It’s a very soft cookie, almost cakey. There is a light hint of coconut oil and if you don’t like the smell, then substitute butter. Personally, I liked them very much, but my son didn’t approve. So I guess I might not be making it again. But do try it…at least it has healthy sweet potatoes!
Sweet Potato Cookies with Coconut Oil
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp nutmeg grated
½ tsp cinnamon powder
½ tsp salt
¾ cup brown or white sugar
½ cup coconut oil melted
1 cup sweet potato puree
1 tsp vanilla essence
Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg powders.
In a large bowl, mix oil, sweet potato puree, sugar and vanilla. Add flour and mix. The dough will be very sticky.
Chill the dough for 30 mins. Make lemon size balls and slightly flatten them.
Place on a parchment sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 150 degree Celsius for 10-12 mins. The edges will start to brown by now.
Cool on a wire rack before storing.
Bake on the upper shelf.
If you want crispier cookies, let the cookies cool and bake again for 5-8 mins.
