Chocolate Chip Breakfast Biscuits

We like a lot of variety in our breakfast routine. It’s so easy to just stick with the oatmeal or pancake stand-bys, but I try to rotate things as much as possible. At the very least, I make sure we do not eat the same thing two days in a row.

This morning, I needed a breakfast that would come together quickly but still be a treat for my husband’s birthday. Then I remembered – chocolate chip breakfast biscuits! I’ve made these quite a few times in the past and they are always a HUGE hit. For whatever reason though, they’ve been forgotten about until today. They are so good that I doubt I’ll be making that mistake again!
Chocolate Chip Breakfast Biscuits

  • 3 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. baking powder
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1-2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1/2-1 c. milk

1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Stir in chocolate chips.

2. Add the milk, a little at a time, just until dough comes together. If you accidentally add too much milk and the dough becomes sticky, just add a little more flour.

3. Roll out dough and cut, or just drop 1/4 c. portions onto a baking sheet. (That’s what I did.) Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until fully cooked and lightly browned on top.

  1. Hi, Kate,

    I enjoy your blog!

    How many biscuits (more or less) do you get from this recipe? And, if you choose to roll them, about how thick? I’m not normally a biscuit maker, but these sound great. School’s cancelled tomorrow and I thought these would make a fun “snow day” breakfast.


  2. Hi Sarah. For drop biscuits, I probably got 18. I would roll the dough probably about an inch and a half thick. You might have to cook them a little longer though.

    Thanks! So glad you enjoy my blog.

  3. Sounds yummy! I am not much of a fan of choclate for breakfast, but in my family that makes me the minority. Looking firward to giving it a try.

  4. I probobly make the same thing for breakfast 4 days out of 7! However, I am trying to get better at it.

    What could be better than chocolate for breakfast! Can’t wait to try these!

  5. Swwwweeett!! a recipe that is quick to do and would be a hit with my family too! We are trying to get poptarts out of the house so these could be a good replacement! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Mmmmm…guess what’s for breakfast this morning!? 2nd day of being snowed in…I need something to keep my kiddos from whining!

  7. I just printed out a copy. I am planning to make them in the morning before my son’s basketball game. Thanks for a great idea!

  8. do you still include the baking powder and soda if using self rising (or another way of asking is do you use all purpose flour?)

  9. I wanted to let you know….I was rather inspired by your blog and made myself a menu plan. I picked up all my groceries this past weekend and we’re are loving all the recipes we’ve tried thus far. This morning I made this recipe and even my daughter who doesn’t care for milk chocolate loved them! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful journey!

  10. I was all snowed in today, and wanted to make chocolate chip pancakes for my fiance, but i did not have enough buttermilk. I stumbled upon your recipe and decided to try. I changed a few things and i wanted to share. I used buttermilk because that was all i had, i also used about 3 more tablespoons of butter, plus 2 tsp of vanilla extract. They came out pretty good, but next time i think i need either more regular or more buttermilk, maybe 2 cups.

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. These are in the oven right now and my 4 year old daughter can’t wait to have them! This is the second time I’ve made them, so I had to let you know how much we enjoy them. I also make them as drop biscuits and they are so easy! Thanks for a great recipe!

  12. my 3 year old was down right begging for chocolate chips for breakfast and wouldn’t relent. this was a great alternative. she loved making them and squishing them into the shapes she liked for her own ‘drop’ style. we sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar that we use on toast and they were yummy. great cooking time with her and yummy breakfast for all. thanks!

  13. I just made these yesterday for my family. They are so delicious! As my husband put it, “these are too good to eat just one!” I completely agree. Thank you for another easy, simple, and super delicious recipe!

  14. Oh, by the way, I used a large cookie scoop to drop them onto my baking sheet. It was less mess, quick, and they were all uniform in size. Just a little tip. =)

  15. These are delicious, and so easy to put together. I like that they can be dropped, rather than rolled out. Super recipe! Thanks so much.

  16. Love these biscuits for those days I find myself with out any eggs in the fridge. I have made them a few times now, and everyone in the family loves them! I had some mini chocolate chips in the freezer and used them instead of the regular size and we liked it better. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe!

  17. These biscuits are all the rage around here! I’ve commented before, but I just wanted to let you know that we still enjoy them regularly! Yesterday, in our Homeschool Co-op, my group (K-2) made this recipe all together. We discussed the importance of measuring and having certain ingredients together, etc. The kids loved it. And all of them begged me to give their moms the recipe because they loved them so much. THANK YOU for sharing this recipe with us!

  18. These whipped up quickly and easily, and were a huge hit with my kids on breakfast for dinner night! I’m definitely saving this recipe, thanks for sharing!
