Sprouted Flour Buttermilk Biscuits

sprouted flour buttermilk biscuits Annie Dru recipe food preparation digestible baking powder aluminum-free

By Annie Dru, CCE

This recipe utilizes not one, but two methods for neutralizing anti-nutrients in the grain, thereby rendering the biscuits much more digestible and less likely to cause mineral loss in your family’s precious bones and teeth. I purchase my flour online from To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company www.healthyflour.com/


  • 2⅓ cups sprouted spelt flour, sifted well to remove the bran (which may equal as much as ⅓ cup)
  • ¾ cup organic buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon non-aluminum baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan salt
  • 6 tablespoons very cold butter or lard cut into small pieces


Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut chilled butter or lard into flour mixture until well incorporated. Add buttermilk and mix gently until thoroughly combined. Turn onto a floured surface and pat down until the dough is ½ inch in thickness. Cut into rounds (an upended glass or small canning jar works well) and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet with the biscuits barely touching each other.  Bake at 450° F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Take care not to overbake.
