  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in bowl. Cut in butter with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in buttermilk until just moistened.
  3. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface; knead gently 8 to 10 times. Roll to about 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until biscuits are lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes.

I made these with all whole wheat flour due to a friend's white flour sensitivity. They were a little flat but I think that is due to the flour change I made. Recipe worked well for me in a kitchen I wasn't familiar with. Great flavor!



These were great! I used 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup white whole wheat flour and they turned out fluffy and delicious. Thanks for the recipe.



Definitely fluffy and tasty! The whole batch was gone in an hour. At first I was a little worried when I dumped the dough out to knead it and it was super liquidy....then I realized I forgot the other cup of flour. :/ Whoops. Once I added it in, they turned out great! Ha! Oh, and instead of buying buttermilk, I used the ol' tried and true 1 cup milk, 1 tbsp. white vinegar. Let it set 5 min, and it's ready to go!
