Fat Free, Low Cal Biscuits!

"Let me start off by saying HALLELUJAH!! My parents are BIG biscuit eaters, and dinner every night is a battle for me to turn down the biscuits. I adapted this recipe from a traditional "mayo" biscuit, and it is yummy! They come out very fluffy and are not cursed with the nasty baking powder flavor that most healthy biscuits have. I hope to soon experiment with oat flour in this recipe!! This is by far one of my favorite healthified recipes!"

    Thank you SOOOOO much! I LOVE biscuits but, now that I'm dieting, I can't eat the full-flavor ones for a number of reasons. This recipe was perfect. Tasted like Bisquick drop biscuits. I used light mayo and 2% mill because that's what I had on hand but boy did they hit the spot! Thanks again for biscuits I can enjoy guitlessly.

    These were pretty good for low cal biscuits. I followed it exactly and made 6 medium size biscuits. All gone so I'd say they were good.

    These were so easy to make and no one knew they were low-fat. I will definitely keep this recipe handy, these win hand-over-fist over canned biscuits! Thanks for posting a keeper! Made for Fall 2009 PAC,

    Absolutely love this recipe!! My fat free phobic husband ate 3 of them without realizing they were “diet food”. Made just as the recipe instructs, the biscuits are delicious and only 2 smartpoints! Will be very light brown and fluffy. Great recipe.

    We love these biscuits because they are really good when dieting.I did not have self rising flour one day or skim milk so I subbed 3tsps. Baking powder and some salt.I then used 6 T buttermilk.They were excellent but be careful in trying to get them browner as they will get hard.Thank you health nut,genius!

Now, 30 lbs lighter and a sophmore in college, I have discovered a passion for healthy cooking and am always on the lookout for new recipes and "experiments!"
