When you change a recipe to make it healthier, there are little tricks we can do. In this case, instead of using baked potatoes, these sweet potatoes are roasted in the oven. In this way your natural sweet is more concentrated, not needing to add as many sweeteners. The almond flour leaves them with an even richer flavor and the rice flour helps activate the flavors. These sweet potato cookies will be your new favorite!
