Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Baby Biscuits

image

I’m avoiding wheat for the kiddo for her first couple years & am trying to avoid giving her crappy filler food so I’ve had to dive into the terrifying world of paleo/gluten free baking. I don’t know if this recipe fits those descriptions perfectly, but for my baby food purposes it’s a definite win. She likes them. I like them. Yay delicious snacks!

Recipe

1 cup cooked sweet potatoes (I just bake one in its skin for 45 minutes, then it rolls right out of the skin)
2 eggs
1/4 cup liquid coconut oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 tablespoons coconut flour

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk the eggs, cream in the sweet potato, then mix all ingredients together into a smooth paste.

Spread dough mixture over a parchment lined baking sheet about 1/4 inch thick.

Cook for 20 minutes

Cut the dough into whatever size works for your kiddo. I used a pizza cutter to do it. Worked like a darn.

Toss back in the oven for another 20.

That’s it! Easy enough to cut the recipe in half if you don’t need a whole tray’s worth. I just find most sweet potatoes are about a cup and this makes my life easy. Plus, I have no problem tossing some in the freezer and then, once thawed, toasting them in the oven again.

I’ve also made the recipe with no peanut butter, with cheese instead of peanut butter…there’s a whole of variations that are possible here. If you come up with some fantastic way to quirk it let me know in the comments!


Broken

Newtown, ConnecticutI refuse to believe that hunters and responsible gun owners can’t have a meaningful conversation about better gun laws. The same way I believe that more can be done to identify people who are either mentally ill or just plain evil. As a society, and as individuals, we need to realize that whatever systems we have in place right now are not working and we have to take action to find something that does.


Big NFL Prediction

My fella has said he wants to go on record predicting the Houston Texans will make it to the Super Bowl this year. He says, while they are masters of nothing, they have an amazing all-around team that he thinks is going all the way.

I’ll consider this my proof on February 3rd if he was right or not.

(And, for the record, he’s a Saints fan, not a Texans fan so this isn’t just a bandwagon prediction.)


Can’t…stop…laughing….

That right there is why you should never get a hairless cat.
Or, if you do, why you shouldn’t get a male.
Or, if you do, why you should get it fixed.
Or, if you don’t, why you shouldn’t let it lie on top of your monitor.

(I have absolutely no idea whose cat or photo this is or I’d give credit.
It’s just one of those ridiculously awesome things you find on the internet)
