sweet potato chocolate chip cookies ~gluten free~

They’re here…the terrible twos.

The past few weeks we’ve seen glimpses of them, but I think it’s safe to say they are unpacking their bags and moving in.  And may I add, a few months too early..fun times, fun times.

After a day of constantly being told “no” and having to deal with the dead weight drop to the floor shenanigans, I needed to end the day on a sweet note.  So, I baked cookies.

These are called cookies however, they are mainly sweet potatoes and almond butter, two superfoods in my book!  Therefore, I’m considering these medicinal!
