Why We Love Baking Honey Biscuits

Honey whole wheat drop biscuits are especially great because they're naturally sweet — thanks to the raw & unfiltered honey inside — but not too sweet to make homemade biscuits and gravy.

Before we keep going, if you're really in a rush: go ahead and preheat that oven to 375º. 

Since no one likes doing dishes after breakfast, we made sure this is a "one bowl" recipe. Just throw everything together and voila! You're less than 20 minutes away from warm, fresh-baked, homemade biscuits.

You're going to love baking with honey, especially a unique raw & unfiltered honey like Local Hive Washington Honey Blend. For more tips on making homebaked recipes with honey, check out our blog: "How to Bake with Honey Instead of Sugar."

3. Add in the cubed cold butter and combine it with the dry ingredients using a pastry blender or your fingers until the flour turns into coarse crumbs.
