After making my sweet potato quick bread, I knew I couldn't stop there. I needed to make something else yummy with my sweet potato puree. Sweet potatoes make things taste so yummy, you forget your even eating a veggie. I decided that some sweet, delicious cookies were going to be in my near future. I took my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and revamped it a bit to accommodate my yummy puree. These cookies came out wonderful....almost too wonderful if you know what I mean. They may or may not have been eaten in less than two days. I know gluttons we are, but they were so dang yummy. So whether you eat them all,share with friends, or freeze half. Whip up some yummy cookies today. Oh and share with that family of yours.....then you won't eat the whole I may or may not have done. Just saying...:)

Sweet Potato Cookies

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine or butter
1 egg
1 cup sweet potato puree*
1 ½ tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
¼ cup ground flax seed
¼ cup ground bran

Place sugars and butter in a bowl and blend. Mix until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Gradually add puree and mix until combined. Add dry ingredients and mix. Add chocolate chips and mix until combined. Bake at 350' for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

-makes about 54 cookies

* You can make your sweet potato puree ahead of time and freeze in freezer safe containers or baggies. You can also use any leftover sweet potatos you may have as well. Just throw your cooked sweet potatoes into a blender/food processor and blend until smooth. Add water to thin out your puree if needed. This is a great and sneaky way to get more veggies into you and your family's diet.

Enjoy Lovelies!

I think I hit the record for using the word "yummy" like a bazillion times in a post. Your welcome!

  1. These sound great - I just made sweet potato casserole and was impressed by the sweetness, I can only imagine cookies must be delightful!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. i'm definitely going to try these! thanks for the recipe! also did you get my email i sent about vinyl? we bought a new front door so i need another welcome. thanks!

    1. I am so sorry about that. I kept meaning to email you back. Right now I haven't been selling vinyl, since I don't have a lot of time to cut and send it. Sorry about that.

    2. no worries just let me know when/if you do start back up.

  3. Why do you use white instead of whole wheat pastry flour?

    And, as a homeschooling mom, you would surely correct your children if they used "your" when they should have written "you're". So you'll want to fix this blog entry before they read it.

    1. Hi Marcia;) I use white flour, since it fits into my budget. I can also easily buy it in bulk. I do buy whole wheat flour as well and throw that into my recipes. About the typo...alll I can do is laugh;) I am not perfect... Especially with spelling. I do not stress perfection with my children, but hard work and determination to always do their best. I know that if my children read this post they would see the love I put into my writing. They know how important it is to help others. They know that Blissful and Domestic helps people and they love that, so I don't worry to much about little typos. Thank you so much though for reading. Let me know if you try out the recipe. I love hearing from my lovely readers;)

  4. Your personality is so cute and genuine! Keep doing what you're doing, Hun!

  5. Hi Danielle! Thank you for this great recipe, I love sweet potato pie and cookies, so making sweet potato cookies sounds fantastic!! I subscribe to your blog and enjoy reading it so much. I especially enjoyed reading about your kitchen and how you store things. It's genius!! p.s. I hope to move to henderson in the next year! *crossing fingers* i'm accepted to school there, and i was thrilled to find out through your blog that there's a food coop program there! yay!! :) thanks so so much, looking forward to reading more of your blog!

    1. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Keep me posted:>

  6. Hey I don't have bran you think I could substitute oatmeal? Don't have flax seeds either.... Any substitute ideas for that thanks

    1. hmm....I would think oats would work fine. Just make sure they are quick oats.

  7. Hi! How much dough do you use for each cookie? Do you drop them by the Tablespoon full?
