Vegan Sweet Potato, Chocolate and Maple Cookies
9 portions

Ingredients

  • 400g sweet potato
  • 50ml pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)
  • 120g gluten-free oat flour
  • 100g dairy-free dark chocolate pieces
  • 50ml coconut oil
  • A pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Method

  1. Begin by peeling the sweet potato and chopping it into small pieces and add to a pan with boiling hot water. Bring to the boil until the sweet potato is soft throughout.
  2. Preheat the oven at 180C/350F. Place the sweet potato directly into a food processor and blitz to mush.
  3. Add the oat flour, maple syrup and coconut oil and blitz to allow all of the ingredients to combine together.
  4. Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and add the chocolate pieces and the salt, then combine together.
  5. Form the cookies by rolling them into a ball and press into a flat circular shape, then place all of the cookies on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
  6. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes, these cookies are extremely soft in the centre therefore allow them to cool down before removing from the tray.

These vegan sweet potato cookies from food blogger The Healthy Beard are a healthy take on a favourite sweet treat, while amber maple syrup adds a rich flavour to complement the dairy-free dark chocolate.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
