Protein Sweet Potato Cookies

Protein Sweet Potato Cookies

Sweet potato cookies are naturally sweet, so you can add less sugar. Since I want them to be healthy, I use almond butter, whole wheat flour, and oat flour. In order to make them a balanced snack, I add protein powder. And, I make them with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to give them a spicy flavor. Incidentally, they smell good while they’re baking!
