Hi Sweet Friends,

Today I thought I would try my hand at making biscuits using Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.  In my search to make more nutritious biscuits, I’ve tried using whole wheat flour, spelt flour, and sprouted spelt flour.  Whole wheat produced a dense biscuit.  Spelt came out a bit lighter.  And sprouted spelt was a slight improvement over its non-sprouted counterpart.  But none could compare to good ol’ white flour.

So did Whole Wheat Pastry Flour make a considerable improvement?  Check out my video to find out! 😉

How to Make Whole Wheat Biscuits (VIDEO)

No ratings yet
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes
Total: 27 minutes
Yield: 10 biscuits
Whole Wheat Pastry Flour does create a light and tender biscuit, but there is only a small amount of rise in the dough. I would suggest to improve over the original recipe, make these as drop biscuits instead of rolled and cut biscuits.


  • 2 cups Whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons Cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • cups Cream


  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit or 232 degrees Celsius.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together and add the cream. If dough appears dry, add a small amount of additional cream.
  • Roll dough out on a floured board into a rectangle approximately 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut dough with a sharp knife into 10 equal pieces.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Place baking sheet on middle rack of oven.
  • Bake biscuits for 10-12 minutes until golden in color.


Store leftover biscuits in an airtight container or wrapped well. Reheat in the oven wrapped in foil until heated through.
Preheat your oven. This ensures your biscuits cook up right away evenly and in the proper amount of time.
Bake on parchment paper for easy cleanup and to make sure your biscuits don't stick.
