay or Creole seasoning
Butter (I love the Miyoko’s or Country Crock non-dairy sticks)
plant milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
Vegan Cheddar Cheese (I used the cheddar cheese block by Miyoko’s)
Important notes and info:
Can I make these biscuits gluten free?
I personally have not tried substituting the AP flour for gluten free flour, so I can’t promise you will receive the same results. Also, if you do give it a try please let us know in the comments!
Why are they called Cheddar Bay Biscuits?
They are typically seasoned with Old Bay seasoning in the dough. Another great option is you can also use any good Creole seasoning. It’ll turn out great either way!
Do I need to use a specific sugar?
Nope, use whichever sugar you prefer! Equally important, I just wouldn’t recommend using a liquid sweetener as it could throw off the ratio of dry to wet ingredients.
Can I substitute the butter with oil?
I have not tried it and I’m not sure I would recommend it. It will compromise the texture of the dough and may not yield good results. I would recommend sticking to cold butter.
Are these biscuits easy to make without a food processor?
Of course! It’ll require more elbow grease but you will still end up with delicious and buttery biscuits! 🙂 Make sure not to overmix though!

Easy Vegan Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Copycat Vegan Red Lobster Biscuits)
- Food processor
- 1 cup All-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp sugar
- ½ tbsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp Old Bay seasoning
- ¼ cup cold butter salted
- ½ cup plant milk
- ⅔ cup vegan Cheddar cheese
- 1 tsp parsley
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Add all of the dry ingredients to the food processor. Pulse to combine.
- Add in the cold, cubed butter and pulse to combine. You’re looking for a crumbly texture.
- Add in plant milk (I used unsweetened almond milk). Pulse until it just starts to come together into a dough.
- Lastly, add in the Cheddar cheese and pulse until it’s evenly dispersed. Don’t over mix.
- Using a cookie scoop, spoon even amounts of dough onto a lined baking tray.
- Bake in a 450F oven for 10-12 minutes (depending on the size of your biscuit). They should just barely start to brown.
- While the biscuits are baking, melt 2 tbsp butter and mix in the parsley.
- Brush the tops of the biscuits with the butter mixture when they’re fresh out of the oven.
