1 1/4 cups
whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp
, (about 1 large)
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Spray two baking sheets with non-stick vegetable oil spray.
In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and allspice. Stir until mixed.
In another bowl, mix together the mashed sweet potato, buttermilk and melted butter. Add the sweet potato mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined—the dough will be soft and sticky.
Scoop dough by 1/4 cup (50 mL) spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving room between them for expansion. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden.
