My Breakfast Biscuit Bites

24 Apr

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).
