Our Easy Drop Biscuits Recipe Uses Simple Ingredients

These delicious homemade, flaky, and buttery drop biscuits will be devoured come dinner time!

Our recipe calls for just a handful of easy, on-hand ingredients. These include butter, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and 1% milk. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something dairy-free, we’ve got you! You can easily make this recipe vegan by subbing in vegan butter for regular butter, and soy milk or coconut milk for 1% milk.

Additionally, for added nutrition, use whole-wheat flour instead of your usual all purpose white. White flour loses nutrition and fiber during processing. Alternatively, whole-wheat flour retains higher amounts of fiber, iron, calcium and protein. Best of all, both taste great when used in pastry recipes!

Although we support an occasional indulgence, we don’t want something so fattening and calorie-dense disrupting your health goals. Our drop biscuit recipe makes it possible to savor the classic pastry without robbing your calorie bank! These carb-friendly biscuits clock in at 180 calories per serving- almost half the amount you’d find in typical recipes!
