Whole Wheat Biscuit Recipe

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Then add:

  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt (I used Plain Greek Yogurt)

Knead together until well combined. Put dough onto a floured surface, and roll to 1 inch thick.  Cut out with a biscuit cutter, or cookie cutters.  Dough will be a bit crumbly, so just keep pushing the dough together to form shapes.

Why should you include whole wheat in your diet?

  • Helps balance blood sugar (and trust me, you know if your child’s blood sugar is low… they get super cranky!)
  • Weight control.  According to WHFoods, a large scale study showed those who ate more whole grains, consistently weighed less than those who ate refined grains.
  • Whole wheat is rich in fiber.
  • The bran and germ portion of the grain has vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, and iron…. all which are lost during refining.

I’ll tell you one benefit for me in using whole wheat over white flour products, is merely portion control.  In our home, if there is a bag of white bread, it is eaten 3 times faster than our whole wheat bread.

I like the puffiness of these biscuits, but the amount of salt definitely needs to be cut down.

How firm do these end up? I have 9m twin girls and am looking for a naturalish teething biscuit/healthy grain finger food. Thanks!

Gabrielle, they are soft and bread-like!

Hi Rachel,
Since it’s only ¼ of powdered milk, I bet you could get away with not using it at all! If you try it, let me know!

Rachel says:

These look so good! Any substitutions for the powdered milk?

[…] Snacks  Add comments Dec 192010   I saw this recipe for Whole Wheat Biscuits on Super Healthy Kids and thought it would be a good one to make with Oscar for Christmas.  It was only as I was making […]

Sandra says:

Great recipe. We call these scones in Australia and they turned out great. The dough wasn’t crumbly at all – maybe the Australian ingredients were a bit different. They also keep really well.

Nisha says:

I need to make these! My Little Man is being anti grains lately, but will eat muffins/roll form.

Our biscuts were always so boring. This is a fun idea! Thanks

Yum!! I would love it with dried cranberries!

Kudos on another great whole grain recipe! I love the yogurt, way to add a little more calcium. I think I’ll try these out with some dried cranberries for an extra Holiday kick. Thanks!
