Secret Recipe Club: Pumpkin Wheat Biscuits

For this month’s Secret Recipe Club assignment, I had Anne Jisca’s blog, Healthy Pursuits. Anne has a lot of healthy recipes on her site, and a lot of breads, which I love.  I was in the mood for something that didn’t require yeast and a lengthly rise time though, as I’ve been fighting a cold.  Enter biscuits!  This recipe doesn’t really rise like your traditional biscuits, but they’re still tasty.  I enjoyed one for breakfast, warmed up in the oven with a little butter and jam.  They’re not very sweet though, so these could easily accompany a savory meal as well.  You could also play around with different flours, and probably use different purees like sweet potato or butternut squash to change up the flavors a bit.  Check out the rest of this week’s recipes below!

Pumpkin Wheat Biscuits, adapted from Anne Jisca’s Healthy Pursuits

  • 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 3 Tbsp butter (I used Earth Balance)

Whisk together dry ingredients. Cut in butter until the mixture is pea-sized chunks. Add pumpkin and milk, stir well. Generously flour a work surface and your hands. Roll or pat out 1/2″ thick, and cut into circles, using a biscuit cutter, or cup.  Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat. Bake for 12 minutes at 375F, or until golden brown.

    Mmm, they look yummy. And you’re right, they are not very sweet, but it’s how I tend to like my biscuits! 😉 I love them with honey or maple syrup on top, yum!

  6. I made biscuits for today’s SRC post too. I want to try these with the pumpkin. They look super good.
