Why Sweet Potato Biscuit Bites Are Great for Toddlers

  1. Nutrient-Packed Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are a superfood for kids, loaded with vitamins A and C, fiber, and essential nutrients that help boost their immune system and promote healthy growth.
  2. Naturally Sweet: Sweet Potato Biscuit Bites are naturally sweet, making them a perfect treat for your toddler. You won’t need to add sugar, and your little one will love the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes and bananas.
  3. Quick and Easy: This recipe is not only delicious but also incredibly easy to prepare, which is a lifesaver for moms on the go. You can whip up a batch in no time, and they’re perfect for snacking at home or on the go.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sweet potato puree (cooked and mashed sweet potatoes)
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

Substitutions

Sweet potato- you could use carrot instead

Banana- can leave it out, but if you want to add in some extra sweetness, add in some apple sauce

All purpose flour- can sub for another flour

Instructions:

  1. Prep Your Sweet Potato Puree: Begin by cooking and mashing your sweet potatoes until you have a smooth, lump-free puree. Measure out 1 cup of sweet potato puree and place it in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add Mashed Banana: Mash a ripe banana and add it to the sweet potato puree. The banana not only adds natural sweetness but also moisture and flavor.
  3. Mix Dry Ingredients: Combine the flour and baking powder. Then, slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the sweet potato and banana mixture, stirring until you have a soft dough.
  4. Add Melted Butter: Pour in the melted butter and stir until it’s well incorporated. The butter will give your Sweet Potato Biscuit Bites a lovely, rich flavor.
  5. Form Biscuit Bites: Knead the dough with your hands and spread it out until it is pretty thin, about 1/4th an inch.
  6. Bake: Place your biscuit bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake them at 350°F (175°C) for approximately 10 minutes.

Storage:

If you happen to have any Sweet Potato Biscuit Bites left over, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two. If you’d like to keep them fresh longer, refrigeration is the way to go. Simply place them in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to a week.

For longer-term storage, consider freezing your Sweet Potato Biscuit Bites. Here’s how:

  1. Cool Completely: Allow your biscuit bites to cool completely at room temperature before freezing.
  2. Arrange on a Tray: Place the cooled bites on a tray in a single layer, ensuring they aren’t touching each other. This step helps prevent them from sticking together during freezing.
  3. Freeze on the Tray: Put the tray with the biscuit bites in the freezer for about 2 hours or until they’re solid.
  4. Transfer to a Freezer Bag or Container: Once they’re frozen solid, transfer the bites into a freezer-safe bag or container. Remember to label and date it for easy identification.
  5. Store in the Freezer: These bites can be stored in the freezer for up to three months.

To reheat, just pop the frozen bites in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for a few minutes, and they’ll be as good as new. This makes them a fantastic make-ahead snack for busy days when you need a quick and wholesome treat for your toddler. Enjoy making and sharing these nutritious bites with your little one!
