Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies is my recipe of the day with the blogging  group Baking Bloggers. We join hands monthly  and  post recipes on a similar topic that all are baked. The  recipes can be sweet or savory—> as long as we get it into the oven.

Sweet Potato Oatmeal Cookies

We vote on the topic to be made. This  month we are baking  potato recipes of all types.

Turns out  I  had an extra sweet potato  in  the fridge, so  it  found its way into some cookie dough. It’s not such a stretch really. Many autumn cookie recipes  will  use  pumpkin.  And sweet potato is very  similar.

I really like the flavor these produced. As  ingredients go, the  sweet potato  fit right into the profile. I’m sure I will be making  these  many times  over  the years.

And it encourages me to find even more things to do with the  humble sweet potato.
