makes 9 servings
prep time 20 min
cook time 12 min

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk (lactose-free milk is an option)
  • 1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt, honey flavored
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes (extra cold)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • Melted butter for brushing on top of biscuits (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Whisk milk and yogurt together until a thick mixture forms and set aside.

Whisk together oats, flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut butter into flour with a fork until the flour becomes crumbly.

Combine peanut butter and milk mixture in a separate bowl until fully combined. Add this to your flour mixture and stir until everything is just combined. Be careful not to over mix.

Place dough onto a lightly floured surface. Lightly knead the dough a few times.

Roll dough out into a 1 inch-thick disc; be careful not to overwork the dough though.

Using a round cookie cutter/dough cutter push down into dough and lightly twist. Repeat until dough is used up and place on a baking sheet. Dough should make about 9-12 biscuits.*

Brush the tops of each biscuit with a little melted butter, if desired.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown (use the lower oven rack if not brushing with butter).

Let cool on cooling rack for 5 minutes and serve warm with your favorite filling.

Filling suggestions: low-fat yogurt and berry mixture, butter, fat-free cream cheese, jam, apple butter, honey, chocolate, chocolate hazelnut spread, or more peanut butter.


Biscuits stay fresh covered in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. These also freeze well.

These are best served warm, re-toasted in the oven with apple butter or cream cheese on top!
