Vegan Cheesy Zucchini Biscuits

These are delicious biscuits for a Sunday morning breakfast or brunch. Our zucchini plants have been very generous this year so we have been dreaming up all kinds of uses for zucchini. This is one of the best. We really enjoyed these biscuits this morning. They are quick and easy to make and only take 15 minutes to bake.
