Ingredients

1 cup  whole wheat flour
1 cup  Flour, white, unbleached, enriched
1 tbsp  low sodium baking powder
1 tsp  salt
0 1/4 cup  Milk, nonfat/skim, dry
1 tsp  Yeast, baker's, dry active
0.3333 cup  canola oil
1 tbsp  honey
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder and salt in a sifter or wire-meshed sieve. Sift together.
  2. In a small bowl, add milk or soymilk. Sprinkle yeast over surface. Whisk to mix and dissolve. Dip tablespoon into oil. Measure honey into tablespoon. Add to yeast-milk mixture along with oil. Whisk to mix and dissolve honey.
  3. Add wet mixture to flour mixture. Stir with a fork or fold with a rubber spatula until just mixed and dough holds together.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured board. Roll out 1/2-inch thick. Cut biscuits straight down with a 2-inch cutter. Gather up dough scraps, reroll and cut, handling dough as little and lightly as possible.
  5. Bake 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet until biscuits have risen and are golden brown on top, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve hot.
