I love making my own yogurt, and sometimes I’m looking for unique ways to use it. These whole wheat yogurt biscuits are easy to make and they have a delicious flavor. My children would happily eat a plate of these for dinner, and I sometimes find myself using them as a reward to get the kids to eat a less desirable item on the menu.
These biscuits freeze well, so I like to put some of them in the freezer for a time when I need that extra something to complete a meal. This recipe is adapted from a biscuit recipe in Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian.
Whole Wheat Yogurt Biscuits
$.07 per biscuit
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tbs. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 3 tbs. solid butter or ghee
- 1 cup yogurt
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients in a food processor.
Add the ghee and pulse until combined. It should have a crumb-like texture.
Remove the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the yogurt. The dough should be moist, but not too sticky.
Flour a work surface and roll the dough to a thickness of 1/2 inch to 1 inch. Cut the dough into 2-3 inch circles, and place the discs on a baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately or let the biscuits cool on a rack and freeze them for later use. (Yield is about 16 biscuits.)
