Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking
powder, rice bran, apple fiber, and salt. Or you could do this in a food
processor. Add milk all at once and stir until ingredients are just
combined; if you are doing this in a food processor, pulse the machine a
few times just until dough is combined. If the dough seems a little dry,
sprinkle on a tablespoon of water and work it in.

With lightly floured hands, knead the dough for 30 seconds. Then pat and
push it out until it is 1/2 inch thick. With a 1 1/2 inch biscuit cutter,
cut the dough into about 18 rounds. Set rounds on an ungreased baking
sheet. Bake for 16 minutes or until cooked through.

VARIATIONS: To make herbed bisuits, add 1 tsp dried herbs of your choice
to the dry ingredients, before adding the milk.

To make buttermilk bisbuits, use 1% fat buttermilk instead of the
evaporated milk and substitute 2 tsp baking powder, mixed with 1/2 tsp
baking soda, for the baking powder.

To make oat-bran biscuits, substitute 1 cup oat bran for the rice bran and
apple fiber.
