Whole Wheat (and Vegan) Sweet Potato Biscuits

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Breakfast, Biscuits, Potatoes

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp raw sugar ( I used Agave Nectar)
  • a dash of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 whole banana, cold
  • 1 whole sweet potato, mashed


1. Cook and skin your sweet potato, then mash it with a fork or potato masher and set aside (I like it a little lumpy). Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven to 425F.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and optional cinnamon together in your food processor and pulse a few times to ensure even distribution of ingredients. Add banana, about 6”³ worth, and allow the motor to run until a dough forms, about 45 seconds.

3. I just mixed the dry ingredients in a bowl then tossed them in my kitchen-aid and beat in the banana (mashed).

4. Transfer dough to a bowl and, using clean hands, mix with about 3/4 cup (start with 1/2 cup) of the cooked sweet potato. The dough should be wet and dough-like ”” wetter than most pizza dough but dryer than cake batter.

5. It should be similar to the batter for Bisquick drop biscuits, if you”™ve ever made those.

6. Drop large spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet and bake 5-10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and the edges and bottom are turning golden brown.

7. For the Cinnamon Butter:

8. Mix 3-4 tablespoons soft butter with a 1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon.
