I got this recipe from a Betty Crocker Cookies Brownies & Bars booklet. They are very healthy, moist and tasty. They don't spread, so be sure to flatten them before cooking. I altered it a little bit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray cookies sheet with non-stick cooking spray (or use parchment paper).
  3. Beat sugar, sweet potatoes, margarine and egg in large bowl on medium speed until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes or until no indentation remains when touched.
  5. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.

I'm not rating this recipe because I have not tried it. The copy of this recipe I have slightly different. The copy I have does not call for flax seed meal or wheat germ. Overall this recipe sounds good. I hope to try it soon. Thanks for posting this recipe! Christine (internetnut)

The flavor of these cookies is delicious and my family loved them. For me, the texture is a bit on the heavy side, so I made try adding just a bit of baking powder next time, see if that lightens them up at all. But the flavor is really, really good.

Since I love to bake/cook healthy this recipe looked like a winner to me. I use splenda sugar and smart balance margarine as well. This is a great way to use up you left over holiday sweet potatoes!
