paleo sweet potato biscuits


I have been hemming and hawing all week about what to share this week.  Inspiration left me so I turned to Facebook to see what people were missing on the Paleo diet and Carrie S was kind enough to share that breads and cookies were high on her list.

I tried my first attempt at a Paleo flat bread and it was a complete and utter failure.  I’ll keep working on that but I had some walnuts in my cupboard calling me.   I could hear them saying “Kelly turn me into something tempting” and so I did.  I created Paleo Sweet Potato Biscuits.   I seriously love this recipe.  My son and I gobbled them down and I had to make another batch to take photos.  I didn’t soak the walnuts which was bad but oh man they were worth it.  Also, I’ll be sharing a tutorial later this week on how I soak and dehydrate nuts.

Yield: 6

Paleo Sweet Potato Biscuits

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 Tablespoon ghee
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large egg


  1. Grind the walnuts in your food processor until you get a flour.
  2. In a small bowl add the ground walnuts, baking soda, salt and coconut flour and mix thoroughly.
  3. Peel and shop the sweet potato and boil until soft. Take 1/2 cup of the mashed sweet potato (set the rest aside) and add the ghee and blend.
  4. Let it cool slightly and then add in the egg.
  5. Add the sweet potato to the flour and mix. The mixture should be slightly wet and sticky.
  6. You can either grab a small amount and do drop biscuits or pat out on to a piece of parchment paper and cut into circles. You will have to use a spatula to move the dough to a greased baking sheet.
  7. Bake in the oven at 350 for 12 - 15 minutes.
  8. This will make 6 small biscuits roughly 2" round and half an inch tall.

These are fantastic! I just pulled a batch out of the oven and am so happy with this recipe. I do a lot of experimenting with paleo baking and am prepared for eggy almost quiche like or very dense end results, these are anything but! They definitely look the part and come out light and fluffy. Will definitely be making again, the only thing I'd change is perhaps doubling the recipe!

Have you tried almonds instead of walnuts?? I think I might try both, they sound great! Will share results~

These were very good with some butter on them. They have a mild taste, I'm tempted to try the recipe with some honey and then try it with some garlic.

I have a question. When you say sweet potatoes, would that be the lighter color ones? We have yams, the orange ones in our area. Does it matter about the potato? I want to make these so bad :) Thanks so much for your awesome recipes!
