Healthy Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

December 11, 2015 0 Comments


We love Sweet Potatoes and we love biscuits so it wasn't too hard to figure out we'd love this recipe! In fact, it was hard to keep the biscuits on the plate long enough to photograph these tasty suckers.

They go along perfectly with our Homemade Classic Chicken Noodle Soup recipe from last week and once you whip up this easy ingredient list into shape we think you'll agree! 


  • 1 c. Cooked Sweet Potato (318g)
  • 1/2 c. Fat Free Greek Yogurt (113.5g)
  • 1 1/2 c. Whole Wheat Flour (173g)
  • 4 t. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 t. Salt
  • 1/2 t. Nutmeg
  • 2 T. Butter







Wash, peel and dice up your Sweet Potato.

Put it in a pot and add water to just the top of the potatoes. 


Bring them to a boil and turn the temperature down, cover and simmer for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. (test it by poking with a fork or knife. It should slice like softened butter.)


Drain and let cool.


Now add all your dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together.

Here's a trick.....grate your butter over the dry ingredients. This makes it easier to incorporate it into the flour mixture.

Now use a fork and mix it together until it forms small crumbs.

 By now you should be able to mash up your Sweet Potatoes. If it's lumpy, that's ok.


Measure out your Yogurt and whip it up till its nice and smooth. Add your Sweet Potatoes and blend these wet ingredients together.

Now, pour the wet ingredients into your dry and fold them together. 

You scrape around the edges and fold it over the center of the bowl. Around and around.

Helpful Tip:  You do not want to whip it up or over mix your Bisquit batter. This will make them turn out tough, instead of flakey.

Once it's all incorporated together, turn it out onto your floured counter top. You may need to knead a little more flour into your dough. 

Press it out to about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick and cut your Bisquits. (If you don't have a Bisquit cutter, use a knife and make square ones!)

Lightly spray your tray.

Heat your oven to 425

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes ....until golden brown.


Mmmmm mmmm, hot Bisquits right out of the oven!!

A little about Sweet Potatoes: 

Our little (or sometimes big, depending on where you buy them) Sweet Potato friends are a great source of beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, iron, vitamin B6 and fiber. These orange health grenades are definitely Buff Dudes Approved and if you've never had them we think you'll agree!
