5 Ingredients Sweet Potato Almond Butter Cookies (Vegan, GF)


5 ingredients, easy to make cookies sweetened with veggies and fruit. These cookies are vegan and gluten-free and perfect for breakfast or a snack. All ingredients are wholesome and probably in your pantry!


Sweet potatoes....I love them. Mainly I buy them to chop and steam and eat with greens, rice and an amazing sauce or dressing but tonight I steamed a huge sweet potato for two different recipes: cookies and oatmeal. The oatmeal recipe is coming later this week.


Sweet potato are so sweet that you forget you're eating a veggie. Added to any dish, they minimize the need for extra spices or sweetness and kind of hold their own. So they are perfect for a dessert and I ended up peeling a few pieces and adding them to these cookies. I whipped up these cookies in my food processor in no time at all.

1 cup of quick cook oats
1 cup of smooth almond butter
1 very ripe banana
1/2 cup of peeled sweet potato
2 tsp of baking powder
Sea salt

Add everything to your food processor and process on high. You will have a sticky, creamy food processor full of cookie dough. I used a table spoon to scoop out the cookie dough onto a cookie sheet (spray first with oil). Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until a little crisp on the outside and soft inside. Store in an airtight container.

Stay tuned for my sweet potato oatmeal recipe.....

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
