Vegan Sweet Potato Cookies

FOOOOOOD. I've been just experimenting like a crazy in my kitchen. Sometimes I'll literally think, "Hmm... I have XYZ food in the fridge right now, I wonder what I can make with it?" And then my mind always wonders to, "WHAT WILL WYATT LIKE?" and then I go from there. Cookies duh! I sorta threw this recipe together but it turned out so well. 


What you need-

>>1 large cooked sweet potato (or two smaller ones), mashed. I bake mine at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.
>>1/2 cup of Coconut oil
>>1/2 cup of soy milk (I used very vanilla silk soy milk. Use whatever you got!)
>>1 tablespoon of maple syrup
>>2 cups of flour (you could substitute gluten free here)
>>Teaspoon of baking soda
>>3/4 teaspoon of salt
>>Teaspoon of cinnamon
>>Half cup of sugar (I used organic unbleached sugar - slowly transitioning out of the white processed junk)
>>Almonds- totally optional
>>Medjool dates - also optional

For starters, you might want to make sure your sweet potato is a little on the warm side. That way you can mash it up pretty good. I actually used sweet potatoes from the fridge, cooked from the night before. I had to nuke it for a bit to get it warm and mashable. 

1. Mix all your wet ingredients together.
2. Add in all the dry ingredients until everything turns to dough.
3. Bake at 350 for 20ish minutes. 

This cookie isn't too too sweet, so it's great for breakfast with a cup of coffee or something. Wyatt really liked it too (I made a few without almonds for him). The flavor really reminds me of Thanksgiving. I am a huge sweet potato fan! Let me know if you try these for yourself!
