Somethings in life are too good not to share. These comforting cookies, are one of those things. Sweet, satisfying, soft, with a slight chew, moist but not too moist. They create perfect, inviting, palm-sized, BIG, beautiful cookies.
These scratched my itch, but like a mosquito bite once you scratch it sometimes it makes it worse and you scratch more, in this case I had one cookie, then a half of one later and the other half shortly thereafter. They are so good!! "Mmm, mmm, mmm" says my husband. I thought these would be a great post to share for Father's Day. Who doesn't love a cookie? Plus, no soaking, refrigerating, just mix, bake, consume, repeat.
"Damn, I gotta have the other half of that cookie" - Gerald. Haha!!
Plus, they are healthy. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of butter vs. 1 cup of sweet potato puree, 1 1/2 cups of sugar vs. 2 tbsp. of agave syrup, plus 1 egg and 1 egg yolk vs. flax meal and water. Say what? I used amaranth flour so they are busting with protein! You can have one after you work out with 12.4 grams of protein a cookie. ;) Get your cookie on with these amazing Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies! Love, Christa
