Herb Baking Powder Biscuits

Biscuits are traditionally made with a solid fat like butter but they’re even better with canola oil! Replace solid fats with canola oil and you’ll cut total fats as well as trans and saturated fats.

Herb Baking Powder Biscuits


  • 2 cups all purpose flour 500 mL
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder 15 mL
  • 1 tsp salt 5 mL
  • 1 Tbsp Italian herb blend 15 mL
  • 1/2 cup canola oil 125 mL
  • 2/3 cup low-fat milk 150 mL


  • 1. Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).
  • 2. In medium size bowl, sift dry ingredients. Make well in flour mixture, and add canola oil and milk. Mix with fork until mixture cleans bowl and forms one mass.
