Sometimes, you just need a biscuit.
Nothing fancy, just a bite of bready goodness to get you started on the right track. Or maybe you just came back from a run and think you need some carbs to replenish your glycogen stores…because you know, 3 miles really wipes you out.
This would be the recipe for you. I made these free-form, which is code for ugly. You could shape them and an egg wash to the top to make them prettier, if you’re into that sort of thing. But that would make them just regular cinnamon sugar biscuits, instead of super fast.
Super Fast Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
Preheat oven to 425.
In a medium mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, dark brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Using either your hands or a pastry cutter, mix well until brown sugar is well incorporated and distributed into the flour mixture.
In a separate bowl, add the milk and egg. Gentle whisk to combine.
Add milk mixture to the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Using a 1/4 measuring cup, measure out 6 biscuits. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Place on rack and cool slightly. Best served warm with butter and jam.
