A Lower Calorie Biscuit  Recipe for Dieters

These cheesy biscuits contain 'real live cheese' yet due to the low fat ingredients in the recipe, they can still be enjoyed while dieting.

The key to keeping out the fat is using reduced baking mix, skim milk and low fat cheese.

On that note, we hope that you enjoy making and eating our Sea Biscuit recipe.

Sea Biscuits, Ingredient List

COMBINE TO FORM SOFT DOUGH - about 30 strokes by hand:

2 Cups of Reduced Fat Buttermilk Baking Mix
2/3 Cup of Skim Milk or low fat milk
1/2 Cup of Grated Skim or Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese

After you have created a soft dough using the above ingredients, spoon the biscuits onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake in preheated 450 oven until they reach a golden brown stage - about 10 minutes.

Remove and brush with the following buttery glaze before serving. We recommend that the biscuits be served while they are still piping hot:

1/4 Cup of Parkay No Calorie Butter Spray*
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

How to Prepare This Biscuit Recipe

If you enjoy dill or rosemary, try adding a bit to the biscuit dough before baking.

*If you do not have butter spray on hand, then reduced fat margarine of any variety will work absolutely fine in this biscuit recipe.

Zero Calorie Butter Sprays Not Zero in Calories

The reason why we recommended the Parkay is because it contains zero calories per recommended spray.

However, take note of that first ingredient on the nutrition label; yes indeed - it is a form of oil. Therefore, when the amount is boosted, the caloric values come into plan.

In addition, unless the Kcal values are at a certain number or percentage in foods, manufacturers are not required by law to list the values.

So do remember that whenever a diet product states 'zero calories', that may only be true based on the recommended serving size.
