  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large banana (mashed)
  • 3/4 cup crushed raw peanuts


  1. Preheat oven at 350-degree Fahrenheit and
    prepare a cookie sheet with a greased parchment paper.

  2. In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients
    (except crushed peanuts). Mix it with a spatula or hands until all the ingredients
    are well blended. Let it rest for 5 minutes or until it becomes sticky and
    slightly dried up.

  3. Now, toss in crushed peanuts and roughly mix
    with a spatula.

  4. Next, with the help of a cookie scoop place 12
    round cookies on the cookie sheet at equal distance.Then, gently with fingers smoothen the sides and the top of the cookies. (do not press them hard).

  5. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and let it
    bake for 30 minutes.

  6. Once done turn off the oven and let it cool down to room temperature. Once cooled these cookies will leave the parchment paper without breaking. As they cool they become firm as well.

  7. Enjoy!!!!
