Banana biscuits

This is strictly breakfast food...biscuits with warm gooey banana bits in the middle. Served warm with brown sugar on top, or buttered and drizzled with locally harvested honey.

Banana Biscuits
*8 biscuits, 1 mouth*
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons margarine
3/4 cup milk (skim, almond, soy...your choice)
1 medium banana, chopped
3 TB brown sugar

Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with two forks until a coarse dough forms. 

Pour milk in center and stir until dough is moistened and no lumps remain. Fold in banana. Knead dough for one minute. Roll out dough on floured surface and cut using biscuit cutter or (grandma's way) the rim of a medium drinking glass. Place on nonstick cooking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake at 400 for 12 minutes. Eat! Cut open and spread margarine and drizzle with honey (optional).

Have a great week, y'all! (I don't actually say y'all...the biscuits just inspired that Southern speak.)
