A couple of weeks ago, I posted a delicious recipe for Country Fried Steak and Gravy, and said I was going to work on a good, low calorie buttermilk recipe to go along with it. Well, it turns out that I already had one! But just for fun, I decided to alter my own version just a bit, and make it with whole wheat flour and reduced fat buttermilk instead. O M G. They were so good!!
Usually, I find that recipes with whole wheat flour, just never taste quite as good as all purpose flour, but these healthy buttermilk biscuits were a real surprise. Fluffy, moist, and pretty darn big, they ended up still having 3 Points, but the nutritional stats were better. And any way I can sneak something healthy into my family’s meals without sacrificing flavor, you can bet I’m going to do it.
My husband and 2yr old gobbled these down in seconds – they were a definite hit and will be on my menu many times to come.
Now….my next goal is to find out how to make a low calorie Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits Recipe!!
