These light and delicious savory whole wheat biscuits are made with about half whole wheat flour.

Green onions and a little parsley make these tasty wheat biscuits extra special. These biscuits are super easy to make; most of the mixing is done in the food processor.

These are wonderful biscuits to enjoy with a hearty stew or top with ham or turkey slices.


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter (chilled)
  • 3 green onions (chopped)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup (plus 1 tablespoon) buttermilk

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 425 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

  2. In a food processor, combine the flours, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar, if using.

  3. Add the butter in small pieces, then the chopped green onions and parsley. Process until mixture resembles a meal.​

  4. Stir in the buttermilk until ingredients are just moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 2 or 3 times, just until you have a soft cohesive dough.

  5. Pat out into a circle about 3/4-inch thick. Cut out with biscuit cutters and arrange on the baking sheet.

  6. Bake for about 11 to 14 minutes, until lightly browned.

  7. Serve with a stew or use them for sandwiches and enjoy!

Recipe Tip

  • If you don't use a food processor, work the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles meal, then add finely chopped green onion and parsley.
