Lil’ bun loves her biscuits but the store bought ones can sometimes get really unhealthy because of the high butter content in them. The flakier it is, the more buttery it is, the better it tastes, but the worse it is for you. The biscuits I make at home have less than 2 tablespoons of coconut oil for 6 of them and they probably only have a fraction of the calories as the store bought ones too!
Ingredients (6 biscuits):
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar (or cane sugar)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil (or margarine)
2 tablespoons almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground flax+3 tablespoon water (or 1 egg)
3 tablespoons dried currants/raisins
2 tablespoons chopped dried apricots (optional)
Slide on into the kitchen:
1. Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl then cut in the margarine with a pastry cutter or knives until it resembles pea sized crumbs.
2. Pour the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and the flax egg into the dry ingredients. Then stir in the currants and dried apricots until a dough comes together.
