I hope you had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and had a chance to whip up a batch of the 100% whole grain pumpkin cupcakes!!
Keeping with the WHOLE GRAIN theme, get ready to bust out your crock pot and whip up some chili or stew to enjoy with theses AWESOME 100% whole grain garlic cheddar biscuits. They are the perfect savory pair to your favorite fall dish.
Whole grains are an excellent choice for quality carbohydrates and not only will they help keep your blood sugar stable, but the fiber helps keep you fuller longer which is great for your waist line. Which makes this biscuits an excellent alternative to the traditional white flour biscuits.
These biscuits take about 5 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to bake and the combination of garlic and cheddar make them the perfect match for your heart bowl of chili or winter soup.
