With some of us starting off the new year on a new diet, or simply vowing to eat healthier then you probably don’t want to read a post about cookies. However, these cookies are much different from the ones that became a regular occurrence over the holidays. At least for me they did. These sweet potato cookies are, dare I say healthy, as they’re full of good for you ingredients.

The last breakfast cookie I made was such a hit, both with my family and on the blog,  I wanted to try my hand at creating another one. Only 6 ingredients are needed for these sweet potato cookies to come about, most of which you probably already have on hand.

These cookies are vegan, gluten-free and naturally sweetened thanks to the sweet potatoes and maple syrup.  They’re a quick and easy way  to get in some essential vitamins and nutrients. Not only are they healthy enough for breakfast but they’re perfect for a pre or post workout snack.
