Baby its cold outside
And I need some biscuits in my life! Now, Ive made some simple biscuits in the past, like my 3 ingredient biscuits or even these low carb ones that I paired with gravy. Today though, I wanted to stay simple and have some biscuits on hand for breakfast sandwiches this week. I didnt want just any old biscuit though, I wanted them to be whole wheat this time around!
I took some of the basics from my 3 ingredient biscuits and made the needed adjustments to turn them into whole wheat biscuits instead. Of course the thing that made the 3 ingredient version was the self-rising flour.
Being as its almost impossible to find a self-rising whole wheat flour, I made my own homemade self-rising whole wheat flour by mixing whole wheat white flour with some baking powder and salt. Yep! Thats all it takes to make your own self-rising flour!
These biscuits are super simple. Mix, mix, mix, cut out and bake. Just be careful not to over mix the dough or they wont rise up as much as you might want. And being as these are made with whole wheat flour, they arent as light and fluffy as other biscuits out there. These are a more bready and dense biscuit, great for soaking up soups or stews.
Like I said, I turned my biscuits into breakfast sandwiches for this week. But, you can do anything with them that your little heart desires. Use them in any way that you would any other biscuit. Simply with some jam or jelly, along side some gravy, or even with a soup or stew!Whole Wheat Vegan Biscuits
