Angie’s Recipe of the Day: Sweet Potato Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies

Serves: 12-13
Ingredients
  • 1 small sweet potato or yam (I used a sweet potato since they are white and would look more like a regular cookie)*
  • ½ cup smooth almond butter
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop (35 grams) Vanilla Protein Powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Poke holes in a sweet potato with a knife then place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until sweet potato is completely soft. Then let cool. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel sweet potato away from skin and place in a medium bowl. Mash with a fork until soft.
  3. Add almond butter, egg, honey and vanilla and mix well. Then add protein powder, cinnamon and salt and mix well.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop out batter and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. The batter should make 12-13 cookies.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Do not overcook.
