    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixting bowl.
    3. 3
      Cut in the oil with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    4. 4
      Using a fork, stir in just enough of the milk so that the dry ingredients are moistened and the dough comes together.
    5. 5
      (Too much milk will make the dough sticky; too little will make the biscuits dry.) Gather the dough in a ball and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface.
    6. 6
      Knead it gently 20 to 25 times.
    7. 7
      Then smooth it into a ball.
    8. 8
      Roll or pat the dough into a 1/2-inch thick round and cut it with a floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass.
    9. 9
      Push the center straight down into the dough without twisting it.
    10. 10
      Reroll and recut the scraps of dough.
    11. 11
      Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet about an inch apart for crusty sides or touching for soft sides.
    12. 12
      Bake on the center shelf of the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the bottoms are lightly browned.
    13. 13

      Yummy and hearty. Great to get such wonderful biscuits form whole wheat. Next time I think I will try this with some egg added in to see if it makes them a bit lighter.

      Thank you - this is exactly what I was looking for. The biscuits are very tasty. Whole wheat has a tendency to cook a little on the dry side for me so I added extra liquid so it was a little on the sticky side before baking. To me they turned out perfect.

      The flavor of these biscuits was excellent. I think I kneaded them a bit too long so they didn't come out too flaky. Next time I will have to be more careful. I did replace the canola oil with extra light olive oil...not sure if that had anything to do with it.
