These cookies are packed with good stuff and still taste great! Perfect for a little sweet tooth without any guilt afterwards!
I found the recipe on leangreenbean.com and adjusted it to what I like and had at home. I love anything made with coconut flour, yum! The base is made of mashed sweet potatoes – packed with vitamin A. There is also 23% calcium, 15% iron and 13g of fiber in one cookie!!
- 1 cup sweet potato, cooked and mashed
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (add 1 tbsp for additional sweetness)
- 2 tbsp. chia seed
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour (may need to add an extra 1tbsp)
- 1 tsp baking soda
Steam sweet potatoes for 15 minutes and mash. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add all ingredients together and add extra flour if too runny. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop out cookies. Bake 10-15 minutes. Makes 12 cookies.
