Sweetpotato Oatmeal Cookies


Sweetpotato Oatmeal Cookies

1-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats 

1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour 

1/2 tsp baking soda 

1/4 tsp baking powder 

2 tsp ground cinnamon 

1/4 tsp salt 

1 cup mashed cooked California Sweetpotato 

4 Tbsp unsalted stick butter-margarine blend, melted 

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 

1 large egg 

1 tsp vanilla extract 

1/3 cup raisins 

1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted 

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips 

Makes: 20 cookies


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • In medium mixing bowl, wish together oats, flour, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, combine sweetpotato, butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Mix to combine. Stir dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir just until blended. Gently stir in raisins, nuts, and chocolate chips.

  • Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 2 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets. Flatten cookies with hand or back of large spoon. Bake cookies until golden brown and just set, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack and let cool completely.
