This is a light, delicious biscuit using white whole wheat flour which you can usually find at a health food store or co-op. It mixes up quickly and is best eaten right out of the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Make a well in the center.
  3. Pour the combined beaten egg and yogurt into the well, along with the melted butter or oil.
  4. Stir until minimally combined.
  5. Turn out the dough on a floured surface, and knead briefly until it is uniform and smooth.
  6. The dough should be soft and moist.
  7. Roll or pat the dough until it is about 1/3" thick.
  8. Cut into your favorite shapes.
  9. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 450 degree F oven for about 10 minutes.
  10. For variation, you can add herbs, cheese, spices or sugar to the dough to create your own special biscuits.

I made this following directions exactly. On the variation, I did add some garlic and sharp cheddar cheese. They weren't exactly light and fluffy like bisquits made with white flour, but they were good. I used my whole wheat flour I ground myself with my new Whisper Mill. I am trying to convert my whole family to eating healthier whole grains and even my 12 year old son said they were different than my usual bisquits, but they were good. I will make them again to accompany breakfast sometime and ommit the garlic and cheese. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made this, using oil. However, since I am lazy I didn't roll it out or knead it much. I just squished it around and then pressed it somewhat flat, and cut into squares. They still turned out good.
