Heather Nauta of Healthy Vegan Recipes shows us how to make delicious vegan biscuits for Christmas and Winter Holiday festivities.
Heather states on YouTube: "This sweet potato biscuits recipe was given to me by a friend a few years ago. It wasn't vegan, but was easily adapted. These biscuits are perfect as part of a holiday meal, and incorporate sweet potatoes in a different way than usual. Vegan Christmas recipes for sweet potatoes are often my favorites since I love the flavor, and I am eternally grateful to the friend who gave me her amazing recipe."
Prep Time: 60 min. Cooking time: 10 min.
Time from start to eating: 1:10.
Makes 12 biscuits.
1 small sweet potato
3 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 cup whole grain flour
2 tsp baking powder
Bake the sweet potato at 350F for about 45 min. until tender.
Allow it to cool, then remove the pulp and mash.
Measure out 1 cup.
Combine the mashed sweet potato in bowl with half the coconut oil and all of the maple syrup.
Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to the potato mixture and blend well with a fork.
On a floured board, pat the mixture out into a 1/2 inch thick circle and cut into 1 inch rounds, or simply drop spoonfuls of dough.
Put them onto greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet, then brush each with some of the melted coconut oil.
Bake at 375 F for 10 minutes, or until lightly golden on top.
Serve fresh and hot.
