Sweet Potato Biscuits

Sometimes there's not a story to go with a recipe. I had a sweet potato and I had the hankering for biscuits!
This would be a great breakfast item for kids before school! It taste really good with maple syrup!

Sweet Potato Biscuits

1 c. sweet potato, peeled, cooked, mashed and cooled
2/3 c. almond milk or another non-dairy milk
2 tsp. white vinegar
3 TBSP. pure maple syrup
2 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour plus extra for kneading
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. extra fine sea salt
3 dashes nutmeg
2 1/2 " round dough/cookie cutter needed or can use a larger cutter but will make less

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Lay parchment paper a baking sheet

-In a large bowl, whisk together the sweet potato, milk, vinegar and maple syrup.
-Sift in the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
-Stir together until a dough ball forms.
-Flip dough on a lightly floured cutting board or counter and gently knead once and fold the dough, knead  and fold the dough again, adding a little more flour if necessary. Dough will be slightly sticky.
