Cheesy Bacon Sticks

This is a great on-the-go breakfast!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
6 ounces shredded white cheddar cheese
6 bacon slices, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1 cup plain yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the cubed butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cheese and crumbled bacon - toss well to combine. Pour in yogurt and stir just until combined. Scoop the mixture out to a lightly floured surface and knead just until it forms a dough, about 10 to 15 times. Pat the dough out until it is about a 8" square. Evenly divide the dough in half, then cut each half into 8 sticks - place each stick onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until golden, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly before serving.
