Following a vegan diet is simple, it is avoiding foods that come from any type of animal. This includes foods like eggs, milk, cheese, and even honey, and in turn consuming foods like legumes, fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts, etc. So, making these vegan almond flour biscuits would eliminate the traditional milk, eggs, and butter that most buttermilk biscuits are prepared with.
