Savory Granola Cheddar Biscuits

Savory Granola Cheddar Biscuits

Close your eyes and think about everything you love about warm cheddar biscuits: The flaky layers, the buttery soft dough, and the sharp, cheesy bite. Now add our lightly sweet, almond-filled Original Granola to the recipe, and you've got something really special.

Makes 6 Biscuits

2 cups flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp garlic powder

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, cold

¾ cup buttermilk, plus more for brushing

1 ½ cups sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup Michele’s Original Granola

¼ cup finely chopped chives


  • Preheat the oven to 425F.
  • In a large bowl combine and whisk all dry ingredients together.
  • Using the large holes of a box grater, grate butter into dry ingredients.
  • Then using your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles small pebbles.
  • Add buttermilk, granola, cheese, and chives. Using a rubber spatula, stir together until just mixed.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and spill dough out, kneading and gathering just until cohesive.
  • Roll out dough until it’s about ¾ inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or sharp knife, shape biscuits and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Brush the tops with buttermilk. Bake 8-10 min or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm with your favorite savory or sweet biscuit toppings.
