This was an easy no bake oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that was done in a pot on the stove with not a lot of effort. Also, I used coconut palm sugar that is high in nutrients and it doesn't raise your blood sugar. The texture of the cookie is very chewy and between the dark chocolate chips and cocoa powder, it had a perfect amount of a heavenly chocolate flavor. Adapted from: Imperfectly Healthy
1/4 cup baked sweet potato
1/4 cup milk (I used almond milk)
3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
In a medium sauce pan, warm the sweet potato, milk, sugar, and cocoa and using a wire whisk stir well and then add peanut butter and vanilla, mix well. With a large spoon, stir in oatmeal, flax seed and chocolate chips.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, drop a teaspoon of dough on the cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until hard. Enjoy!
