My Whole Wheat Biscuit Recipe is great if you’re looking for a healthier biscuit recipe! To my surprise, the kids liked them a lot. They don’t rise much at all, so cutting them in half to make a sausage biscuit would be a little difficult, but we pair these with Homemade Beautyberry Jelly, syrup, or Strawberry Jam instead!

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

These are not your normal fluffy biscuit, but they are tasty! They go great with homemade jelly!


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour – I love Trader Joe's Brand
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp cold butter (diced)
  • 1 cup milk


  1. In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Fold the butter into the flour mixture
  3. Stir in the milk, and mix until a dough forms.
  4. Knead the dough, a few times while still in the bowl.
  5. Dust your work area with flour
  6. Roll out the dough and cut. I use a cup turned upside down to cut my Biscuits!
  7. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 450 for 10 -12 minutes.


Enjoy these whole wheat biscuits with homemade beautyberry jelly or pear butter, and with strawberry jam.

These are surprisingly good for being whole wheat, but if you’re looking for a scrumptious buttery biscuit I have just the recipe for you! Check out my Butter Biscuit Recipe.

Another cool way to make biscuits is to make drop biscuits.

I was very surprised last time I made these. One of my boys said they kinda taste like pancakes.

These biscuits freeze well. Make a whole bunch ahead of time to save some trouble of making breakfast every morning!

  1. These are surprisingly delicious for being whole wheat! I was so skeptical but since we are trying to eat more whole grains I thought we would try them. They are amazing with jelly too!
