Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Just Another Meatless Monday #65 100% Whole Wheat Biscuits


Just Another Meatless Monday #65 100% Whole Wheat Biscuits

Hey What's For Dinner

Halfway through making supper tonight I made the awful realization we were out of milk, ack! Right as I was about to add some to the fresh whole wheat biscuits I was in the middle of making, too. Ugh, no time to run to the store or make something else the dough was made, dinner was almost done, but someone had finished the milk. You have GOT to love teenagers, right?

So I punted, I used yogurt instead, figuring it's just cultured milk and it's better than nothing. And you know what? They turned out awesome. Tangy and light with a nutty whole wheat crunch, holy cow now I'm hungry again. I put out homemade butter, dandelion jelly and wild rose jelly to go with them but they were good without anything on them at all.

100% Whole Wheat Biscuits
oven 450˚

1/2 cup cold butter, cut in chunks
2 cups 100% whole wheat flour+extra for dusting
1 TBSP sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
2/3 cup yogurt

in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade add the butter chunks
sift the the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl
add them to the food processor pulse until well combined and the mixture resembles coarse crumbs
add the yogurt and pulse until combine
remove to a lightly floured counter and knead gently a few times
flatten the dough and cut out 10-12 biscuits
the scraps can be gathered and made into biscuits bites or kids initials
bake at 450˚ for 18-20 minutes
the thicker you make your biscuits the longer they will take to bake completely

Peace and Love--


  1. That's fantastic Laura, what a great save! Your biscuits do look just wonderful, and really healthy with the whole wheat flour and yogurt. There's nothing like fresh biscuits, hot from the oven!

  2. Love these biscuits with the WW flour and yogurt! I've got to try them, thanks!

  3. Yummy, those biscuits looks so good! Thank you for hosting : )

  4. They look wonderful. A similar thing happened to me years ago and now I only make biscuits with yogurt. They even stay fresh and moist longer.

  5. This recipe looks so killer! What do you think about the sunday premeire of Extreme Chef?? Rattlesnake for breakfast?! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3J824ZuGXA
