For this cookie, I was inspired by Tina of Carrots’n’Cake. She made Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I knew once I read that post that I had to make them. I just happened to have a can of sweet potato puree on hand, so off I went! I made a few alterations to make the recipe gluten-free. My changes are below:
- 1 cup old fashioned oats (Used Bob’s Red Mill GF Oats)
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
These cookies were awesome! They aren’t as sweet as a typical oatmeal raisin cookie, but that is fine. They are chewy & I love the different textures going on.
A great cookie to offer at Christmas time as a healthier choice. I went ahead & froze most of these to test out how they freeze. The result? They don’t only freeze well, but they are pretty darn good when frozen, too!
