OMG you guys, you have to try these. They are so good! In August, I posted an original recipe, Flourless Sweet Potato Brownies, and they instantly became popular on the web. Yesterday, I had some leftover Baked Sweet Potatoes in the fridge, so I broke them out and decided to try a flourless sweet potato cookie. I also added dark chocolate pieces and chopped almonds. I really think that adding the chopped almonds was the secret to making these so good. Adding Crunchy almonds to flourless cookies really adds depth to these cookies.
One of the reason why these cookies taste so good, is because I used REALLY good ingredients. In addition to the lovely already baked sweet potatoes, I also used almond butter, chopped almonds and DARK, DARK chocolate pieces.
Flourless Sweet Potato Cookies With Dark Chocolate and Almonds
1 Packed Cup of Naked Mashed Sweet Potatoes
2/3 cup of Almond Butter ( or the nut butter of your choice.)
2 teaspoons of Coconut oil
1/4 cup of chopped almonds ( I chopped almonds in my food processor, so they were pretty small pieces)
1/4 cup chopped Chocolate pieces ( or the chocolate chip of your choice)
1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of coconut sugar, or your sweetener of choice
Mix together, all the ingredients in your mixer. Mix the ingredients together, until you get a cookie dough-like consistency
Using a Cookie Scoop, arrange cookie dough into 1 inch by 1 inch balls ( these will be more like globs) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Bake at 350 degrees for 16-18 minutes
Let the Cookies cool a bit before eating, so they don’t fall apart. The longer you wait to eat them, the more like a real cookie they will seem.
Omg! I must say, I prefered these cookies to my Flourless Sweet Potato brownies! I loved these! Plus, these cookies are healthy!
But just because something is healthy, does not make it low calorie. Almonds are healthy, but if you are trying to watch what you eat, you shouldn’t eat a whole bag of almonds in one sitting. Or a whole dark chocolate bar. ya know? Even healthy desserts should be eaten in moderation, just like any other dessert. What this dessert is, is a dessert made from healthy ingredients that have substance to them, not empty sugar calories.
Both my husband and son gobbled these up. I must say, adding chopped nuts to flourless cookies is a GREAT idea. It doesn’t make them seem so . ya know, FLOURLESS
I love almost bitter, dark chocolate. These flavors were out of this world! I can’t wait to play around with this concept again!
