Prep Time: 30 minutes Wait Time: 15 minutes Bake Time: 25 minutes Yields: approximately 40-50 biscuits (depending on size and shape)
2 2/3 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups bread flour
¼ cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup flaxseeds
1 cup vegetable oil
½ cup powdered dry milk
1 cup warm chicken or beef broth
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line sheet pans with a splat mat or parchment paper.
Combine wheat flour, bread flour, wheat germ, salt, brown sugar, and flaxseeds in a large mixing bowl. Stir in vegetable oil. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Dissolve dry milk in warm broth. Stir broth/dry milk mixture into flour mixture. Mix to form a very firm dough that is smooth and workable. Adjust by adding a little extra flour or broth, if needed.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and set aside to rest for 15-20 minutes.
After resting, roll the dough out to ¼ to ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits using a bone or desired shape cutter. Place the biscuits on prepared sheet pans.
Bake at 325°F for 25-30 minutes or until biscuits are brown and hard. Let biscuits cool, then store in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks.
