Recipe by ladypit
READY IN: 3hrs 20mins




  • Peel the sweet potato and cut into chunks. Place in a pan and cover with cold water. Boil until soft. Drain and mash. Reserve 1 cup for this recipe and put the rest away for another time.
  • Put the warm water in a large bowl. Mix in the sucanat (or other sweetner). Float the yeast on top of the water and let it sit until bubbly and foamy (about 5 minutes).
  • To the yeast mixture add the sweet potatoes, oil, and salt. Use a mixer to beat this stuff together. Then beat in the oats and the 1 cup of white flour. Add the whole wheat pastry flour a little at a time, kneading until a smooth dough is formed.
  • Spray a metal bowl with cooking spray and place the dough inside. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until about doubled.
  • Punch down and divide into 8 balls. Spray 2 cooking sheets with spray. Form the balls and them pat them flat (like roll shapes). Put them on the cookie sheets, cover with a towel, and let rise in a warm place until about doubled.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until just starting to brown.
