Whole Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits

Tomorrow is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day! You know I’m a southern girl, so this is like music to my ears!  I’m happy to use any excuse for a good ol’ buttered biscuit.

But wait, don’t flip your lid just yet… I know what you’re thinking.  Buttermilk biscuits are TERRIBLE for your health.  And you have a point.  A biscuit made with white flour has no value to your health.  In fact, white flour can lead to a myriad of health problems!

So, that is why my momma and I have come up with a healthy southern biscuit.  Yep, you heard that right.  My momma, the same wonderful woman who fed me buttermilk biscuits from scratch when I was a little girl, has helped me to change this biscuit into something more healthful: Whole Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits with Coconut Oil.

Why whole wheat? Read my post here. It will give you all you need to know. Why coconut oil? Read my other post here.

    I’ve never used coconut oil, can I substitute a different fat/oil?

      You can. Coconut oil is a healthy fat that I use to replace unhealthy fats like vegetable oil or shortening.

      Vegetable Shortening is the usual here in the south – but it is an unhealthy substitute which is why I opt for coconut oil. BUT, if you are able to find palm kernel shortening or grass fed beef lard, those are also real food, healthy substitutes.
