Whole Wheat Biscuits

 From Food.com

This recipe has the approval of The Canadian Diabetes  Association

 

Makes 12 biscuits

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons margarine or 2 tablespoons butter

1 cup skim milk

 

For herb biscuits toss,1/4 teaspoon basil

1/4 teaspoon thyme and 1 teaspoon dried parsley into your flour mixture before you add the milk. (See Sally’s Notes)

 

Directions:

 

Combine flours, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

Cut in margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives.

Add milk, mix quickly.

Turn out onto a floured board.

Knead 6 to 8 times.

Roll 1/4 inch thick.

Cut into 12, 2 inch round biscuits or into wedges or squares.

Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake in a 425°F oven 12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.

 

(These make great dumplings).

 

Sally’s Notes:  Nutrition information below. I made these without the herbs because I was using them for sweet and savory. If I was using them for ham biscuits or to serve with eggs or gravy I would have added the herbs. We ate them with a little homemade blackberry preserves. (A gift. I did not make that!) Then I made some sandwiches with them.  I am not much of a baker but they came out great and have so much less fat and calories than regular biscuits.
