¼ C. Brown rice flour (or use more oat flour)

½ C. Rolled oats

1 Tbs. Maple syrup, optional

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375℉/190℃, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place peel and cube sweet potatoes in a pan or pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until soft, approx. 8-10 minutes. Drain and return to the pan. Mash well using a potato masher.

Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan with mashed sweet potato and mix well.

Use a cookie scoop to make cookie balls and place them on the baking tray. Then, gently press each one down with a fork to flatten and shape them. Bake the sweet potato cookies for 15-18 minutes, until golden.

Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 5 minutes and enjoy.
