Sweet potato biscuits 

Since starting working again, well working for myself from home…shameless self promotion here~ (facebook.com/sadiesroomfurniture) baking has taken a bit of a back seat. I’m struggling to fit everything in, a problem a lot of parents with small children have. It’s so tough to find time for things you want and like to do. So today im having a day off from painting furniture and baking some biscuits. During the week we visited my favourite cafe, Moon and Hare in bruntsfield. I’ve mentioned here before, it’s healthy and yummy and organic and wholesome. Anyway the kids had a sweet potato biscuit. Sound weird I know but it looked delicious. I have no idea what was in it (other than the obvious sweet potato) or what it tasted like because the kids inhaled them faster than the speed of light. Seeing as they went down so well I thought I’d try and make up my own version. Arthur helped in the kitchen, we made a big mess, had fun and the biscuits came out pretty tasty too. Here is the recipe…

Sweet potato biscuits 


  • 1 small sweet potato (about 200g) chopped and steamed/boiled. 
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 25g ground almonds
  • 25g oatmeal 
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder 
  • 50g dates (soaked) 
  • 2 tbsp honey 


Preheat oven to 180/gas 4 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. 

Mix together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. 

In a food processor whizz up the dates, honey and cooked sweet potato. 

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Take spoonfuls of mixture and roll into balls. Flatten slightly onto the tray and score the top of each biscuit with a fork. 

Bake for 20 minutes. 

Allow to cool on a wire rack.
