“I finally perfected my baking powder biscuits recipe to accomodate whole wheat flour and flax seed. It took me awhile as straight substitutions didn't work well and the measurements were weird (5.3333 TBL, etc). I finally got the taste, texture and measurements down (for our tastes at least!) I use 'White-Whole-Wheat-Flour' by King Arthur Flours in the below recipe. I buy Ground Flax Seed from Costco (40 oz jar only $10). I use dry nonfat milk in my baking (cheaper and more convenient). If you don't have any on hand just substitute a little more than 2/3 C of fresh skim milk. My directions are using a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer as that is what I always use when making my biscuits. Obviously you can adapt to your own mixing method. For OAMC-This recipe easily doubles. Form the biscuit dough into the flatten balls and place on a greased cookie sheet and place in the freezer. Once frozen, then place the dough into ziploc bags for freezer storage. You can then throw the frozen biscuits directly into the preheated 450 degree oven. They will take approximately 2-3 minutes longer to bake.”

  2. -Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, nonfat milk powder, and flax seed in the bowl of your mixer.
  3. -Add the butter and mix with the paddle attachment on your mixer. Mix until the butter is a little larger than pea sized pieces.
  4. -Add the water while the mixer is running. Once batter starts clinging to paddle it is done. You can always add a little more water at a time in case it is a dry day.

  6. -Bake for 12 minutes or until just turning golden brown on top.
