Gluten Free Sweet Potato Biscuits


I was at a recent social event and someone made gluten-free sweet potato biscuits. I was so excited that there was something there I could actually eat. They were so good I asked for the recipe. When I got it and saw all that was in the original recipe I knew that I had to re-create it making them healthier. These were not only delicious, but also quick and easy to make!
