Eggless Sweet Potato & Raisin Cookies

Its been a while i wanted to make some biscuits or cake with sweet potatoes, since i had some leftover cooked sweet potatoes sitting sadly in my fridge, i simply mashed them and tried making this great looking cookies with whole wheat flour and raisins..For my surprise,this cookies turned out super prefect,absolutely addictive and quite fabulous..They tastes super delicious when served along with a cup of hot tea..Seriously none at home find out the 'secret ingredient' and they just enjoyed munching them for their snacks, yep everyone at home loved these super healthy cookies.


1cup Whole wheat flour
1/2cup Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4cup Mashed sweet potato
2tbsp Raisins
1/2tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Cardamom powder (coarsely powdered)
1/2 cup Butter (room temperature)
Milk as per need

Pre heat the oven to 350 F..Mix the flour, sugar, salt,baking powder, raisins and cardamom powder well with ur fingers in a bowl.

Add the butter and mashed sweet potato to the flour mixture,mix well, finally sprinkle enough milk to make a soft dough.Divide the dough into about 15-20 equal parts and make them into balls and flat each balls..

Place the flattened balls over a baking sheet leaving some space between each cookies...Bake the cookies for about 15-20 minutes or until cookies are lightly gold brown.

Let the cookies cool down for two to three minutes before taking them off the cookie sheet.

Enjoy with coffee or tea..
