Sweet Potato Cookie

sweet potato cookie (2)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!!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 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.
