Prep Time

35 min


  • 2 1/2 cups whole spelt flour    

  • 2 tsp baking powder 

  • 1/2 tsp each baking soda and ground cinnamon 

  • 1/8 tsp sea salt 

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil 

  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk 

  • 1/2 cup all-fruit unsweetened strawberry jam 

  • 1 tsp peeled and grated ginger


  • 1/2 cup diced strawberries   

  • 2 tbsp full-fat coconut milk 

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cashew cream icing

  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews

  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, prepare biscuits: In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

2. Using a fork, cut coconut oil into flour mixture. Once incorporated, make a well in the center of the mixture and add in ½ cup coconut milk, jam, ginger and vinegar; whisk together.

3. Combine wet with dry ingredients and knead until it forms a sticky dough. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Using floured hands, roll 12 balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheets; flatten each slightly. Top with diced strawberries then brush with 2 tbsp coconut milk and sprinkle with cinnamon.

4. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside to cool. Drizzle Cashew Cream Icing (if using) over biscuits.

Cashew Cream Icing (optional) – To a food processor or high-powered blender, add all ingredients plus 2 tbsp water. Process or blend until smooth and drizzle over biscuits. If not eating right away, store in a resealable container in the refrigerator.
