I love to use just a few drops of honey on my favorite buttermilk biscuit healthy recipe. These fluffy biscuits are only about 80 calories (without the honey) and by using low-fat buttermilk and low-fat, plain yogurt, we have added calcium, very little fat, and approximately 1 mg of cholesterol.
The big secret about these normally fluffy biscuits is: Do not over mix the batter!!
I recommend these healthy buttermilk biscuits for any meal, for a snack or to have for tea, or even for brunch.
