Old fashioned homemade drop biscuits ready in only 20 minutes! Whole grain and refined sugar free these biscuits couldn’t be easier to make and taste delicious!
This post is brought to you courtesy of the bitter cold front hitting the country this week.
Here in South Texas, we get pretty excited about words like “Arctic Blast.” We overbundle, we light a fire, we rush to the store for soup ingredients, and we stalk the weather forecast in hopes of snow.
We usually have to settle for icy rain instead of snow (it only snows once every few years in my area), but even that will sometimes score us some school and business closures – not because we can’t get out of our driveways, but because we don’t know how to behave ourselves once we’re out on the roads!
It’s pretty funny, really.
So, like any good Texan, I intend to spend the next few days bundled up, watching the weather obsessively, and eating plenty of soup…and biscuits.

Old Fashioned Drop Biscuits in Around 20 Minutes!
These delicious, whole wheat drop biscuits take only a few minutes to mix up, and about 15 to bake.
The simple goodness of old fashioned on today’s busy timeline?
Plus, they’re made with whole wheat flour and are refined sugar free.
Homemade Biscuits Any Time of Day!
Traditionally, biscuits are breakfast food. And these are so perfect for sopping up that last bit of gravy or fried egg yolk.
But they’re also great with soup!
And then there’s my personal favorite – dessert!
I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious they are with a little melted butter and a drizzle of honey!
Tips For Making Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits
- Make sure you line a baking sheet with parchment paper so the biscuits don’t stick
- Make sure the butter is cold from the fridge and work fast so it doesn’t melt
- For neater looking biscuits gently mold them into a rounded shape with your hands and smooth out any rough edges
- Let the biscuits cool completely before storing in air tight container

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter, until the mixture resembles powdery crumbs
- Whisk milk and honey together as best you can, then add to the bowl.
- Mix all using pastry cutter or clean hands until incorporated. (Parts of the mixture will appear a little dry and crumbly, while other parts are buttery - that's fine).
- Scoop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet (about 1/4 cup of dough per scoop.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until surface is lightly browned.
Oh yum! I cannot believe how easy it is to make these biscuits! I’ll be making several batches!
These biscuits are so delicious! Love that they re made with whole wheat!
These are quite dry and don’t hold together well after baking. Will not make again.
Made these with plain yogurt instead of milk and added some roasted garlic. Threy turned out great with chicken stew! Thank you!!
That’s great – thanks for sharing that!
Hi Dena! I’m looking for a different sweetener to use in this recipe. Any ideas? Looking forward to trying it out!
Hi Erin, You could easily substitute maple syrup for the honey (I might reduce it to 2-2.5 Tbsp?) or organic sugar of any kind (in that case, you may want to increase the milk by a tablespoon or so just to be sure they’re still plenty moist.
I like not having to roll the dough, but the prep time is more than five minutes. I don’t believe a person can measure ingredients, cut in cold butter, mix in the liquid, prep the baking sheet anfd drop the biscuits in five minutes even if you have all the ingredients assembled right beside you when you begin. Sorry if that’s a petty complaint. Just want people to know you can’t get these on the table ready to eat in just 20 minutes. That being said, we really liked them & will make again!
Thanks for making the biscuits, Andy – I’m so glad you enjoyed them!
I always appreciate the feedback and tips I read in the comments section when I’m deciding whether to try a recipe on another blog, so thanks for including your experience with the prep time as a reference point for other readers as well. Cheers!
Dena, I live in the northeast so I am used to the cold and snow. But I agree with you. When it is icy outside, I stay indoors. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll be trying it this weekend.
I hope you enjoy the biscuits, Debbie- stay warm this weekend!
