This double-duty treat may look like a cookie, but its springy texture is textbook cake. Sweet potato purée keeps each bite soft and chewy, while iron-rich molasses adds a deeper layer of flavour, making this one smart cookie recipe. A grab-and-go snack, they can also slip nicely into a lunch box for school—if they don’t disappear the night before.

Note from Ricardo

Cooking the sweet potato in the microwave oven before adding it to the recipe is a great time-saving shortcut. The sweet potatoes make these cookies extra tender —guaranteeing these treats stay super-soft— and they’re full of good-for-you nutrients. The kids won’t even realize they’re having their sweets and vegetables, too!
