Most healthy eating plans will tell you that typical Southern biscuits and gravy are a no-no. Lucky for you, this Vintage Biscuits and Gravy recipe will show you how to make a comfort food classic better for you. Serve this Southern food delight for breakfast or as a side dish.


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 pound turkey sausage
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


To make the biscuits:

  1. First sift together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. Rub the solid coconut oil into this dry mixture.
  2. Then, add the milk and lightly mix until everything is thoroughly combined. Do not knead. Roll out  to 1 to 2 inches thick, cut into biscuits.
