Baking Tips For Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookies
I made the decision to not remove all the potato skin because it’s packed with antioxidants like vitamin A and adds some texture. But you can remove all of it and the cookies will be just as good!
At this point is when you should preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Next Combine cooked sweet potato, almond flour, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl
Use a hand held electric mixer and blend on low for chunky texture or high for a more “whipped” texture. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Next Separate your sweet potato cookie dough into 12 equal portions. Then Roll each portion into balls with the palms of your hands. Lay the cookie dough balls on baking sheet.
Lastly, Flatten them with a fork or palms of your hands. Bake your healthy cookies for 12-15 minutes. This healthy vegan recipe for sweet potato cookies is gluten free and plant based. Thanks for reading my healthy breakfast cookie recipe!
