Super healthy yet delicious Sweet Potato Cookies with no added sugar and butter! Great for BLW and toddlers!
No kneading sweet potato cookies!
I have a 3 years old toddler and a 7 months BLW baby who seem to be hungry all the times. To avoid giving them too much commercial foods with hidden ingredients, I always stock up some homemade cookies in the pantry for their convenient. Sometimes I eat it too!!
Sweet potato cookies!! Healthy yet delicious to eat, both of my boys love it! This cookies is free from sugar, the sweetness comes from the sweet potato and a secret ingredient, Banana. With the combination of the 2, this cookies create a natural sweetener, soft and chewy texture that are suitable for baby from 7 months and older.
Making cookies is always a fun activity. You can ask your child to help with shaping the cookies, a good way to improve fine motor skills. However, after cleaning could be a pain 😂 This recipe can make more than a dozen of cookies, I make around 17 with half small and half medium size. The cookies can last up to 3 days in a airtight container. It is best to store in the fridge if you live in a warmer country. You can always make a batch ahead and stock up in the freezer for emergency, this way it will stay for a good 3 months. Just remember to store it properly with an airtight container or seal bag.
