Apple Pie Biscuits


  • For the filling:
  • 1 apple (peeled and thinly sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • For the biscuits:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (don’t melt it!, solid)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • Extra cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place a skillet over medium heat and add apples, cinnamon and sugar. Saute apples in the mixture until apples are somewhat cooked through, but are not mushy. This should take about 4 minutes. Remove the skillet from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar. Stir to combine. Add in the coconut oil, combining with the flour mixture with your hands. You should ‘cut’ the oil into the flour, breaking up the coconut oil into small pieces while combining with flour mixture (Joy’s original recipe has a great step by step guide!). Stir in the almond milk and stir until combined.
  4. Turn the biscuit dough out onto a well floured surface and pat the dough into a rectangle shape. Roll the dough out with a rolling pin into a rectangle that is about 11 by 7 inches. This doesn’t need to be perfect, just make sure the dough is evenly rolled out. Spread the cooked apples onto only side of the rectangle of dough and fold the other side over the apple filled side, pressing together edges to seal. Cut the dough into 8-10 even pieces and place onto prepared cookie sheet. Sprinkle the biscuits with the extra cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Bake for 14 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown.
