These healthy biscuits came out absolutely perfect.
Welcome to part 2 of my chicken biscuit series: the biscuit.
The other day I decided I was going to make from scratch healthy chicken biscuits and that is exactly what I did. It was quite possibly one of the best decisions I have ever made… and one of the best things I have ever eaten. I am absolutely in love with these biscuits and you will be too. You definitely need to make the crispy oven baked chicken to go with your biscuit!
These biscuits are… everything I need in life. Buttery, flaky, and amazing. They are made with super simple ingredients you probably already have sitting in your pantry! Try these out and I’m sure you will love them as much as I do!
ingredients in healthy biscuits
I was not kidding when I said the ingredients were simple… you probably already have every single one of these ingredients in your house.
how to make healthy biscuits
start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees
mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and coconut sugar
add the cold butter cubes into the flour mixture and mush it in with your fingers until it is evenly distributed in about pea sized pieces
then knead in the milk. roll the dough out onto a floured surface until the dough is about 1 inch thick.
use a glass or biscuit cutter to cut out circles. lay the biscuits onto a greased pan and brush on melted butter (optional)
bake for 12-17 minutes. serve and enjoy!
- flour- replace with 1:1 gluten free flour
- coconut sugar- replace with regular sugar
- butter- replace with vegan butter
- whole milk- replace with milk of choice (less fatty milks will leave the biscuits more dry)
