I’ve made the base recipe for these biscuits so many times that I actually keep a copy of the recipe within easy reach in my kitchen. They’re just so simple and so good that they’re a great go-to when you want a quick batch of biscuits with no rolling and cutting involved. You can have them mixed and in the oven in just a few minutes.

I enjoy making them with different add-ins and flavors, from sweet to savory. They’re really wonderfully adaptable! I’ve lost track of all the variations I’ve made, but you can find a blueberry version here at BoB as well as this chocolate chip version.

If you’re ready to join me in the Chocolate for Breakfast Revolution, then you’ll want to be sure to add this recipe to your baking arsenal. What a sweet way to start your day!

  2. Sounds fantastic! I’m a chocoholic friek anyway but this seems easy to make when you are getting guests in an hour.

  3. YES!! Chocolate for breakfast!! Dying to try this biscuit recipe!

  4. These look fantastic! Are they similar to a scone?

  5. Jennifer,

    These look perfect and not tooooo sweet!  I love my protein breakfast every day but I miss all the sweet rolls and pastries my mom made years ago too.   These will be easy to make and healthier instead.. Now I can swap out  my quick bread toast w my eggs with  a chocolate chip biscuit ( or two) instead.!!!

    I think I’ll try raisins or apple cinnamon fruit bites I just found on line too. Biscuits for breakfast is a very good idea!!!!!  Thanks

  6. Oh my gosh! Made these earlier, and just ate one! Absolutely delicious!
    Before baking them I sprinkled coarse sugar on the top.
    They are so tender and moist!

  7. Just made these and omg they are amazing!!! Huge hit with my family!! Thanks for another winner!!
