Paleo Sweet Potato Biscuits

20150219_194723

There were some left over sweet potatoes in the fridge and I thought they’d make a nice biscuit or dessert. After searching on the internet, I was inspired by Our Fifth House’s recipe for sweet potato biscuits and varied her recipe a bit to make a dessert version:

2 cups cooked sweet potato
3 eggs
3 TBS melted butter or other fat
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 TBS coconut flour
2 TBS honey (optional)

Mix the sweet potato, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, lemon zest, salt, honey, and baking powder in the food processor until it is a smooth puree. Add the coconut flour and puree again. Drop by spoonfuls onto a lined baking pan and cook 20 – 25 minutes at 400. Actually, mine were very moist on the inside while browned on the outside. I think I will try 375 F oven for longer next time to solidify them better, although they cooled down well.
