Apple Drop Biscuits

Source: Clean Eating Magazine  January/February 2010

These biscuits were easy to make and very yummy. My daughter loves them, we use them for snacks. They freeze well.

My changes/substitutes are included below.

From Clean Eating,

This egg-free recipe lends itself well to those wishing to experiment with other flavors: Substitute carrots or pears in place of the apples for a different twist each time you bake up a batch of these biscuits.

1 cup spelt flour *
3/4 cup oat or millet flour**
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp raw organic honey (I used reg. honey)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt or nonfat Greek-style yogurt
1 cup apples, unpeeled, shredded with grater (about 2 small ones)
Olive oil cooking spray

*1 c whole wheat flour = 1 c spelt flour
**If oat flour cannot be found, grind whole oats in a food processor (I did)

Preheat oven to 400F. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

In a small bowl, whisk together honey, oil, yogurt, and apples.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and combine. Do not over-mix.

Mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheet, 1 inch apart. Sprinkle Sweetened Oat Topping (below) on each biscuit, if desired. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden.

Sweetened Oat Topping

1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp organic evaporated cane juice or Sucanat

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients until combined.
