Dukan Lavender Oat Bran Biscuits

HE SAID: A little too healthy for me.
SHE SAID: At first I didn't like these, but they are a nice change.

Half eaten Lavender Oat Bran Biscuit
Last Christmas we made Lavender Scones for our family.  The scones were a hit!  We both loved them too because they weren't too sweet and the scones were made with sour cream which gave them a bread-y texture compared to a regular scone which is a bit hard and dry.

We had some leftover lavender buds and tried to Dukan our scone recipe, but it didn't turn out quite the way we liked it.  However, it may have been because we didn't bake them long enough.  This morning we put two in the microwave and they actually taste pretty good, but it's so far from being a scone we decided to call them biscuits.  If you're into really sugary sweets, you probably won't care for these, or you could try adding more sugar.

The male half prefers not to have any more of these, but if we have the time, the female half may make these just to have another oat bran treat to munch on.  Also, we would probably cut the recipe in half to make a small batch.  We will post the original scone recipe later which can be eaten during Consolidation if you use whole wheat flour.

Makes 8 small biscuits or 4 medium sized biscuits
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit

1/2 c. oat bran
 2 T. wheat bran
1/2 - 1 tsp. dried lavender buds, chopped
1/4 t. baking soda
1/8 c. natural sweetener
1/2 c. fat free sour cream

Mix dry ingredients well.  Add sour cream, mix in but do not over mix.  Your dough will be very wet.  Make 8 biscuits, place onto cookie sheet (we used parchment paper) and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or until done.

We recommend heating your biscuit up before eating, it really helps.
