The Best Healthy Biscuits

I grew up with drop biscuits or white bread and homemade gravy at every meal. Seriously, I would tear a slice of white bread into small pieces and pour sausage gravy over it and I loved it! Now that I know better, I eat better and I love healthy food just as much. Really, don’t we love the memories of food more than the food itself?

When my mom would make drop biscuits it was always from a box. You probably know the one and it rhymes with “iffy”, actually the ingredients in it are a little iffy – hydrogenated lard, BHT, + more (Find out why those ingredients are toxic). A serving contains 5 grams of fat, 2 grams are saturated fat and 450 mg of sodium and that is before adding the milk to make the biscuits.

One night my husband and I were having lentil loaf and mashed potatoes, a very comforting meal and I became nostalgic for biscuits. Since I don’t have “iffy” ingredients in the house, I created this drop biscuit. It’s so easy and so much healthier than the box mix!

My Best Healthy Biscuits are only 117 calories and have less sodium. They, too, have 5 grams of fat, but nearly 1.5 grams of it is mono/poly unsaturated fat (the good stuff).

I was really impressed with the fluffiness of them considering they are vegan, a.k.a. cholesterol free. I know you will love them as much as I do. They have craggy  nooks and crannies to hold vegan butter or fresh berry jam, mmmmm, so good.
