My favorite thing about these biscuits is the sneaky sweet potato ingredient that's added in, which not only gives it great flavor, but it also increases the nutritional content and fiber of the recipe, win win biscuit lovers. Feel free to use fresh baked sweet potatoes, but to help save time, I like to use this canned organic sweet potato puree.
Something that really helped me turn the corner in getting this recipe to look like biscuits (not flattened pancakes as they previously did) was to use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free One-to-One Baking Flour. So instead of using a variety of gluten-free flours to take the place of whole wheat flour, I just used one. So for those of you who can eat wheat, give this recipe a try with your traditional whole wheat flour and see how it turns out, it should hopefully work just fine. And to my gluten-free friends, enjoy not using 4 flours to make one recipe!
Enough talking, let's get right to that recipe...
Gluten-Free, Vegan Sweet Potato Biscuits
Inspried by: http://healthyalamode.com/2013/11/sweet-potato-biscuits/
Makes 13-15 biscuits
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 2 1/2 cups of Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour
- 2 Tablespoons of baking powder
- 1/2 cup of vegan butter (Earth Balance Soy-Free Buttery Spread)
- 2 cups of organic sweet potato puree (2 cans)
- 1/4 of Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener or coconut sugar

- (non-dairy milk as needed, I use Trader Joe's Original Rice Drink)
Video of how to make them:
1. Combine the gluten-free flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl
2. In a separate bowl combine the butter and Lakanto sugar.
3. Now add the 2 cups of sweet potato puree, followed by the brown rice syrup.
4. Now pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined.
5. Now scoop out some of the biscuit dough into a measuring cup around 1/4-1/3 cup or onto your hands and make into a small ball. Push it down slightly till it resembles a biscuit shape.
Then place on a baking sheet with either parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Now bake the in the oven at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
6. Once done take out and let them cool.
|Despite looking somewhat like cookies, they actually taste really good!|
So if the cracks on the top bother you, just add some toppings and eat up,
you won't even notice.
Feel free to cut the recipe in half, this is a large recipe that my girls and like to have throughout the week as snacks.
