I normally don’t eat breakfast, but when I was working at the tax office, I got hooked on these Nabisco Belvita Bites.
They were great with a cup of coffee and I could nibble on them throughout the morning. The only down side is that they’re kinda expensive and there’s only 5 pouches in a box. Besides this mixed berry, there’s also chocolate ones with tiny chocolate pieces…Mmm!
I thought I would try making my own breakfast biscuit bites and came up with these tasty and crispy bites!
Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Biscuits
Rather than just make plain ones, I added some pumpkin spice mix I had in the cupboard. This recipe made over 130 – 1 1/2” biscuits, which will definitely last me awhile! I’m going to try chocolate ones next using half the recipe.
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup dry oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
1/2 cup brown sugar (not packed)
1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
1/4 cup cold milk
Measure the dry ingredients (first 7 ingredients) into a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Drop pieces of the butter into the processor and pulse until combined. With processor running, slowly add the cold milk and mix until a dough starts to form.
Dump mixture onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll the dough out to about 1/8′ thick and cut with cookie cutter or with a knife.
Place on greased cookie sheet, poke with a fork, and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on cookie rack.
Note: My biscuits turned out dark because I used dark brown sugar. For plain biscuits, replace the pumpkin spice with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. You could probably also use 1/4 cup of honey in place of the brown sugar (use less because honey is sweeter then sugar).
