This is a terrific and easy recipe for whole wheat biscuits–they can be finished in 30 minutes, start to finish!


2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 cup safflower oil

Approx. 1/2 cup milk (more or less as needed)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Slowly pour in the oil, mixing with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture is combined.  It will be quite crumbly.  Add the milk a little at a time, using just enough to bring the mixture together.

Gather the dough into a ball, and place on a lightly floured surface.  Knead the dough about 25 times, then smooth the dough into a ball and pat into a 1/2 inch thick round disk.  Use a approx 2 1/2 inch glass or biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits.  Gather the scraps, and repeat until all the dough is used.  You should have between 8 and 10 biscuits.  Place on ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown on top.

    Hi Judy – i see that you called specifically for safflower oil. Do you recommend solely that, or can i use any other light-tasting oil?

    Greetings from Norway:-) Just love your webpage. Just a question; can I use another kind of oil for the biscuits? Olive?

    These look great! Do you have to use saffron oil, or will another oil or melted butter work?

  • judy ALDRIDGE

    You can use any oil. Not sure about melted butter–but I think it would work.

    I just made a batch of these. It was super easy and the biscuits are delicious! Also, I cut the sodium in half by eliminating the additional salt. (The baking powder has enough salt.) I don’t know how they taste with all that extra salt, but my batch was just perfect. Thanks for a good and easy recipe.
