From back when I had friends that brewed beer, i froze a bunch of spent grain to make bread and things in the future.
I took some out to make some biscuits to enjoy with our fav shrimp dish recently.
If you don’t have spent grain – here is another option of a zucchini biscuit with buttermilk.

- 1/2 cup buttermilk, shaken. if using powder, add powder to dry and add water to wet.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Stir together flour, spent grain, baking powder and soda, and salt. (buttermilk powder if using it)
- Blend in butter with butter cutter until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
- Stir in cheese until just combined. Add buttermilk or water and stir until just combined.
- Using a baking mat or a well buttered baking sheet drop dough into mounds (for more uniform biscuits use well buttered ring molds).
