Spent grain is amazing! These are the flaky blueberry biscuits with a lemon glaze.

Homebrewing has a byproduct of whole grains, which can be made into flour (Thanks to Brooklyn Brewers). This flour can then be substituted into recipes to make delicious food. This is my recipe for my take on Bo-Jangles’s Bo-Berry Biscuits. I also substituted half of the milk in the recipe for goats milk, mostly to enrich the flavor and add a creamy texture. The entire thing could be made with dairy milk.



1/2 c spent grain flour (Can use 2 c flour if you don’t have spent grain)

1 1/2 c flour

1/2 c canned goats milk (can be elimited, use 1 c milk)

1/2 c milk

1/3 c sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

handful of dried blueberry (about 3-4 oz)

1 teaspoon salt

5 Tbs butter


1 c powdered sugar

1/8 c water

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp lemon juice (optional)


1. 30 minutes before cooking, place the butter in the freezer.

2.. Preheat oven to 450 F

3. Mix together all dry biscuit ingrediants (spent grain, flour, sugar, blueberries, baking powder). Then add the milk and mix well.

4. Take the butter out of the freezer, and cut into chunks. Mix these chunks into the dough mixture until they are mixed in. If your kitchen is really hot, then you may need to stick your dough in the freezer for a few minutes.  Form six biscuits. (I hand form them, but some roll them out).

5. Bake for 7-10 minutes.

6. Prepare glaze. Mix all of the ingredients together. Drizzle glaze onto the biscuits with a spoon.

7. Eat and Enjoy!
