Easy Sweet Drop Biscuits

20140414-234237.jpg This is a refreshingly simple, delicious quick bread recipe. Not only are these buttery little biscuits delectable to the last drop, they're packed with nutrients, thanks to a powerful trio of superfoods.

These easy sweet drop biscuits are my go-to weekend morning "mommy what's for breakfast?" quick treat.

Here's what you'll need:

2 cups flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 3 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup buttermilk (very cold) 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted) 1 tablespoon whole flax seed
1 tablespoon chia seed
2 tablespoons goji berries

Here's what to do:

Preheat your oven to 475 degrees, with rack in the middle.

In a coffee grinder, grind the chia and flax seed down to a coarse powder. Set the mixture aside in a small bowl.

Add the goji berries seeds to the coffee grinder and grind down to a coarse powder. Add your goji berries to the bowl with the chia and flax.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and chia/flax/goji berry mixture.


Add the melted butter to this mix and stir until crumbly.

Add the cold buttermilk and stir until a smooth texture is accomplished.


Prepare an oiled baking sheet. Scoop about a tablespoon of dough onto your sheet for each biscuit. Create enough space for your dough to expand and rise (about an inch all around).

Cook for ten minutes, or until golden brown.


These biscuits pair perfectly with apple or pumpkin butter or your favorite jam.

The recipe makes approx. a dozen.
