As I mentioned before, Superman does really well with sweet potatoes. They fill him up, and don’t seem to give him any negative side effects whatsoever. And that’s big. He doesn’t really do well with any sugars at this point, so if I make cookies, I cut down the honey content if he’s going to be eating them. And the other day, I came up with this recipe for him. This was kid-tested and approved, so apparently they’re not all that bad. For someone who wants to pack in some calories and fill up a bit, these are great.
Recipe: Kinda Savory Sweet Potato Cookies (makes a few dozen cookies)
2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup olive oil (like I said…these are savory. I would normally have used coconut oil, but since Superman doesn’t do well with that, I went the olive oil route)
3 TBSP honey
1 TBSP vanilla
1 small sweet potato, cooked and peeled (I just cooked it in the microwave skin-on and then cut it in half and scooped out the insides)
Preheat oven to 340 degrees. Stir all the ingredients except the sweet potato in a bowl until combined. Mash up the sweet potato and add to the mix. Mix it all together. Scoop out with a cookie scoop, or use a spoon and do about a one-tablespoon scoop. Lay on parchment paper-covered cookie sheet. Flatten a bit with your hand, put in oven for 7-9 minutes, and let cool on cooling rack for a few minutes before eating. Bon apetit!
P.S. I would recommend storing these in the fridge.
