Gluten-free Sweet Potato Biscuits

It's been almost a year since I ate biscuits because of the anti-candida diet. I couldn't resist trying these fairly ACD-friendly Gluten-free Sweet Potato Biscuits made with garbanzo bean flour. They would make a special breakfast treat for Valentine's Day for someone who must avoid gluten. Or you can eat them anytime. They also make a tasty topping for a veggie potpie, shown below.
Gluten-free Sweet Potato Biscuits

(makes 8 biscuits)


3/4 cup mashed sweet potato

1 3/4 cup garbanzo bean flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 T. olive oil

1/3 cup hemp milk (or other dairy beverage)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake a sweet potato until tender, about 45 minutes. Peel and mash the sweet potato. Set aside 3/4 cup of mashed potato for the biscuits and let cool completely. Reserve the rest for another use. Raise the oven temperature to 425 degrees.

In a food processor, pulse the flour, baking powder and soda, salt and olive oil. Add the hemp milk and sweet potato and continue blending.

Drop the dough by large spoonfuls onto a sprayed baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown. Eat them all right away or freeze the extras.
