Baking Powder Biscuits

The quest for the perfect biscuit that is also healthy has come to a successful end! These are amazingly tender and flavorful biscuits. They are made with whole wheat flour that I sprouted from wheat berries, just until a little tiny sprout started showing. Then I dehydrated and ground them into flour.

Baking Powder Biscuits

2 cups sprouted whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon Rumford baking powder
1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
1/3 cup cold butter
1 cup cold whole raw milk

Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees F.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk together thoroughly.

Grate the butter into the flour mixture, a small part at a time and stir it in gently to get it covered with flour so the butter pieces won't stick together.

Pour in the milk and stir with a fork, just enough to moisten all of the flour.

Sprinkle a little more of the sprouted flour on your work surface and dump the dough out onto it.

Press the dough until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter and place the biscuits on a baking sheet. You may place them close together OR leave room between them if you like them to be more crispy.

Bake at 500 degrees F for 10 - 12 minutes. Watch them carefully, and bake just until they start to brown on top and the bottoms are browning.

Remove from oven and allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a basket lined with a cloth to serve.

I can't describe the taste of these biscuits. I just know we all love them!
