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. These are awesome! This is the first whole wheat biscuit recipe I have tried that didn’t turn out like hockey pucks! I too used greek yogurt. My whole family loved them. Annemarie, thanks for another healthy, delicious winner! BTW- to others out there struggling with biscuits, the other tip I learned is that the more you work the dough, the less they rise. So if you don’t care about how your biscuits look, just cut the dough into rectangles (by pressing down with the knife, not sawing) and that avoids having scraps you need to reshape.

      1. Yes, Cortney, that will work. The texture will be slightly different, but it should still taste great. Let me know if you try it.

  2. I just have to tell you how much we love these biscuits. My husband practically swoons when he sees them on the table! So easy and just the right accompaniment to a hearty soup or chili.

    1. Thanks so much, Amber! I’m very glad to hear that. We love them too. I have some extra yogurt in the fridge right now so I’ll be making a batch soon.

  3. These biscuits were awesome! This is the 3rd whole wheat/clean biscuit recipe we’ve tried and these were by far the best tasting. We used plain greek yogurt and they tasted just like a buttermilk biscuit. Thanks so much for the recipe, it’s our new go-to for biscuits!! One question- how do you suggest reheating them from frozen?

    1. Thanks, Amy! We love them too. I don’t have a microwave, so I either set them on the counter to defrost during the day or I put them in a covered container in the oven to defrost.

  4. Do you freeze them before or after you bake them? I love to have some of these on hand when the day is a little too hectic to make from scratch.

  5. What a great twist on the classic cream biscuit! I love that you made them healthier! I really need to try making yogurt! I feel left out! 🙂

  6. We love warm biscuits straight out of the oven, with some butter and jam 🙂 Bookmarking this now to make very soon!

  7. I would like to try this recipe. My husband cannot have butter/fats. Can you think of something I can use for a replacement?
