My sister has 2 very beautiful daughters who have some very big sweet teeth. She only feeds them the best foods and watches what they eat. I wanted to make something that the girls could appreciate and that my sister wouldn’t feel guilty about feeding them. This recipe was a huge success! The fact that it doesn’t require baking or your entire cupboard to emptied, makes it even better!
3 cups quick oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dates
2/3 cup canned sweet potato with no added sugar
4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
optional: 1 cup mini chocolate chips or nuts
Place 1/2 cup of the quick oats in the food processor and turn on high until a powder forms. To this, add the dates and process until smooth.
Mix this into a large bowl with the remaining ingredients. Once fully incorporated, form into balls or roll the mixture out and use cookie cutters to make different shapes. Allow it to firm up in the regrigerator for an hour or so.
1 package of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup honey
Mix together the ingredients and frost the cookies.
