    This may be a silly question, but would plain ‘ol unsweetened original Almond Milk work?

    • LaaLoosh

      I haven’t ever tried it with that substitution, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. The texture may be a tad bit different, but I think the taste would be pretty similar.

  2. Ut oh, I accidentally bought reduced fat butter milk… Any tips on figuring out the points? So excited to try these tonight.

    • LaaLoosh

      It most likely will not increase the Points + value at all. At the most, it will increase by 1. Just add the additional fat grams into the amount listed in the recipe’s nutritional data, and then enter it into your Weight Watchers Points Plus calculator.

  3. I realize this is an old post, but I am happy to have found it! It sounds like a drop biscuit, more or less (no rolling and cutting), but the photo looks rolled and cut. Do the tops really smooth out that much just baking in the tins? Thanks!

  4. What about fat free miracle whip? I know it's a stretch – but that's all I got :)

    • That should work. Give it a shot and let us know how it turns out!

  5. could u use fat free half n half instead of the buttermilk or skim milk?

    • You definitely can! But the buttermilk just adds such a nice flavor to the biscuit.

  6. These were fantastic! They taste just like the full fat variety and they were super easy to make. My whole family gobbled these up so fast I had to hide one so I could have a snack later!
