You must be thinking “What the heck is an anytime cookie?” I have posted various healthy breakfasts disguised as cakes and cookies pretty often. I wanted to make it clear to you ~ the fact that all of those recipes should be enjoyed anytime at all.
Got it? Great!! Let’s bake some anytime cookies that are a perfect way to start and end the day.
If you are pondering what these taste like they are kinda like a very tender oatmeal cookie….
That’s what my daughter said. She is cinnamon, spice and everything nice & so are these.
A few years a go I posted these Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies which were quite the hit ~ with my son and you guys.
If you want a sneaky peek as to where my photography skills started I suggest you take a look at that post.
My iPhone was my only camera option back then. Oh how things have changed around here!
These sweet potato cookies are quite different from my 2009 recipe though. These are gluten free, vegan, made with oat flour and are also free of refined sugar (that is powdered maple sugar I sprinkled on top.)
Don’t worry ~ all of my healthful changes still bake up a dang tasty cookie.
Do you ever bake with sweet potatoes? It lends itself to a very tender crumb.
