Yogurt Drop Biscuits

Looking for a low cholesterol/heart healthy recipe for drop biscuits isn’t easy. Most recipes are either shortening or butter (or margarine…yuck!) but I wanted something that would use oil but as well not be a ton of oil. These mixed up quickly, baked in a few minutes and tasted wonderful. They were tender and soft, I will make them again for strawberry shortcake.

Yogurt Drop Biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil


Heat the oven to 400° and spray a non-stick baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a small bowl mix the yogurt and oil together, set aside. In a large bowl whisk the dry ingredients together, drop the yogurt mix on top and quickly stir till the dough comes together (but don’t over stir). Use a 1/4 cup disher or similar and make 12 balls, place on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Makes 12.
