    Can I use agave and whole wheat flour instead? If so, how much of each?

      Whole Wheat Flour is little too dense and will not allow the biscuits to be airy and light, I would go with white whole wheat and test it out or just use plain AP. You can definitely use Agave too :)

      Would it be possible to sub in a different type of flour instead ? Would coconut or almond work ?

      We absolutely love the phtoos Morgan! Yall did a fantastic job and it is going to be so hard to decide which ones to have printed and which ones to put in the books.

    Hi Catherine~

    When I made it, the dough came very sticky. I followed the recipe and I may have put a little too much sweet potato but would this have done that? Also, I didn't pulse..just blend?? They taste good, but it was so I couldn't use cookie cutters..

    My 3Yr old made the crockpot oatmeal with me after dinner. He is staying home tomorrow from school and we are going to make these biscuits. He is going to be so excited. I wish I had a picture of his satisfied grin when he turned on that crockpot tonight.
    Do you think I could use coconut oil instead of butter in most of these recipes? I love that stuff. Thanks for the recipes :)
