Sweet Potato Biscuits

I love biscuits in every form, but especially when they’re this darn healthy.

Sweet Potato Biscuits
Makes 9 biscuits

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes (1 medium boiled sweet potato, seasoned with S&P)
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp real maple syrup
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg

Here’s what I did:

  1. Peel and dice the sweet potato. Add it to a pot of cold water and bring up to a boil. Boil until it is fork tender and mashable, about 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your dice.  Drain and mash and season to taste.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400.  Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine mashed sweet potato, oil, syrup, vinegar, and salt in large bowl. Sift in flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.
  4. Mix the ingredients with a fork until it comes together. Stir in 2 to 3 Tbs. water, or enough to get dough to hold together, if necessary (I did not need to do this).
  5. Drop golf ball–size rounds of dough onto prepared baking sheet (I used an ice-cream scoop).
  6. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and firm to the touch. Serve warm.
