These tender Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies burst autumn flavor and are perfectly dressed in black and orange for your Halloween party.
With their lovely orange hue, black chocolate spots, and warm dose of spices, Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect dessert to serve at your Halloween party and to satisfy your fall-flavor craving all season long.
Yes, yes pumpkin is the stereotypical fall flavor choice, but sweet potatoes deserve their turn in the oven (Don't believe me? Check out Jen's crazy good looking Kale and Sweet Potato Pizza Recipe for proof.) Like pumpkin, sweet potatoes have a naturally sweet taste and add fantastic moisture to baked goods.
Unlike pumpkin, sweet potatoes are easy to use outside of the can. Sorry pumpkin, I adore you, but I hate scooping out your seeds and dealing with your fussy rind. When baking with pumpkin, I opt for the can; with sweet potatoes, I start with the real deal. A simple roasting in the oven enhances their natural sweetness and transforms them into baking material.
Sweet potatoes also offer a stealthy-healthy bonus: they are high in moisture, low on fat, and (duh) sweet. For an extra health boost, the base of Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies is a sneaky blend of whole wheat flour and all purpose flour, but you can keep that secret to yourself.
And the dose of chocolate chips? It’s just the right thing to do.
Celebrate Halloween with Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies for their festive orange and black color, then eat them all fall long for their warm autumn flavors!
