Easy Peasy Biscuits

I love that I can make these biscuits and have enough left over to freeze for another meal. They're a healthier version of a classic American staple. —Amanda West, Shelbyville, Tennessee
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup solid coconut oil
  • 1-1/2 cups 2% milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450°. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, flaxseed and salt. Add coconut oil and cut in with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until moistened.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8-10 times. Pat or roll dough to a rectangle 1/2 in. thick; fold dough into thirds (as you would a letter). Pat or roll dough again into a rectangle 1/2 in. thick; cut with a pizza cutter or knife into 24 biscuits, each about 2-1/2 in, square. Place 1 1/2 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until light brown, 8-10 minutes. Serve warm.
  • Freeze option: Freeze cut biscuit dough on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until firm. Transfer to airtight containers; return to freezer. To use, bake biscuits as directed.
  • Freeze option: Freeze cooled baked biscuits in airtight containers. To use, heat in a preheated 350° oven 15-20 minutes.

    I love cooking with coconut oil. I added a little Parmesan cheese to the recipe. Delicious! Thank you, Amanda, for sharing this recipe.
