Prep Time 50 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 1 small head of garlic top cut off
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/4 cups cold butter cubed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups buttermilk


  • Place garlic in a small baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Cover with foil and bake at 400F 35-40 minutes, or until garlic is soft. Cool slightly then finely chop. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter, or your fingers, work in cold butter, shredded cheese, and chopped roasted garlic until crumbly. Pour buttermilk over all and gently stir until a shaggy clump of dough forms.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and gently knead until dough is smooth. Pat dough into a 3/4 in circle. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuit shapes and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  • Bake biscuits at 400F 15-18 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool on wire cooling racks.
