Greek Yogurt Biscuits

Greek Yogurt Biscuits-fluffy and tender biscuits that are made with Greek yogurt! 

Greek Yogurt Biscuits Recipe on Fluffy and tender biscuits made with Greek Yogurt!

Do you want to know what I loving right now? Biscuits. That’s right, biscuits. Josh made homemade Greek Yogurt Biscuits the other day and I am in love. I can’t stop thinking about them. We’ve made a lot of biscuits in our lifetime and they are all winners, but these Greek Yogurt Biscuits are perfection. Trust me, I know, I ate two of them. I had to make sure they were perfect.

You need to make these biscuits…like right now.


Josh told me he wanted to make biscuits and he looked like he knew what he was doing so I got out of the way. I didn’t go too far though because I wanted to be around when he pulled them out of the oven:)


Josh used Gold Medal All-Purpose Organic Flour. The flour is certified organic, unbleached, enriched and pre-sifted. It is the perfect flour for the perfect biscuit recipe! We love this flour!


Josh used plain Greek yogurt instead of the traditional buttermilk to make the biscuits. We didn’t have any buttermilk, but our fridge was stocked with Greek yogurt, so Josh gave it a try! Best decision ever! The Greek yogurt created a tender and flaky biscuit!


The biscuits puffed up nicely in the oven! Look at that height! I couldn’t wait to tear into a biscuit!


Josh got out the butter and honey and we went to biscuit town!


A hot flaky biscuit, right out of the oven, slathered with butter and drizzled with honey…is there anything better in life? I don’t think so!

Josh and Caleb enjoyed their biscuits with Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup, but I just ate biscuits for dinner. I didn’t need anything else. I was in biscuit heaven!

Greek Yogurt Biscuits-make them happen and make them happen soon! I am requesting them for dinner this week! They go great with any meal…or if you want them to be your meal, I’m ok with that!

And if you are looking for another side dish for your Thanksgiving feast, invite Greek Yogurt Biscuits to your table. You won’t be disappointed!


Greek Yogurt Biscuits

Yield: 8 large biscuits

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12-15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Tender, flaky, and buttery biscuits that are made with a secret ingredient-Greek yogurt! These are our favorite biscuits!


3 cups Gold Medal All-Purpose Organic Flour
1 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3/4 cup cold plain Greek yogurt
1 large egg, beaten
3 tablespoons cold water
1 large egg, beaten, for brushing on biscuits


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter, using your fingers or a pastry cutter. Work the dough until mixture resembles a coarse meal.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, egg, and water. Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture, stirring until dough barely comes together. Dump the mixture on lightly floured counter and knead until the dough comes together. Don't overwork the dough.

4. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut into rounds using a biscuit cutter or cut into 2×2-inch squares. Combine dough scraps and roll out again to make remaining biscuits.

5. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets and brush with the egg wash. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Serve warm with butter, honey, or jam!

    YUM! I actually think these would be awesome crumbled into greek yogurt 😉

  2. Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet — November 13, 2013 @ 5:45 am

    I am so lovin this! I always try to throw some Greek yogurt into anything I make but I stay away from biscuits and buttermilk because my daughter broke out in hives once. This is the perfect alternative!!!

  3. Robin @ Simply Southern Baking — November 13, 2013 @ 6:23 am

    These biscuits look and sound amazing. It’s just about time for breakfast and I’m drooling looking at these light and fluffy biscuits.

  4. Tieghan — November 13, 2013 @ 8:34 am

    Wow, these look perfect! I never even thought of adding greek yogurt to a buttery biscuit! What a great idea! So fluffy!

  5. Bonny @ Clever Hen — November 13, 2013 @ 9:19 am

    These look amazing! My husband loves biscuits. I have got to try them.

  6. Sommer@ASpicyPerspective — November 13, 2013 @ 9:23 am

    They look like perfection. I only wish I was around to try one!

  9. Kevin @ Closet Cooking — November 13, 2013 @ 9:50 am

    These sound really good and I like that butter and honey topping!

  10. Denise — November 13, 2013 @ 9:54 am

    I’m curious if you ever provide nutritional information on your recipes. I’m assuming these would be healthier than the typical biscuit due to the protein in the greek yogurt. Can you estimate carbs/fat/protein? They sound and look wonderful! please and thank you

    Maria! I love this post — amazing, fluffy goodness. Thanks for sharing – these are going to be a hit!

