Quarantined Maple Oatmeal Biscuits

I’m officially calling these “My Babies Made Me Do It Quarantined Maple Oatmeal Biscuits” and I’m not sad about it!  One baby is 4, the other baby is almost 26 weeks in my belly, and let me just say, we are some carb eating girls. 

Under normal circumstances, I do my best to limit my carb intake.  But let’s be real — we are not living under normal circumstances right now, so we’re baking and indulging in the quarantined biscuits!  

The worries are real.  

If I’m completely honest with you I’ve been an emotional roller coaster for the last, I think we’re going on 3 weeks now?  Fear of the unknown can take over my mind in a matter of seconds if I allow it.  And if I’m really really honest, I miss our daily routine. 

I am of the belief that everything happens for a reason.  And while I have no idea why the world has come to a complete halt, I do know that when I think about this ‘extra’ time we’ve been given with each other, I can’t help but be grateful.

A new routine + Maple Oatmeal Biscuits.

With all of this said, I’ve given myself a new daily routine that goes a little something like this: 

  • When worry, fear, and anxiety tries to creep their evil voices into my heart and mind, I read Psalm 91 over and over (and over once more) until I feel at peace again.
  • I’m limiting my social media views.  I think social media has the ability to be a wonderful place for people to express their hearts, share a story, and connect with others.  But it can cause a whole lot of fear too. So under these not-so-normal circumstances, I’ve got my parental controls on high alert and I’m keeping my distance! 
  • Turn off the news!  WHEW!  My curiosity can get the best of me sometimes, but when we leave the TV off, I’m at peace.  Give it a try — it’s amazing!
  • Most importantly, I’m teaching Gaby something new every day.  I haven’t decided how I feel about this homeschooling thing yet, but I have to say our one-on-one time of just learning has been wonderful.  Whether it’s learning how to recognize numbers and sight words… or maybe learning how to measure out ingredients for a new recipe, we learn something new every day!  
  • Meanwhile, I’m allowing myself to REST (and make biscuits).  This one is hard for me, but on the days I truly let myself sit, read a book, or just close my eyes for ten minutes, I feel happy and at peace again.  Worrying can drain a lot of energy out of you.  Enjoy the downtime, REST, and snack on a biscuit!

In the midst of all that’s going on in our city and world, I still love nothing more than getting in my kitchen for a little baking session.  I saw this recipe on Instagram and decided we all needed a little manna from Heaven in the modern-day form of a Maple Oatmeal Biscuit.  

If you love biscuits as much as me and my girls do, you’re going to LOVE these Maple Oatmeal Biscuits.  Eat them warm right out of the oven with a little jam or jazz these up a bit with a little honey-butter to smear in between those flakey layers.  Or make a scrambled egg sandwich like I did!  

I hope you and your family enjoy these homemade biscuits.  Stay safe, healthy and positive!

  1. 3 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  3. 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  6. 1 cup old fashioned oats
  7. 11 tbsp butter, cold and cut into small chunks
  8. 1 cup milk
  9. 1/3 cup maple syrup
For the Topping
  1. 2 tbsp melted butter
  2. 2 tbsp maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 415 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in the oats.
  3. Use a pastry cutter (or fork) to cut the butter into the flour mixture until the dry ingredients looks like pea-sized clumps.
  4. Add the milk and maple syrup to the butter/flour mixture. Fold with a spatula until combined.
  5. Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface. Gently pat the dough together. Try not to over work the dough.
  6. Pat the dough into 1 inch thickness, then fold into thirds (like a letter). Rotate the dough 90 degrees and repeat the folding process for a total of 3 times.
  7. Pat dough into 1 inch thickness and use a floured biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits. Continue until all of the dough is gone.
  8. Place the biscuits on the prepared sheet pan.
  9. Brush the melted butter and maple syrup on top of each biscuit.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Serve warm with your favorite jam!
  1. Make sure your butter and milk are very cold.
  2. Folding the dough helps to create flakey layers, but it's not necessary if you don't want that.
  3. Store in an airtight container.
  4. Reheat in the oven until warm.
