2 Ingredient Biscuits

It’s no secret that I love recipes with very few ingredients. My current favorites that need just 2 ingredients are peanut butter cookies, keto crackers, and these two ingredient biscuits. 

I’m the kind of person who rarely has cravings but I do, it’s always for something bread-based. While I do love candy and salty snacks, give me a roll or slice of fresh bread any day and I’m a happy man. While I do keep a loaf of bread in my fridge for toast or sandwiches, it’s the ‘fresh from the oven’ kind of bread that needs to be made when the cravings strike!

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the magic two ingredient dough. I’ve used it to make tons of sweet and savory treats and my recent obsession has been to use it to make a 2 ingredient biscuit recipe. These biscuits require no yeast and no butter, but you’d never tell. The texture is soft and fluffy on the inside, and golden brown on the outside. I added cheese to them, making them deliciously cheesy, but you can leave them plain or jazz them up!

Now, don’t get confused with the whole biscuits VS cookies debacle. These are similar to British/Australian scones, not their equivalent to a cookie!

How do you make two ingredient biscuits?

The Ingredients

  • Self rising flour– If you don’t have self rising flour on hand, easily make your own
  • Greek yogurt– Non-fat or low-fat Greek yogurt. 
  • Shredded cheese– Optional, but I love a good savory biscuit (my favorite recipe is cheese drop biscuits). Standard cheese or dairy free cheese both work. 

The Instructions

Start by adding the self rising flour and yogurt into a mixing bowl and mixing together until combined and smooth dough remains. If adding cheese, gently mix it through at the end. 

Next, gently flour a kitchen surface and transfer your dough onto it. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and place them onto a lined baking sheet. Place the biscuits in a preheated oven and bake at 180C/350F for 15-17 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and the edges are beginning to brown. Remove the biscuits from the oven and serve immediately, or let them cool to room temperature.

Flavor and dietary variations

  • Make them vegan– Switch out the Greek yogurt for plant based yogurt, such as unsweetened coconut yogurt or soy yogurt. Try to use a brand that is naturally thicker, to form a smooth dough. 
  • Make them gluten free. Use gluten free self rising flour, like the Doves Farm brand. I haven’t tried this with a homemade flour blend, so cannot vouch for those results. 
  • Sweet biscuits– Use vanilla Greek yogurt and add 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup or sugar free maple syrup
  • Dairy free biscuits– Use a thick non-dairy yogurt, with no added sugar. 

Tips to make the best self rising flour drop biscuits

  • If you use a non-dairy yogurt, be sure it is thick and not watery. The thinner the yogurt is, the more flour you will need to add. 
  • If your dough is too thin (wet), add more flour. If the dough is too thick, add a few extra tablespoons of yogurt. 
  • For a delicious snack, serve warm biscuits with jam, almond butter, or healthy Nutella

Storing and freezing tips

  • To store: Biscuits can keep at room temperature, covered, for up to 3 days. If you’d like them to keep longer, store them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze: Place leftover biscuits on a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months. 
  • Reheating: To enjoy biscuits warm, microwave for 30 seconds or reheat in a preheated oven at 180C/350F for 6-7 minutes.
