Whole Wheat Vegan Biscuits

Healthier whole wheat vegan biscuits, perfect for holiday entertaining! Biscuits always had their part in all of our big family dinners.

Strawberry shortcakes were our favorite, especially served with ice cream. Now I wanted to create a healthier version to our traditional white flour biscuits.

I came up with 3 different toasts, so let’s get right into it. My first avocado toast includes strawberries, melted Brie cheese (the best part!), balsamic vinegar and pistachios. I think this one is my favorite. I mean, strawberries, Brie and avocado!? There’s no better combination. Not during summer anyways. If you’re skeptical about adding fruits to your toast, don’t be, it’s the ultimate…
