Kate and Corey’s Biscuits

This recipe actually comes from Corey’s mom, Sarah, but we have made them all over for our friends and always receive requests when we visit. Below is the basic recipe, but you can add in whatever you like. As a base, I always like adding a chopped up banana and a mixture of seeds to the dry mix before the final stir and bake. The banana adds a sweet softness that goes well with any meal. Corey prefers them without the fruit and instead likes them as a base for all kinds of spreads. They are quick and easy to make and hit the spot if you are craving any kind of bread, muffin, scone type add-in for your meal.

Kate and Corey’s Biscuits

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour (I use spelt but you can use what you want. If you want GF, try a mixture of rice flour and GF baking flour.)
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tbs salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 6 tbs olive oil or melted butter (I prefer to use olive oil)
  • 3/4 cup milk (I use soy milk but you can use whatever you have on hand.)
  • 2 tbs honey or agave

Preheat oven to 450 F / 230 C and cover a pan with tinfoil or baking paper for easy clean-up

1. Mix or sift the dry ingredients together. Add in to this mix any extras (chopped banana, nuts, herbs, whatever)

2. In another bowl or cup mix together the wet ingredients

3. Pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredient mixture and lightly stir. Biscuits are like muffins, so do not over mix. Add more flour if you need. The mixture should still be a bit blotchy… doesn’t need to be fully blended.

4. Use a 1/3 cup measuring utensil (or your own size determination) to plop the biscuits onto a baking tray covered in tinfoil or baking paper. You can also put all of the mixture onto the baking tray, flatten slightly and cut into pieces for more of a clean cut look.

5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
