Cookie-A-Day: Day 2- Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

For this cookie, I was inspired by Tina of Carrots’n’Cake.  She made Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  I knew once I read that post that I had to make them.  I just happened to have a can of sweet potato puree on hand, so off I went!  I made a few alterations to make the recipe gluten-free.  My changes are below:

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (Used Bob’s Red Mill GF Oats)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

These cookies were awesome!  They aren’t as sweet as a typical oatmeal raisin cookie, but that is fine.  They are chewy & I love the different textures going on. 


A great cookie to offer at Christmas time as a healthier choice.  I went ahead & froze most of these to test out how they freeze.  The result?  They don’t only freeze well, but they are pretty darn good when frozen, too!

  1. Thank you for commenting on my blog! I am so happy to have found yours. I need more gf ideas! I have a lot to learn about adapting recipes. I saw Tina’s cookies too and was disappointed I couldn’t have them. Now I’m not! I only have regular oats right now…I hate that the gf ones are so expensive, but I suppose I need to make that change. Ugh!

    I’ll be reading!

    • I hate how $$ the oats are too, but I have started buying them on Amazon or in bulk and it ends up a little cheaper. I put your blog on my Google reader, so I am looking forward to reading more!

  2. Yum! I bet these cookies would make a great pre-workout treat 🙂
