Fluffy, delicious, subtly sweet homemade Sweet Potato Biscuits – perfect for any meal, any time of the day. Pair this with chili, as a side to your dinner, dip it in some gravy, or warm it up and spread some nut butter on it in the morning for breakfast.ย These are heavenly.
Raise of hands on who loves biscuits? I know there are many of you carbivores (yes, you read right) out there. Don’t be shy. I can eat bread like it’s nobody’s business. Doesn’t matter if its soft, fluffy roll, the crust off a slice of bread, orย crusty, chewy French bread. I’m always game.
So why not kick it up a few notches and add a bit of flavor … with sweet potato!

I was beyond thrilled by how these biscuits turned out. Fluffy with a slight hint of sweet potato flavor. Which makes it perfect for pairing it with other foods. Nothing better than a neutral recipe, right?
One key to having fluffy, thick biscuits is all in how you cut them. One thing I prefer to do is to roll out the dough to approximately 1/2-3/4 inch thickness. This way, with the help of the baking powder, the biscuits will rise to around two to three inches – avoiding flat disc biscuits.

The next morning I warmed one up for breakfast and I couldn’t help but add a spoonful of my favorite nut butter spread. I mix 1 tablespoon of nut butter with 2 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt, adding a bit of stevia and dash of cinnamon. Absolutely perfect!
