Recipe Created By: Devyani


1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 Tbsp oil
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp grated orange zest (optional)
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp ground cardamom (optional)
1/2 cup millet flour (or sorghum or rice)
1 egg (or equivalent egg replacer)
3/4 cup cooked, mashed, sweet potato


Preheat oven to 375 F. Combine sweet potato, sugar, oil, egg (or replacer), orange zest, and vanilla. In another bowl mix together all dry ingredients. Stir dry ingredients into wet mixture until just combined. Divide dough in half.

Working on a lightly floured surface, pat each ball of dough into a 6 inch round. Cut each round into 6 wedges. Transfer wedges onto a greased baking sheet. Brush tops of wedges with maple syrup.

Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Serve warm.



Substitute equal measure of sorghum or rice flour in place of millet flour.

For egg replacer, use 1 Tbsp EnerG Egg Replacer with 2 Tbsp water. This will make it egg free.
