Easy Sweet Potato Cookies

6

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:

Updated Pancake Bites

6

NOTE: Don’t make fun of my paper bowl. I made this recipe a few weeks ago, when we were in the process of moving, and we had packed all our plates and bowls already!

I made some grain-free pancake bites a while back, and they were… fine! But I wanted to try making them better, or at least more portable. So I tweaked the recipe a little, and they are a little more cake-like now. They are no longer grain-free (unless you try using oat flour, but I didn’t do that). You know what… I really want to try using oat flour and also gluten-free flour. I’ll try that in the future! (For the record, I am writing this post WAY in advance, so by the time this is published, I may already be using oat or GF flour!)

Sugar-Free Blueberry Muffins

sugar free blueberry muffins baby led weaning

I made these today for the first time. So yummy! I found a recipe on Allrecipes.com, but I tweaked it so it didn’t have added sugar. You could easily make it dairy-free by swapping the milk with almond milk. Gluten free? I’ve never made anything with gluten-free flour, but I would assume you just swap the regular flour for the GF kind.
