My family ate these biscuits up so fast!


  • 1 1/4 c. spelt flour
  • 2 tsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 tbs. butter
  • 1 sml. sweet potato
  • 2 tbs. almond milk
  • 1 tbs. butter
  • 1 pinch coconut sugar
  • 10 pecans


Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Peel and slice the sweet potato into pieces and boil in water until soft. Drain. Mash sweet potato and place in the refrigerator.

Stir together spelt flour, 2 teaspoons coconut sugar, baking powder, sea salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl until it is well combined. Using your fingers, work the 4 tablespoons of cold butter (cut into small pieces) into the flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal.

Stir in the cooled sweet potatoes. Then add the almond milk a little at a time until the mixture can be gathered into a soft ball.

Make 9-10 balls and pat each one to about 1/2-inch thick. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

OPTIONAL: Brush the tops of each biscuit with 1 tablespoon melted butter and sprinkle a little coconut sugar over each biscuit. Press a pecan half into the top of each biscuit.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
