Drop Biscuits - Fix Approved - Only 4 Ingredients

This super simple, four-ingredient recipe is a great way to indulge in a lighter version of traditional biscuits. Rather than relying on heaps of butter, Greek yogurt keeps these drop biscuits light in both calories and texture. Yogurt is a genius substitute that not only cuts down on the fat; but it also helps replicate the familiar tang of buttermilk biscuits. Make sure to use whole milk Greek yogurt for the best results, as a little bit of fat is needed for flaky biscuits.To take your drop biscuits completely over the top, you can fold in fresh herbs or cheese for a bit of extra flavor. Green onion and cheddar cheese a personal favorite of mine, but I encourage you to get creative!


  • Add ¼ cup of your favorite chopped fresh herbs (like basil, parsley, cilantro, or oregano) when adding the yogurt.

  • Add ¼ cup chopped green onions when adding the yogurt.

  • Add 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary or thyme when adding the yogurt.

  • Add ½ cup shredded cheese when adding the yogurt. Make sure you add 1 tsp. when calculating your container equivalents.

  • Add ½ cup crumbled feta, blue or goat cheese when adding yogurt. Make sure you add ½ tsp. when calculating your container equivalents.

What you need:

  • Parchment paper

  • 1½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 2¼ tsp. baking powder

  • ¼ tsp. + 1 dash sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

  • 1½ cups whole milk plain Greek yogurt

What you do:

  • Preheat oven to 400º F.

  • Line large sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; mix well.
