Jason's Whole Wheat "Bro"scuits

My husband, Jason, is the bread man. He loves fresh bread more than just about any other food, and he loves experimenting with bread recipes.

Here he is modeling some French "bro"guettes he made last week...

 They're shaped weird because our oven is small, but trust me they were awesome!

Jason's "Bro"scuits are super easy and crazy-tasty. The current recipe is still being partially made with white flour, but when we run out of the white stuff he's going to start experimenting with healthier, whole grain alternatives. When he finds a winner, I'll post the "Bro"scuit Redux recipe for you.

1 C whole wheat flour
1 1/4C unbleached all-purpose flour
1 T + 1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp fine sea salt
2 tsp agave (or preferred sweetener)
5 T sunflower oil (or preferred oil)
3/4 C + 3 T soy milk (oat milk works too)
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Whisk together flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour agave, oil and milk into the well, then whisk into a mealy dough.
  • Knead dough gently in the bowl for one minute.
  • Dust a flat surface with flour and hand-press (or roll) dough to about 1.5-inch thickness.
  • Use a biscuit cutter or glass top to cut out your biscuits.
  • Roll remaining dough into a ball (do not re-knead) and re-press and cut more biscuits. Continue until all dough is used.
  • Oil and flour a medium cookie sheet (or mist with baking spray) and place biscuits on it.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until they turn golden brown and scrumptious. 
  • Enjoy fresh from the oven with vegan butter, agave and cinnamon or fruit-sweetened jam. Makes a great complement to my Tasty Tofu Scramble too. Yum!!
