These go great with soups and stews or you can use them as a breakfast entree. They are easy to do and taste really good.

Ingredients

1 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup mashed sweet potato
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey

In another bowl, whisk buttermilk, sweet potato, butter and honey. Stir into dry ingredients just until moist. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead 8 to 10 times. Pat or roll dough out to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet.
