How to Make BONNIE'S YEAST BISCUITS (HEALTHIER)

Step-by-Step

  1. YEAST:
    Mix the yeast and 2 tablespoons of very warm water, stir. Set aside.
  2. BUTTERMILK:
    Mix the buttermilk powder and 2 cups of water, whisk, Set aside.
  3. MIX THE BISCUITS:
    In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and cut in the coconut oil. Good luck with that. Never could do it! I always do mine with my fingers!
    Add the buttermilk and yeast and just stir until moistened. Overmixing makes tough biscuits. So just stir until dough is intact, then dump out onto the bread board. Dust with a little flour and knead for a couple of minutes only. Roll out 1/2 inch thick and cut with a 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Place on parchment paper on cookie sheet. Brush melted butter on the tops prior to baking. This recipe makes 16 large biscuits.
  4. BAKE THE BISCUITS:
    Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes until lightly browned, depending on your oven and altitude.
  5. STORING THE DOUGH:
    You may store the dough in the refrigerator for several days if it is covered. Be sure to let the dough sit at least one hour and come to room temperature before baking. Enjoy!
