About this Recipe
By: Emma, FurFresh
I really like the idea of being able to make food for everyone to enjoy. You, partner, kids AND your dog! These cookies are of course made using human grade ingredients. You could try adding in a little honey to sweeten if sharing with kiddies!
- 1/2 cup sweet potato (kumera)
- 1 1/2 cups wholegrain quick oats
- 1/4 cup wholemeal flour
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup apple sauce (see note)
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 lightly beaten egg
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Line a cookie tray or baking sheet with baking paper (preferably waxed).
Leaving the skin on, cut the sweet potato into 3cm cubes. Boil in a pan of water for 8-10 minutes until soft or cook covered in the microwave for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a food processor or high powered blender, blitz the oats until they’re a fine powder. Add in the rest of the ingredients, including the cooked sweet potato and pulse until combined.
Place small balls of the mixture onto the tray and flatten slightly with your hand. Leave about 4cm between cookies to allow for them to spread while baking.
Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden and crispy. Allow to cool on a wire rack then serve!
Note: You can make your own apple sauce by blitzing 3 cored and peeled apples with 1 tsp of lemon juice in a blender or food processor!
