K was invited to a friend's house earlier this week. There were meant to be a total of four little boys - all within 3 months of each other. One of the boys that was invited has egg allergies, so while I wanted to make a treat for the kiddies, I wanted it to be egg-free. Over the weekend, K and Y had gone to the farm and picked sweet potatoes, so we had a lot of them in the house. I found a recipe for egg-free sweet potato cookies - perfect! In the end, however, the boy with the egg allergy ended up not coming. Ah well.
You start by whisking 4 tablespoons of olive oil and 30 grams of sugar.
Then add in 5 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk.
Whisk it really well.
Chop up 180 grams of sweet potato and microwave it until it is soft - about 3 minutes. Then mash it up.
Whisk the sweet potatoes into the mix.
Add in 150 grams of flour and 5 grams of baking soda.
Mix it with a spatula until a dough forms. Roll out the dough and cut into shapes.
Bake at 180C for about 15 minutes. The cookies are quite hard, and while I generally prefer soft, chewy cookies, I still found them quite tasty. Also, eating them made me feel healthy. Maybe not healthy, but better than eating a cupcake, right?!
