Whole Wheat Veggie Biscuits

Add broccoli and carrots into kid-friendly biscuits for a picky-eater win!

Whole Wheat Veggie Biscuits

Last week I was busy pureeing broccoli and carrots for Broccoli Orzo when I noticed how pretty the vegetables looked all crumbled together. I started wondering how else I could use this gorgeous blend of veggies, and I decided to try incorporating them into the buttery biscuits my kids love to eat. Guess what? Whole Wheat Veggie Biscuits became a hit!

We want to share this recipe with you because it’s a great one to try with your picky eaters. The veggies are finely-chopped and baked into kid-pleasing biscuits.

Notice how I didn’t call them “hidden” veggies? We are always honest and up-front with our kids about the ingredients that go into their food. And we advocate this approach to all parents!

Not only does this help you gain trust with your kids, it also opens the door to greater food acceptance later on. If your kids decide they love these Whole Wheat Veggie Biscuits, they might be more willing to try broccoli soup next week. And that benefits everybody!

Turning these biscuits into a veggie bonanza was so simple. All I did was incorporate a cup of processed and chopped carrots and broccoli into a simple whole wheat biscuit recipe.

Your family will love the familiar, warm biscuits flavored with tiny veggies (flavor-wise, think veggie crackers or veggie cream cheese. Yum!)

Follow the steps below to whip up a batch of Whole Wheat Veggie Biscuits tonight!

First, peel and roughly chop one carrot and two cups of broccoli.

Then place the veggies into a food processor, and let it run until the veggies are super finely chopped.

Next, wipe out your food processor, and add all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the flour and veggies.

I made these today and they were really yummy! I used a homemade biscuit mix that is half whole wheat. Even my 3 year old who claims that she does not like vegetables said she liked them and asked for another. How much of the puree did you use? I think I put about 3/4 of a cup in (with about 3 cups of biscuit mix), and I could taste it, but I didn’t think it was overly strong.

Oh yeah, I also added about half a cup of shredded cheese to the mix. I forgot about the parmesan on top though.

Hey Amy i am so amazed that this could work out to something soo delicious i tried the recipe and though mine not soo perfect my family loved it. In another note, i would love to do this as a part-time job and probably make a living.. please advise on preservatives since i plan to sell them in our local supermarkets and grocery shops, also how well can i package the biscuits without probably getting hardened or going bad. Thank you once again

That’s a tricky one! Honestly, that rich buttery flavor would be missing without the milk/yogurt/butter. But you could try soy milk and a nondairy yogurt of some kind.

With the bake time you use, do these come out soft or crunchy? Mine are soft in the middle, and i wouldnt really call them biscuits! So I suspect I’ve not got it right… They’re more like patties…