  13. Rachael (Fuji Mama) — November 13, 2013 @ 10:33 am

    I LOVE replacing ingredients with Greek yogurt, and love the idea of replacing the buttermilk in biscuits with it! The biscuits look DELISH.

  14. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie — November 13, 2013 @ 10:41 am

    Greek yogurt is my new favorite thing to mix into dough. I’ve done pizza dough, and bagels so far. Love this idea in biscuits.

  15. HeatherChristo — November 13, 2013 @ 11:03 am

    these look so great. I want a whole basket of them!

  16. Julie @ Table for Two — November 13, 2013 @ 11:08 am

    These look awesome, Maria! I want a whole plateful! I can definitely scarf down these babies!

  17. Paula — November 13, 2013 @ 11:32 am

    My husband loves biscuits and gravy BUT he knows it isn’t very healthy. I’ve taken several steps to reduce the calories by using a chicken gravy. But it’s those darned biscuits that are so full of calories. These are a bit better. I will have to try these and I’m sure my husband won’t mind one bit. :-)

  18. Marian (Sweetopia) — November 13, 2013 @ 11:59 am

    Oh these look to die for! I can’t wait to try these!

  19. Laura (Tutti Dolci) — November 13, 2013 @ 12:34 pm

    These biscuits look impossibly fluffy, love!

  20. Gerry @ Foodness Gracious — November 13, 2013 @ 12:54 pm

    Great to see Gold Medal with an organic line! These biscuits would be great for breakfast stuffed with bacon and a runny egg!

  21. Liz @ Virtually Homemade — November 13, 2013 @ 12:54 pm

    I would just eat the biscuits for dinner too! I mean there’s yogurt in there – right?

  22. Norma | Allspice and Nutmeg — November 13, 2013 @ 12:59 pm

    Greek yogurt, yeah! I love breads made with yogurt. It adds a nice tender crumb to any bread.

  23. Anna@CrunchyCreamySweet — November 13, 2013 @ 1:02 pm

    These biscuits look amazing, Maria! I love baking with Greek yogurt so these go onto my to-bake list!

  24. naomi — November 13, 2013 @ 3:30 pm

    I love that you made these with Greek yogurt!

  25. marla — November 13, 2013 @ 6:12 pm

    Great idea to use the yogurt in these biscuits!

  26. Gia — November 13, 2013 @ 7:07 pm

    Hi Maria! Your greek yogurt biscuits look scrumptious! I am wondering though, should i use fat free, low fat, or full fat plain greek yogurt for this recipe?:)

  27. Sandra ltb — November 13, 2013 @ 8:15 pm

    WOW! look yummy – on the list to make this week!

    LOVE the idea of using greek yogurt instead of buttermilk. I always have greek yogurt in my fridge and never have buttermilk, so I will definitely be making these!

  29. Becky — November 14, 2013 @ 12:27 am

    Love the idea of using Greek yogurt in biscuits!! I will definitely have to try this!

  30. Skye — November 14, 2013 @ 5:23 am

    Heavenly – the perfect treat for breakfast!

  31. Aimee @ Simple Bites — November 14, 2013 @ 9:42 am

    Wow! I doubt biscuits get much better than this. Great recipe, Maria!

  32. Holiday Guy — November 14, 2013 @ 11:52 am

    Love it! These look so so good.

  33. Maria W — November 14, 2013 @ 12:40 pm

    I am definitely trying this with my own freshly-made plain yogurt. There’s a real savings to making your own Greek yogurt, everyone!—I can’t wait to taste the first muffin! Thanks for this recipe.

  34. Row — November 14, 2013 @ 3:16 pm

    Wow, these biscuits are gorgeous, so tall and fluffy! I love the use of yogurt in this recipe… must try it out soon. Thanks! :)

  35. Memoria — November 14, 2013 @ 11:43 pm

    What a crazy coincidence! I just made and published biscuits made with Greek yogurt (and skim milk) on my blog a couple of days ago! I enjoyed my biscuits very much so I am sure yours were delicious as well. What a weird coincidence, though. Great minds think alike…

  36. ATasteOfMadness — November 15, 2013 @ 2:42 am

    I can’t believe I have never made biscuits before!!! These look fantastic!

  37. Jenny Flake — November 15, 2013 @ 5:49 pm

    Love the idea of using yogurt for biscuits! Mmm!!

  40. Simons Michel — November 16, 2013 @ 10:04 pm

    Just made these. Mine came out tasting good but they got a beige color…all over inside and out. Why?

      I have no idea. Our biscuits were golden brown. What brand of yogurt did you use?
