Healthy Breakfast Biscuits

This recipe comes from the Weimar Institute NEWSTART Lifestyle Cookbook, as much as we love biscuits in this family I had to give them a try.
They are really good....

Breakfast Biscuits
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon apple juice
1/2 tablespoon active dry yeast
2/3 cup clean, raw cashews
2/3 cup water
1 cup barley or oat flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat 1/4 cup water and apple juice to 115 degrees F. Pour into a bowl, then sprinkle yeast over the mixture. Process cashews and 2/3 cup water in a blender until very smooth. Add to yeast mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients and knead lightly. If dough is a little soft, add more flour. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut into rounds. Let rise for 20 minutes. Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Yields 20 23/4 inch biscuits.
