Kari's Breakfast Biscuits (makes 18)

These soft, barely sweet oat biscuits are laced with moist pieces of prune. Eat them plain, or split and spread with nut butter or jam.

1 cup plain soy yogurt 
1/2 cup Chai tea concentrate (I use Third St. Chai Authentic)
3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp honey (or other liquid sweetener)
2 cups oats
1/2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup coconut flour 
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
20 prunes, chopped (about 1 cup)

In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, chai concentrate, water and honey. Add chia seeds and oats, and stir well to combine. Set aside and let rest 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375.

In medium bowl, stir together flours, baking powder, soda and salt.

Stir chopped prunes into oat mixture, then add flour mixture. Stir until all flour is incorporated. The mixture should be thick and resemble cookie or biscuit dough.

Divide dough into 18 pieces. Roll into balls and flatten to thick discs. Place discs on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake 18 minutes. Cool biscuits on wire racks.
