I've been playing with variations on this Healthy Biscuit Recipe for a while now, and finally came up with one that I can enjoy. It's hard to find a way to make this southern classic comfort food healthier, but the addition of nonfat Greek yogurt really seems to do the trick!
Healthy Biscuit Recipe using Greek Yogurt
No biscuit is truly healthy considering the basic carbs, but this is much healthier than other choices. The lack of butter in this recipe helps make it a much better choice that you'll still enjoy but won't feel so guilty about enjoying. I love having these with sugar-free strawberry jam or unsweetened apple butter. Such a great option that makes this healthy biscuit recipe a favorite!
