The Easiest Biscuits You’ll Ever Make

You might think that making good biscuits you need tons of butter and buttermilk.  But my friends that is not the case.  In this recipe there is no butter, no buttermilk or regular milk.  And these biscuits are made with only…wait for it, wait for it…4 Ingredients! (not including salt).  How is this done?  I’m going to tell you.  But first let me brag a little bit more about these biscuits.

These biscuits are soft, dense and have such great flavor.  They’re an excellent vehicle for breakfast sandwiches.   And are perfect for jam and nut butter sandwiches.

Because butter is not added, the biscuits are not flaky.  However they are slightly chewy, fluffy and will satisfy any biscuit craving without the extra calories butter can give.  As a matter of fact between the einkorn flour and the nut milk there’s definitely more protein in these biscuits than fat. 🙂

From start to finish it will take only about 20 minutes to have soft delicious biscuits on the table.  The recipe produces enough biscuits for 2 to 4 people but can be doubled to make more.

I’ve made these biscuits in regular size and in mini size as shown in the picture above.  By using a small round cutter about 2 to 2 1/2 inches, smaller biscuits can be made which will generate more biscuits.

The Recipe

The most important ingredient in this recipe is the einkorn flour.  I’ve talked about einkorn flour  numerous times on this blog and why?  It’s because einkorn flour is the best flour ever and it’s the easiest flour to digest.  Also einkorn has wonderful flavor unlike regular wheat flour.  The flavor is nutty and somewhat sweet.

The second most important ingredient is the brazil nut milk.  By the way this is an excellent chance to try out the brazil nut milk recipe I posted last week.:)  Brazil nut milk provides a buttery, creamy taste.  I tend to gravitate towards brazil nut milk for this recipe for those reasons.  However if you don’t want to make your nut milk or you don’t have time any all natural non-dairy milk can be used.  The next non dairy milk I would probably use would be oat milk followed by almond milk.

*As a side note I’ve never made this recipe using store bought nut milk before so if you do, please comment below and let me know how it turns out.

The other costar ingredients are:

  • local honey
  • baking soda
  • sea salt
  • and that’s it!

Here's an easy biscuit recipe for when there's only a few people, a few ingredients and a few minutes of time. They're not as flaky due to the lack of butter but they are soft, slight chewy and have wonderful flavor!

Prep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins

 1 ½ cups einkorn flour
 ½ tsp baking soda
 ½ tsp sea salt
 2 tsp raw honey
 ½ cup brazil nut milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1

In a large bowl place inside the flour, baking soda and sea salt. Whisk all together. And make a small well in the middle of the flour mixture by pushing the flour up the sides of the bowl.

2

In a liquid measuring cup measure out 1/2 cup of brazil nut milk. Pour the milk in the middle of the well and add the honey.

Mix just till the dough comes together.

3

The dough will be slightly sticky. Turned the dough onto a lightly floured surface, sprinkle flour on top of the dough and gently pat the dough into a circle that's 3/4 inches thick.

4

5

With a 3 inch round cutter or with the 3 inch opening of a glass jar cut out circles of dough by pushing down on the dough then twisting slightly and pulling up. Place each biscuit on a parchment lined baking sheet.

6

Take a little bit of the brazil nut milk and lightly brush some on each cut out biscuit.

7

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or till slightly golden brown.

These biscuits are wonderful right out of the oven and best served as soon as they're baked. However after cooled they can be stored for up to three days in an airtight container. When ready to eat just warm them up for about 5 minutes using a oven or toaster oven.
