Yellow Squash Cheesy Biscuits – a Dietitian’s twist on a biscuit…always sneakin’ in those veggies!

A healthy lifestyle, in my opinion, is about balance and being realistic. Some days I eat salads and drink kombucha, and some days I eat three yellow squash cheesy biscuits and eat cookies. Life balance. 😉

 I get tired of sautéing my squash so I wanted to try something different. This is what I came up with…complete yumminess!! Yumminess? Yep, just made up a new word. Who knew sneaking a veggie into your biscuits would turn out so well!? I don’t have kids yet, but I think this would be perfect for them if I did! 

Like what you see?! Pin this recipe for later!

No reviews yet


  • 1 large yellow squash
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1 cup Coconut flour
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne
  • 3/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Using a cheese grater, grate the yellow squash and set aside. Combine all of the dry ingredients and the stir in the squash. (I used my hands because it was easier!)
  • Add in the butter, milk, honey and cheese. Get a little bit of flour on your hands, and use your hands to mix it all up! Roll into balls - really whatever size you prefer.
  • In a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish, place the dough balls next to each other with about 1 inch space in between.
  • Bake for 22 minutes, or until lightly golden on top. Serve with butter and enjoy!

 I had fun making this recipe especially since it was made with a different ingredient than I’m used to including in squash. Another different ingredient I used was coconut flour. Coconut flour is certainly growing in popularity mainly because it is gluten-free. Nutritionally, it is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats. It also has a low score on the glycemic index if you are concerned about the GI of foods!

We all have heard the phrase…”Everything in moderation.”  The word moderation can mean different things to different people. I think eating in moderation means eating the right amount of foods while meeting your individual nutritional needs and maintaining a healthy weight. Also, having a variety is key as well! Knowing that it is OK to treat yourself to something once in a while and not label foods as “good” or “bad” helps with having a healthy mentality and relationship with food.

Made this for dinner tonight. The flavor was very baking soda-y. If I made again I would cut the soda to 1 tsp. They were okay otherwise. Just not great.
