Whole Grain Quick Biscuits and/or Muffins

So this is a recipe that our good friends make us quite often when we are visiting. It's been an instant favorite for my kids and I finally asked for the recipe. We have made it many times since and from the get go we doubled it. I call them Biscuits/Muffins because they are kind of on the sweet side although they sort of taste like a biscuit. You could use less sweetener if you want a more biscuit like flavor. Also instead of rolling out the dough and cutting it into biscuit shapes you just spoon it into a greased muffin pan. I love how quick and easy it is.

We have made this recipe when I need my meal to stretch and fill bellies. Or for a quick breakfast of biscuits and gravy. Or if we are out of bread and need some quick! Very versatile you could even add some berries, apples, dried fruit, or something like that to have it be more of a muffin. Even spices like cinnamon and things would work good for more of a muffin flavor.

I have also tried using all Spelt flour when making these and they still where very good although maybe a little more crumbly. I think it would be fun to try other flours maybe even a mix of a few different whole grain flours. Mostly I just love how it is just a few ingredients and mixes together so quick and simply.

Whole Grain Biscuits/Muffins
4 cups whole grain flour, we have used Spelt and hard white wheat
2/3 cup Sucanat
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Real Salt
6 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
3/4 cup milk (I use almond or rice milk)

Add all ingredients into bowl and mix well. Scoop into greased muffin tin bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick in the center comes out clean.
