Fun Cookie Recipes

*Pecan Cookie balls

Cookie Balls - but would make good breakfast bars

2C rolled oats
1 large apple (finely diced)
3/4 C raisins
1C nut butter
1/4lb whole pecans
1/2 stick butter
1/2C carob chips (optional)
2 eggs
1C water
1/2 tsp Stevia powder concentrate.

How to Prepare:
Combine rolled oats, eggs, water and butter. Stir in nut butter and then other ingredients except pecans. Form into balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Place a pecan on top of each ball. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

*Sweet potato Cookies

1 large sweet potato (bake covered in tin foil in oven/on bbq until soft, discard the skin)
1 medium carrot (peeled and grated)
1 handful of raisins or cranberries
1 piece of finely chopped candied ginger (optional)
sprinkle of salt
1/4 cup soaked flax seeds
1 egg yolk
dash cinnamon

Combine all ingredients and spoon onto non-stick cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until desired consistency is reached. Sometimes I'll take a couple out and eat them soft and bake the rest for a little longer. These make great granola bar replacements and can really hit the spot as an afternoon snack. Great for work days too!
