Chocolate Chip Breakfast Biscuits

We like a lot of variety in our breakfast routine. It's so easy to just stick with the oatmeal or pancake stand-bys, but I try to rotate things as much as possible. At the very least, I make sure we do not eat the same thing two days in a row.

This morning, I needed a breakfast that would come together quickly but still be a treat for my husband's birthday. Then I remembered - chocolate chip breakfast biscuits! I've made these quite a few times in the past and they are always a HUGE hit. For whatever reason though, they've been forgotten about until today. They are so good that I doubt I'll be making that mistake again!
Chocolate Chip Breakfast Biscuits
  • 3 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. baking powder
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1-2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1/2-1 c. milk
1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Stir in chocolate chips.

2. Add the milk, a little at a time, just until dough comes together. If you accidentally add too much milk and the dough becomes sticky, just add a little more flour.

3. Roll out dough and cut, or just drop 1/4 c. portions onto a baking sheet. (That's what I did.) Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until fully cooked and lightly browned on top.

Hi, Kate,

I enjoy your blog!

How many biscuits (more or less) do you get from this recipe? And, if you choose to roll them, about how thick? I'm not normally a biscuit maker, but these sound great. School's cancelled tomorrow and I thought these would make a fun "snow day" breakfast.

Thanks!

Hi Sarah. For drop biscuits, I probably got 18. I would roll the dough probably about an inch and a half thick. You might have to cook them a little longer though.

Thanks! So glad you enjoy my blog.

I just printed out a copy. I am planning to make them in the morning before my son's basketball game. Thanks for a great idea!

Cassandra @ Tripping Around The Sun said...

do you still include the baking powder and soda if using self rising (or another way of asking is do you use all purpose flour?)

I wanted to let you know....I was rather inspired by your blog and made myself a menu plan. I picked up all my groceries this past weekend and we're are loving all the recipes we've tried thus far. This morning I made this recipe and even my daughter who doesn't care for milk chocolate loved them! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful journey!
