Drop about 1/4 cupfuls of dough for each biscuit onto large ungreased baking sheet. Brush with 2 tablespoons half & half; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon oats. Bake 8-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.

Recipe Tip

Whole wheat flour is ground from the entire wheat kernel giving baked goods a wholesome, nutty flavor and dense texture. Because this flour contains the fat from the wheat germ portion of the kernel, it can become rancid, so it’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Allow the flour to come to room temperature before using in recipes.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

The best biscuit recipe I have tried. Absolutely delicious. I did one cup white flour and one cup wheat flour. I also added a little more half & half to make the biscuits moister. You can also easily cut this recipe in half which I have done as well.

A trick for cutting in the butter. I don't have a pastry cutter so I grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients with a cheese grater. It works really well and is so easy!
mine turned out to be very soft almost like cake :S are they suppose to be like that?I really liked how they tasted:)
Great flavor and easy to make. I will use it
again and maybe even try it for dumplings. I
used 1 C white flour to keep it light but it is
so good and healthy I will make it a regular
item on my menu.
