Sweet Potato Date Cookies Print 15 LikeDislike By Sarah I love sweet potatoes. Seriously, they are so versatile, easy to digest and packed full of nutrients. From fries, to soups, to purees, and now to cookies, sweet potatoes can do it all!I do my best to create desserts that can double as a healthy snack for me and my family. I have a slight sweet tooth that always seems to hit around 10 a.m., and a couple kiddos that tend to hit me up for a sweet snack around the same time. I love how nutritious these are, especially from the molasses!
