Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

White whole wheat flour is made with hard white wheat and tastes milder than regular whole wheat and has a lighter color. Since it's milder tasting, it tastes more like white flour and the finished baked goods look more like traditional biscuits. Pastry flour is made with soft wheat (less protein) Submitted by:

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:
