Made with healthy white whole wheat flour, you don't have to worry about eating a fun comfort food like white whole wheat biscuits anymore.
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, cubed
  • ¾ - 1 cup buttermilk (or yogurt, or milk plus 1 T lemon juice)
  1. Put flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a food processor (see note). Blend until well combined.
  2. Add cubed butter and pulse until butter is broken down to pieces no larger than peas. Mixture should look almost sandy.
  3. Add ¾ cups of buttermilk (or buttermilk substitute) and pulse until mixture almost comes together. Mixture will be clumpy, but shouldn’t feel dry. If it is very dry, you can add additional liquid a little at a time and re-pulse.
  4. Dump mixture out on to floured surface and knead until it just comes together. Form into 4 x 8 rectangle, then cut into 8 biscuits (or 6 if you’d like larger biscuits).
  5. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 400 F until slightly golden, about 15 minutes.
  6. Serve warm or cold.
If you don't have a food processor, you can mix by hand using a fork or pastry blender. Just be sure not to overwarm or overmix.
