Healthy ranch stuffed bell peppers. A quick whole30 and paleo meal for the whole family! Stuffed with cauliflower rice and chicken.
2 and ¼ cups all purpose flour, chilled
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 and ½ Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
7 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold and diced
1 cup buttermilk, cold + more for brushing
For brushing (optional):
2 Tbsp Melted butter
1 Tbsp honey
- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place diced butter in the freezer while you prepare the ingredients.
- In a food processor or in a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pulse or whisk to combine.
- Add the cold butter and pulse several times, until you get coarse crumbs. Alternatively, you can use a fork or pastry cutter to cut butter into the flour mixture until all the flour is coated and crumbly. There should be chunks of butter remaining.
- If you were using a food processor, pour the mixture into a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the bowl. Pour the cold buttermilk into the center of the well and slowly mix and cut the flour into the milk with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until the flour is moistened. Do not overmix.
- Turn dough out onto a non-stick mat or a floured workspace and gently mold into a rectangle. Fold into thirds, then pat into a rectangle. Turn the dough halfway and repeat. Do this step a total of three times. Add flour as needed, but try not to add too much. See the step-by-step photos above for guidance.
- Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle and use a sharp round cookie cutter to cut out your biscuits. (Do NOT twist the cutter)
- Place in a large skillet, making sure the edges are touching, and lightly press down the center of the dough with your thumb. Brush some extra buttermilk on top.
- Bake for 15 minutes, or until tops are golden. While biscuits are baking, combine the melted butter with the honey.
- Remove biscuits from oven and immediately brush the tops with the honey butter glaze. Serve warm and enjoy!
- Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
- I forgot to do this, but a good tip is to chill your flour in the freezer with your butter. It’s best if all your ingredients are cold to keep the butter from warming up.
