Introducing whole wheat and coconut flours into the outline of a traditional buttermilk biscuit really transforms the flavor without detracting from the crisp flakey texture of a good biscuit. Coconut flour absorbs moisture much more than other flours, so don’t be tempted to add more than called for or you could end up with dry biscuits!


  1. Whisk 2/3 cup each all-purpose and whole-wheat flour, 1/4 cup coconut flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt. Work in 6 tablespoons diced cold butter. Stir in 3/4 cup buttermilk and knead a few times. Pat until 1/2 inch thick on a floured surface, fold into thirds and pat into a 1-inch-thick rectangle; cut into 8 squares. Brush with buttermilk; sprinkle with salt and hemp hearts. Bake on a baking sheet at 425˚ F, 20 to 25 minutes.
