Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 1 dozen biscuits


  • 2-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 medium jalapeno finely minced
  • Butter and additional honey for serving


  • Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and honey. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or your fingers until butter is in pea-sized clumps. Add buttermilk and minced jalapeno and gently stir until a shaggy ball of dough forms.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly-floured surface and gently knead several times until dough forms a smooth ball. Roll dough out to 1-in thickness and cut out biscuits using a 2-in biscuit cutter. Place biscuits 1-in apart upside-down on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake biscuits at 425F 11-12 minutes until golden brown. Serve biscuits warm with butter and additional honey. Enjoy!
