I love biscuits. They’re warm and they make me want to eat jam. I’m not a jam person at all but when I have a biscuit, there’s only two things that go with it, gravy or jam. Okay sometimes butter but I would rather have gravy than butter on my biscuit.
Growing up, we didn’t have traditional biscuits. My mom made drop biscuits. Drop biscuits are made without having to knead the dough and adding in butter.
They’re really easy to make and are a nice addition to a meal.
My mom always made them with Bisquick and in the beginning I did as well.
As I started paying more attention to ingredients and eliminating processed food, Bisquick had to go.
Since drop biscuits are so simple to make, there’s no need to use a boxed mix.
Andrea’s Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits
- 1 1/2C White Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2tsp Baking Powder
A Pinch Of:
- Ground Black Pepper
- Ground Sage
- 1C Unsweetened Coconut Milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone liner. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients and whisk. Slowly add in the coconut milk and stir. This will be a thick batter, keep mixing until all the dry mixture is incorporated in with the coconut milk.
Drop mixture by the spoonful onto the lined baking sheet. Size is up to you, smaller biscuits will have a faster cooking time. Larger biscuits take about 5-7 minutes.
Remove when biscuits are browned on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
These don’t take long at all to cook, so keep an eye on them.
Remove from oven, allow to cool for about a minute and serve.
This is a basic biscuit, once you get the concept and technique down, feel free to play with the flavor! I was pairing these biscuits with something that had a sage flavor to it, hence the sage in the mix. However you are free to use what you like!
If you feel the dough is a bit dry, you can add in more coconut milk but not much, start with a tablespoon.
Naturally you can use milk (though they will not be vegan any longer) or your nondairy beverage of choice, I tend to have coconut milk on hand.
These are begging for some jam or gravy!
