This is a very quick and easy way to prepare fresh low-calorie bread with any meal. Flavor with dried herbs, if desired.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
Mix cream cheese and oil in a large bowl. Add all-purpose and whole wheat flours, baking powder, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Mix until large crumbs form. Add buttermilk and mix until dough comes together in a ball. Add up to 1/4 cup more buttermilk if needed.
Turn dough out onto a work surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a round cookie cutter to cut out 12 biscuits. Place biscuits on the oiled baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately remove from the baking sheet. Serve warm.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.
To made this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
