These Applesauce Biscuits make the perfect back to school breakfast, lunch box snack, or an easy after school snack.
My girls have been back to school for almost a week… however this is their first full week of school. It has gone great! They are back into a routine, doing homework, and getting to bed on time. In the mornings my job as a mom is too make sure they have a good breakfast and I also pack them a lunch. My mornings are pretty easy. I enjoy making breakfast for them. I enjoying sitting down with them. After breakfast is over, I usually pack them their lunch for the day.
I am always looking for new ideas, things to make or buy to put into their lunches. I try and pack healthy items. I am now putting at least 2 fruits into their lunches. I haven’t always done this. If I pack a fruit, and then some of these babies they get more fruit. Yea for eating healthy!
These applesauce biscuits are perfect! I can whip a batch for breakfast and then throw one in their lunch the next day for lunch.
My girls loved them! Heck… I loved them.
This school year is going to rock. My breakfasts are going to rock and so are their lunches that are stuffed with these applesauce biscuits.
Here is the recipe…

*adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Complete Book of Baking
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup applesauce
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, allspice, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening, until crumbly.
Mix butter and applesauce in small mixing bowl. Add to flour mixture all at once.
Using a fork, stir until just moistened.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough 10-12 times.
Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness.
Cut dough with a biscuit cutter. * I didn’t have one, so I used the lid of Spray Pam.
Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
I hope you and your kids have a successful school year!
