While i haven.t tried this recipe myself I have been making buttermilk biscuits for my family for some time now and do not understand why adding yeast, water and sugar substitue would make this healthier then a basic buttermilk biscuit recipe that does NOT include these caloric and carbohydrate containing items (water excluded of course)
