Who doesn't love a light, tender buttermilk biscuit? These Easiest 100% Whole-Wheat Biscuits have the delicious tang of buttermilk and a mild, nutty whole-wheat flavor without being heavy or dense. They are so easy to make with just six ingredients; you can have them on your table in no time!
Ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 5 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch cubes
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. cold buttermilk
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together white whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add in the cold butter pieces and use your fingertips to quickly work the butter into the flour by pressing the butter into the flour between your fingertips. Much of the flour will not yet be incorporated with the butter, what you want is for the largest butter pieces to be the size of small peas.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk in three additions, using a fork to mix after each addition until a dough forms. Transfer the dough and any remaining flour bits to a lightly floured work surface. Use your hands to quickly fold the dough a few times to work in any remaining flour, being careful not to over-work the dough. Press the dough into a 1-inch-thick circle.
  5. Use a 2 ½-inch biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits; place them on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Re-form the scraps into a new circle of dough as needed. Bake biscuits for 12 minutes, until golden brown.
