These were good. I am still learning how to make a recipe lower fat and how to use white wheat, so this is a good model. Ironically, my adult daughter missed the higher fat content! Submitted by:

I used salted butter because I don't have unsalted and omitted the salt. I also had to make my own buttermilk. I also added equal parts of thyme, rubbed sage and chives. Even after doubling the sugar, I found them bland. Will try to make these with what the recipe calls for next time. Submitted by:

I omit the sugar and the milk glaze when I make buttermilk biscuits. You can also make these with rye flour instead of the whole wheat for a lower glycemic index. I make my own biscuit mix so often use that instead of doing the scratch thing. Submitted by:

You can also make biscuits by just using self rising flour and water...drop onto parchment paper...no fat...great with gravy, or to make a sandwich or to put fruit spread on Submitted by:

I'm planning to try this, but wonder why it includes sugar? I've never put sugar in biscuits. Submitted by:

Honest to Pete!! Another SUPER recipe with lower carbs. Easy, healthy and light. Added cheddar and peppers are great with seafood gumbo or chicken soup! Thanks - I don't feel deprived. Submitted by:
