• Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    November 18, 2009

    I’m feeling a little burnt-out this evening, so I’ve decided to take the night off from blogging. All I really want to do is put on my PJs, watch a movie, and cuddle with my husband and puppy on the couch. I need to a night to recharge, ya know?

    I did, however, muster up the energy to do some baking earlier tonight. ;-)

    These cookies sort of taste like your regular oatmeal raisin cookies, but sooooo much better! :mrgreen:

    I’ve already eaten 4 of these babies! They’re FANTASTIC! Firm on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside with a subtle sweet potato flavor and bites of coconut and raisins throughout. I love ‘em! Plus, it’s fun to sneak veggies into my desserts! I might just need to eat a 5th one! ;-)

    Enjoy the night! I’m unplugging.

    I love this idea! I actually have a blog about creating every kind of recipe that contains sweet potatoes and I can’t wait to try this!
