How to make Super Savory Homemade Biscuits from Scratch

We've all had basic biscuits-  rounded white puffs of flour- or perhaps Bisquick- that go so well with butter, jam, and jelly - but there are definitely more savory options for those who get tired of the same old thing.

This recipe for biscuits is absolutely delicious - and healthy.  Made with whole wheat flour, milk, and olive oil, these biscuits have an incredibly warm taste to them, and are also very easy to prepare.  They go great with butter, goat cheese, yogurt, or a sophisticated jam or jelly.  I hope you give them a try - you'll wonder why you hadn't gone to making biscuits from scratch earlier!

Ingredients

  • 240 grams whole wheat flour (2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2.7 ounces olive oil (1/3 cup)
  • 5.25 ounces milk (2/3 cup)
  • Freshly cut rosemary to garnish (TOTALLY optional)

Adding sprigs of rosemary to the top of these biscuits adds a pretty flourish, plus makes your kitchen smell delightful when the biscuits are baking

Procedure

  1. Mix dry ingredients (you COULD sift them together, but I don't think that's necessary)
  2. Add the milk and olive oil and mix
  3. Add rosemary sprigs as a garnish if you like
  4. Bake at 425 degrees (F) for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top

Notes

I use nonfat milk, but but feel free to use the type of your choice.  You can also substitute canola oil for olive oil, though I think olive oil gives them a wonderful warm flavor and texture, plus I think the smell of olive-oil-infused biscuits cooking with rosemary garnished on top is exquisite.

I like the herbs on top. It's a nice touch.
