I’m always drawn to recipes with only a few ingredients. I recently found a recipe for biscuits with only three ingredients. Super super easy.
I was a little wary. Yogurt, flour and salt. Could it work?
While making the dough, I was still skeptical. And when they baked up, they looked a little sad.
But then I tasted them. And I was sold. These aren’t your classic flaky buttery biscuits, but they are nevertheless biscuits and they are tasty. The yogurt adds a tang to them. They are chewy, fluffy but also firm, and remind me of an English muffin. I couldn’t stop eating them. And I can’t believe how ridiculously easy they are to make.
Just mix ingredients, roll out, cut, and bake.
Circle B Kitchen indicates that the key to making these biscuits tasty fluffy and not like hockey pucks to is to make sure the dough is about 1 inch or more thick, whereas the original recipe calls for the dough to be only 1/2 inch thick. This seems like a good tip because the biscuits don’t rise that much when baking.
I’ll definitely be making these again. They were so easy and quick. I might wipe the flour away next time because the flour from my pastry board didn’t disappear when these baked up. I think next time I’ll brush the tops with some honey or something before baking for a more glossy finish.

Three Ingredient Yogurt Biscuits
- 3 cups self-rising flour see note
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 ½ cups plain fat free greek yogurt
- Preheat oven to 450°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Whisk the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour the yogurt into the center, and using a wooden spoon, mix the flour into the yogurt until dough forms. It may help to use your hands as well because the dough will be very very sticky.
- Sprinkle your work surface with a little flour, turn the dough out, sprinkle with a little flour and roll out dough to about 1 to 1 1/2-inches thick.
- Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter and cut out as many biscuits as you can from the dough. Re-roll the dough and cut out more biscuits. Repeat this until you have used all of the dough.
- Place the biscuits close together in the prepared pans. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve while warm.
- If you don't have self-rising flour, sift 3 cups all-purpose flour with four teaspoons baking powder and one teaspoon of salt.
- Recipe very slightly adapted from Circle B Kitchen, originally from Relish magazine
