Vegan Sweet Potato Cookies

At NOBREAD we are constantly looking to develop recipes that satisfy both our gluten-free AND vegan followers. We’ve made smoothies and pancakes out of sweet potatoes, and the recipes have been some of our favorites, so this week we decided to turn our favorite root into cookies! These addicting little cookies satisfy all of our needs. They are also super kid friendly! Because sweet potatoes are sweet to begin with, we didn’t even have to add that much (NATURAL) sugar! Enjoy our latest obsession!
What You Will Need:
 2 cups of boiled sweet potatoes
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup almond flour
1T coconut oil
A dash of cinnamon
A dash of nutmeg
1 tsp of Vanilla extract
Handful of chocolate chips
What You Will Do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel sweet potatoes.
In a large pot, bring 3 cups of water to boil, add sweet potatoes, and cook for five minutes.
Mash sweet potatoes until smooth.
In a food processor combine everything but the chocolate chips.
Pulse until smooth, periodically using a spatula to mix.
Roll a tablespoon-size ball of dough in your hands, and place onto a lined baking sheet. Press the ball down a bit so it flattens. *Mix will stick to your hands a bit.
Sprinkle chocolate chips to the top of each cookie.
*DON’T put the chocolate chips IN the cookies… the warmth of the batter will cause them to melt instantly! 
Bake for 20 minutes, then broil on high for one-two minutes.
Let cool for 15 minutes, then enjoy!
The cookies are SO delicious and the best way, in our opinion, to incorporate vitamins into your dessert! Packed with Vitamins A, C, B, and fiber, there is no over-doing on these healthy cookies!
