Easy Sweet Potato Cookies


All you need for these cookies is the following:

  • 1 medium sweet potato (see the picture for the size!)
  • 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas
  • whole milk
  • coconut oil (or whatever oil you want to use)

Peel and chop the sweet potato. It doesn’t have to be perfect since you’re just boiling it. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. (I had a 19-ounce can, so I just used most of the can.) Boil the sweet potato and the chickpeas for about 20 minutes, until the potatoes are soft. While that’s boiling, preheat your oven to 350F. Puree the potatoes, peas, 1/4 cup of milk, and 1 spoonful (about a tablespoon) of oil. Scoop the mixture onto some parchment paper (or a greased baking sheet). I wanted to make some “mommy” versions. These have some flavor, but they aren’t sweet like cookies! So I sprinkled cinnamon and brown sugar on top on half of them. Now, you have to bake them a while! First, bake for 25 minutes. THEN flip them and bake for another 10-15 minutes! I know I know, it’s a long time. But I think you’ll love them. Alexander really enjoyed his!     Here is your printable recipe: Keep Reading!...
