From diabetic recipes web site, a low calorie, low carb Biscuit treat. Sweet Potato at that!  Passed along to me from Tricia.

Ingredients

(makes 18 biscuits)

Butter-flavored cooking spray or baking parchment paper
2 1/2     Cups  sifted Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2     Tablespoons Brown Sugar substitute
2     Teaspoons  Baking Powder
1     Teaspoon  Baking Soda
1/2     Teaspoon  Ground Nutmeg
1/2     Teaspoon  Salt
1/2     Teaspoon  Granulated Sugar
1/4     Cup Canola Oil
3/4     Cup  + 2 tablespoons Cultured Nonfat Buttermilk
3/4     Cup  mashed cooked Sweet Potato

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Lightly spray a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, and sugar.
3. In a large measuring cup, combine oil, buttermilk, and mashed sweet potato. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. (The dough will be quite dry).
4. Transfer dough to a floured work surface. Knead a few times and pat to 1 inch  thickness rectangle about 8 inches X 5 inches. Dip a sharp knife in flour, then cut the dough into thirds lengthwise. Then cut each long strip into 6 equal pieces, making 18 squares in all. Transfer biscuits to prepared baking sheet.
5. Bake about 12 to 13 minutes, until tops are golden and firm to the touch. Serve warm.
