Blueberry Oatmeal Drop Biscuits Recipe

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly oil a large baking sheet.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the flours, oats, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the butter and cut it in with a pastry blender until it is broken into very small pieces. Stir in the sugar.

Step 3

In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg, milk, and yogurt together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; pour in the liquid ingredients and stir lightly. When there are only a few traces of the dry ingredients visible, fold in the blueberries.

Step 4

Using about 1/4 cup of the batter for each biscuit, drop evenly spaced mounds onto the prepared baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake for 20 minutes, turning the baking sheet midway through so they brown evenly. Serve warm.

These biscuits look and taste like oversize blueberry oatmeal cookies.

Makes 12 biscuits.
