Fast & Easy Low Fat Drop Biscuits

Total Time
Prep 8 mins
Cook 15 mins

These are easy and fast to make in your food processor (though you could do it by hand). They are slightly non-traditional biscuits in that they don't use shortening, but they are very tasty and work great when dunked into soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder& baking soda, and salt into your food processor.
  3. (Or you can do it by hand. The food processor is much easier, though.) Pulse once or twice to mix.
  4. Then add the oil and pulse a few times until it appears mixed.
  5. Add the sour cream and pulse until the dough comes together (sort of into a ball but not really).
  6. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet you have sprayed with non-stick spray.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

I was very surprised how good these turned out. I used Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. It worked great. For an easy pot pie, I spooned them over pre-cooked chicken, veggies, and low fat gravy.

Very easy to make but they didn't have much flavor but also didn't taste like diet biscuits. Next time I was wondering about putting the balls of dough into a round cake pan for pull apart biscuits -- I think they would work well this way. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent recipe! I just wish my food processor attachment were larger. Thank you for the recipe!
