I came across a recipe in a local magazine for spice cookies however there were a quite a few ingredients that I could not use such as eggs, and all purpose flour. So I decided to see if I could create my own recipe, I think I found a new favorite cookie!
1 Medium Baked Sweet Potato (approx 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cup) 1 cup Brown Rice Flour 1/2 cup Tapioca Starch 1 tbl Flax Meal 1 tsp Baking Powder 3/4 cup + 1 tbl Brown Sugar 1/4 tsp Nutmeg 1/4 tsp All spice 1/4 cup Oil 2 tbl Vanilla
Bake sweet potato at 350 for approx 40 mins - should be soft and skin should be loose.
Preheat oven to 375
Mix rice flour, tapioca starch and baking powder, once mixed well add in flax meal, brown sugar, nutmeg and all spice and mix.
Next mix in the oil and vanilla, then add in sweet potato (I usually peel off the skin with my hands and squeeze the potato into the bowl). I find it easier to mix the sweet potato in by hand, should form into a ball.
I scooped out 1 tbl spoon of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then rolled each piece of dough into a bowl and pressed it down with a fork.
Bake for 10-12 mins - lightly golden Makes approx 22-24 cookies
