Biscuits and Gravy


    For the biscuits:
  • 1 large sweet potato or yam (equivalent to 2 cups mashed)
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 3 tbs coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbs fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs fresh thyme
  • 3 tbs coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbs arrowroot powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
