I’ll just use regular flour!

Hi Melissa, while I haven’t tested the recipe with the following substitutions to make them vegan, many vegan cooks use unsweetened almond milk in place of buttermilk, and vegan “butter” such as Earth Balance in biscuits. I’d add a 1/2 tsp of baking soda in addition to the baking powder for fluff, and be sure your butter is ice cold. If you try them this way, please let us know how it turns out!

Do you have any recommendations on substitutions to make these vegan?

Geraldine Colete, yes!

Can I used margarine instead of butter?

Hi Heidi, I imagine you could, although we haven’t tested the recipe with this substitution.

i was wondering if I could use sugar free syrup or do you have a diabetic friendly recipe?

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
