Southern Comfort

Check out Think Tank Momma for more awesome breakfast recipes!! Or link up and post your own!

and I'm not talking about a drink, of course, nothin' wrong with a drinkipoo or two (or more, depending on the situation).  I'm talkin' good old Southern COMFORT FOOD.  The list is loooonngggg - but right now I'm talking about a biscuit.  You CAN NOT be from the South (capital "S" - show some respect) without having consumed some homemade biscuits.  Maybe with molasses........mmmmmmm.  Or some homemade strawberry preserves.  It's a right of passage.  HOWEVER, unless I want to walk around looking like I have two giant, lumpy bisbuits in the back of my pants, I have to avoid my beloved biscuits.  BUT (I love prepositions) the other day I wanted to make something good, and comforting.  I did not want high fiber cereal.  SO, as I was perusing the internet for a recipe, I came across Chocolate Chip Breakfast Biscuits, found here http://stolenmomentscooking.com/chocolate-chip-breakfast-biscuits/ .  Hold up!!!!  Chocolate and biscuits TOGETHER!!  Who is this genious?  I must make them immediately.  Which I did.  And they were awesome.

This is my little Terror, enjoying some Southern comfort (food).

Of course, in keeping with my quest to eat healthier, I made some modifications to the recipe.  As listed, I'm sure it's even more awesome - but I wanted to cut the fat, yada yada. 
My changes were: used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour;
1/4 c. butter (Smart Balance 50/50) and 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce;
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips (but 1-2 cups would have been orgasmic) and 1/2 c. skim milk. 
Right out of the oven, these were yummy.  The next day, they were a little dry, but we ate them anyway.  Because face it, add some dark chocolate chips, and I'll eat just about anything. 

I was not trying to make a happy face.  They did make me and the kids happy though.  Obviously, I served them with some fresh kiwi, and on my fine china.  Gotta love paper plates.


  1. I completely SUCK at making biscuits. I mean, it's ridiculous. I can make a five star meal, I can make every sauce in the book. Make all the french food in the book. I can do everything.

    BUT...as my husband can attest to, I cannot make a biscuit to save my life.

    *sigh* I will try these, but I make no promises.

    THANKS for Sharing!

  2. Mmmmmmmmmm who woulda thunk you could put chocolate chips in a biscuit? Looks yummy with that kiwi!
