  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fermented ginger I use New Roots Herbal
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar can be replaced by brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup dairy free butter
  • 1/4 cup mashed sweet potato


  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients
  3. Make a well in the middle and add the butter, water and sweet potato puree. Combine well with your hands and form a ball
  4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead

  5. Shape into individual circles (approximately 3 inches in circumference and 1 inch thick and place on a lined baking sheet

  6. Bake for 25-27 minutes, until slightly golden (make sure it's well cooked inside and baking time can vary slightly)


These can also be cooked using a skillet a little bit of oil. If you choose to do so, heat up your oil and skillet over medium heat until it is hot. Add in the dough (you can cook it as a whole or in disks like I described above) and cook 10-15 minutes per side, until cook throughout.
