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.

  1. Im not sure what happened, having followed the directions, but they came out like hockey pucks. Ah well, perhaps my old favorite, light flaky baking powder biscuits are where I should stay. Thanks for the recipe! ☺️

  2. These are great; the best biscuit recipe I’ve seen yet. Very simple, easy & quick.

    But you don’t really need a food processor. I just mix with clean hands.

    I also use applesauce instead of butter, & add a tablespoon or two of cider vinegar to make the bisquits even lighter & give them a slightly sourdough flavor. Add the vinegar last & mix quickly before it reacts completely with the baking soda.

    Or, to make the bisquits flakier, press & fold the dough a couple of times before baking.

    I also double the ingredients to make twice as many at a time because they freeze so well.
