Try It Out Tuesdays: Soft whole wheat biscuits

Hello everyone,
Today has been one of those rainy then humid then rainy then gloomy days that just make you want to stay indoors curled up in a blanket with a nice cup of tea.
There’s something about tea – you don’t enjoy it as much unless it is accompanied by a biscuit. So, I went on a mission to make soft, moist biscuits even though all I had was whole wheat flour.

Ingredients
2 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp evoo
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup almond milk

1. Preheat oven to 425F

2. Mix together in a medium sized bowl the flour, the baking powder and the salt. Then add in evoo & mix well.

3. In a separate small bowl (I did this in a large measuring cup) mix in the yogurt and almond milk. Add in the baking soda and mix well.

4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until a dough is formed. If the mixture is too dry, add a little bit of almond milk – a spoonful at a time until you get the dough into a rolling consistency. Knead dough 2 or 3 times.

5. Turn out dough into a lightly floured surface and roll it out to about a 3/4″ thickness and cut biscuits. I don’t have a rolling pin in my new home, so I just extended my dough. It is easy to handle. I also just used a drinking glass to cut out my circles. I dont have a biscuit cutter.

6. Bake in a cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes at 425F. Enjoy!!

My biscuits came out a little smallish so I was able to get 15 of them out of the dough. I imagine you should be able to get 8-10 regular sized biscuits if you follow this recipe.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you’re having a great week!! If you try out this recipe, let me know.
