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

    I’m allergic to nuts/peanuts. Is there anything i can sub for the walnuts here? And also, will other GF flours work just as well as coconut flour?

    While ghee may be gluten and caseinĀ free, it is still a dairy product.

    Veronica, I tried making the recipe first with sunflower seeds and it did not work. The taste was off. The walnuts give the biscuits a lighter texture – versus the denseness of coconut flour. I’m not sure about other GF flours as I do not eat grains.

    Although Ghee is considered dairy, there are some exceptions to the rule, and it’s perfectly fine to use it on occasion or in moderation, and only if your body can tolerate it.
