I wanted to make our Whole30 Reintroduction totally and completely worth it. So we woke up and I made these delectable Sweet Potato Biscuits! Since we just want to test out one potentially-bothersome food group at a time, I used regular, gluten-filled flour for this recipe but replaced what would typically be cream and butter with coconut milk and ghee. I have yet to try these with coconut or almond flour to make them paleo approved… have you? Comment below and let me know how they turned out!

First, you’ll mix together the dry ingredients in a big bowl that will eventually house the entire dough. Next, mix together the mashed sweet potato and full-fat coconut milk.

Into the dry mixture, cut the ghee. Make sure that it is really cold- this is essential for biscuits!

Use your hands to quickly knead the ghee into the dry ingredients. You don’t want to warm up the ghee too much, so be quick like a fox!

Next, add the sweet potato mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. Knead dough on a floured surface to fully incorporate, being sure not to overwork (the dough will still be lumpy).

Flour a rolling pin and roll the dough until it is about 3/4 in- 1 in thick. Watch carefully and don’t roll the dough too thin- they will rise, but the thickness of the dough is what makes them thick and fluffy!

Use a glass with about a 3″ rim to cut the biscuits (or use a shot glass to make mini biscuits!). Cut and place the biscuits one at a time onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Top each biscuit with more coconut milk! Because, why not?

Next, pop them in the oven on 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes, depending on the oven! They will look light and fluffy when they’re done. You’ll be able to tell if they’re still too doughy when you pull them out. Then enjoy with your favorite Whole30-approved jams and jellies!
