Autumn Cinnamon Apple Biscuits
These biscuits bring the taste of apples to a perfect breakfast biscuit. Made with whole wheat and just a touch sweetness and cut out in maple leaves it bring fall right to your table. If you'd like them a little sweeter make an icing with some powdered sugar and a few drops of maple extract.
- 2 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or mix of all purpose and whole wheat pastry flour)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon allspice
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 2 medium apples peeled and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened nondairy milk
- 1/2 cup plain coconut or soy yogurt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and oil 2 baking sheets.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and allspice in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
Cut in the coconut oil with a pastry blender or with 2 forks until the mixture resembles a course cornmeal.
Stir in the apples, milk and yogurt just until combined. Pour out the mixture onto floured cutting board patting the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness.
Using a round biscuit cutter or seasonal cookies cutter, cut out the biscuits and place on greased baking sheet.
Reform your dough and pat down again to 1/2 inch and cut out more biscuits. Repeat until all the dough is used.
Cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until bottoms are browned and the middle of the biscuit is firm.
