I love biscuits and gravy in the morning, but these biscuits are so much healthier than the typical bisquick! Of course these biscuits can be made with a variety of things, but we've always made them with our Vegan Breakfast Biscuit Gravy or with some yummy jam in the morning. Originally from Patricia LaVanture's cooking program.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the water, honey or sugar, yeast and 3/4 cup each of the whole wheat and Golden White flours.
  2. together. Let stand until light, about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the other 3/4 cup of each type of flour, along with the remaining ingredients and knead lightly.
  4. Roll or pat out on a lightly oiled counter top to 3/4-inch thickness. Dust top of dough with flour. Cut with biscuit cutter or glass dipped in flour.
  5. Place cut biscuits on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Let rise on pan 15 - 20 minutes,then bake at 350°F until light brown, about 15 minutes.

Worked well as a biscuit topping for Biscuit Topped Chicken Casserole (#38838).

I'm sure it's me, because I'm a lousy baker... but mine barely rose at all & are very dry. I'll be trying them again because they are certainly healthier & they taste ok, but so far it seems that I must have done something wrong. Also, they're more like bread (due to the yeast, I'd guess) than biscuits.

I generally would make my biscuits with butter and milk but for various reasons I needed a vegan version. Considering the ingredients I would give these biscuits 5 stars. This recipe is more than perfect if you need vegan whole wheat biscuits and are not a fan of soy milk. Compared to butter and milk biscuits I would probably rate them 4.75 stars. They taste almost as good, but who doesn't love butter. An excellent biscuit all around. I like forward to trying this recipe in the future substituting butter for the oil.
