Sweet Potato Cookies

These have no butter, no egg and no added sugar. They are a real test of how overused to eating really sweet stuff we are. The reason I write this is that the only sweetness comes from the sweet potato and the small amount of honey brushed on the top and the cranberries. I like them and find them sweet enough but you might need to wean yourself onto them simple by adding a tablespoon or 2 of coconut sugar and each time you make then, add less and less.

These are simple to make and are lovely broken up with some yoghurt or simply with a cup of tea.

Makes 8 large 12 medium

250g cooked mashed cooled sweet potato

200g oat flour

1tsp of mixed spice

50g cranberries

Oven at 180C

Add the sweet potato to a mixing bowl and beat in the oat flour and mixed spice until you get a thick dough. Tip out onto a lightly floured counter top, knead gently to bring it all together and flatten to about 1.5cm. Cut out using a cookie cutter and place on a parchment lined tin.

Bake at 180C for 15 minutes. Brush the tops with the honey and bake for a further 5 mins approxinately until they are done.

Leave to cool then store in an airtight tin.
