The Healthy biscuits, created by a team of chefs and nutritionists at New York’s renowned James Beard Foundation, offer healthier alternatives to regular biscuits.
In addition to the healthy biscuit, the biscuit is also made with soy protein and whole grains, a diet that’s been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
“I love the way it feels in the hand, and I think it’s one of the best biscuits I’ve ever made,” said co-founder John Vignocchi, whose restaurant is in the former home of legendary chef Samuel Adams.
Biscuits are made with whole wheat flour, barley, corn, rye and oats, but the dough is also supplemented with whole-grain flour, cornmeal, rye flour, whole-wheat sugar and coconut oil.
The team of 30 cooks, plus one pastry chef, also uses real ingredients, such as sugar and salt.
The recipe, which was featured in a New York Times feature this week, is made from the ingredients from three different kinds of biscuit dough.
The biscuits are also made in house, with the dough made from scratch and then baked on a cast iron skillet, according to the James Beard website.
The biscuits are available in two flavors: the savory biscuit ($1.99), which is a white, slightly sweet biscuit made with the same ingredients as the healthy biscuits, and a savory, chocolate-coated biscuit with sweet peanut butter flavor ($3.99).
The Healthy BISCUITS website states that the chocolate-covered biscuit has 40 grams of protein, 25 grams of fat and 2 grams of saturated fat.
The savory one has 40 calories, 12 grams of carbohydrate and 13 grams of fiber.
The sweet one has 38 calories, 10 grams of carbs, 8 grams of sodium and 10 grams the protein.
