2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 1/4 cups reduced-fat (2-percent) milk

3 tablespoons honey, plus more for serving

1 large egg white


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and work into the flour using your fingers or a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. 
  3. Whisk together the milk, honey and egg white in a small bowl. Add to the dry mixture and stir with a fork until just incorporated. 
  4. Drop 12 mounds onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each biscuit. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet. 
  5. Serve warm with honey on the side.
