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.

Sweet Potato Hash Browns

imageThese were simple and delicious.

The original recipe was on Epicurious, but I modified it by leaving out the red pepper, and reducing the onion, to suit my diet which has to be low in nightshade plants and onion.

Two pounds of sweet potato, diced
Bacon I use four to six slices depending on my mood
1/4 onion chopped, I reduce this because really I shouldn’t have any
1 tsp dried thyme
Salt and black pepper

Chop the bacon into small strips. Fry bacon, remove from pan, fry onion in bacon fat. Add sweet potato, cover and cook until soft. Add bacon, thyme, salt and pepper.
