I love this recipe because it uses common ingredients you can easily find in your cupboard or local grocery store. And at 87 calories each, these make a great snack or mini breakfast sandwich!
To keep the calories lower, I used nutritional yeast to bump up the cheesy flavor without having to add more cheese. You could probably use more nutritional yeast to get these really nice and cheesy. Heat them up in the oven before eating—you won’t regret it.
Gruyere and Chive Drop Biscuits
Based off I Am Food Blog’s recipe.
Yield: makes 12 small biscuits
Nutrition: 87 calories each
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup gruyere, or your favorite cheese
- 3/4 tsp nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons chives, chopped
- 1/3 cup sour cream, chilled
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened cashew milk, chilled
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, gruyere, nutritional yeast, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pepper, and chives.
Add the sour cream and stir until the mixture becomes the texture of cornmeal. Stir in the cashew milk and fold until combined.
Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, plop your batter onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Keep the biscuits about an inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes, then brush the tops with melted butter, and bake for another 3 minutes.
Slice in half and make mini breakfast sandwiches!
