I found a recipe for these recently and tried them after a race, they were absolutely phenomenal and lasted less than 24 hours in our house! They have the consistency of regular cookies so we couldn't even tell we were eating sweet potatoes! These are definitely a healthy treat after a tough training session. The recipe below makes 12 cookies.
