aka Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits
{Picture Source: cookbookaficionado.wordpress.com}

Have I ever told you about one of our ALL TIME favorite vegetables? No? Well, it is in fact the humble sweet potato. The Vitamin C, B and phosphorus in them will help your immune system, the magnesium helps with digestion and they are good for cardiac health and keeping your arteries elastic. Besides that they taste amazing and are such a gorgeous shade of orange! Our favorite way in the whole world to eat them is as a Sweet Potato Drop Biscuit. Oh sweet baby Jesus they are AMAZING! We've never had a dinner guest not eat at least 10 of these golf ball sized biscuits and I've learned to make double or triple batches. That should be proof enough!

So we encourage you to make these to go with chili, to pack as a high energy snack, or as a surprisingly healthy breakfast and you could even compliment it with a smoothie. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes (2 small baked sweet potatoes)
  • 3 Tbs. vegetable oil (We use olive oil and that works fine too)
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (We use Bob's Red Mill Rice Flour for fluffier, spongier biscuits)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg (or you can substitute with cinnamon if you don't have nutmeg)

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray

2. Combine sweet potatoes, oil, syrup, vinegar, and salt in large bowl. Sift in flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.

3. Cut dry ingredients into sweet potato mixture with fork until mixture comes together. Stir in 2 to 3 Tbs. water, or enough to get dough to hold together.

4. Drop golf ball–size rounds of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and firm to the touch. Serve warm.

Let us know if you are a fan. These are SO simple to make and you will have people asking you for the recipe every single time.
