These sweet potato coconut oat cookies are made with just 4 ingredients: coconut, oats, sweet potato and sweetener.

They’re fantastic as a healthy but satisfying snack, breakfast on-the-go or to fuel up before a tough workout. With healthy carbs from oats and sweet potato, you can also enjoy them post-workout to kickstart the recovery process. Whenever you decide to eat them, you’ll love the hearty texture, subtle sweetness and delicious coconut flavour of these healthy treats.

For a 4-ingredient, healthy cookie, they are really, really good, like surprisingly addictive. The texture is awesome and for 125 calories each they’re hearty, satisfying and surprisingly filling. You can really taste the coconut too. I recommend using a good quality, organic, fine unsweetened coconut for best results. I like this brand. I’ve made them with cheaper coconut and you just don’t get the same coconut flavour.
