Cuisine: raw food, raw vegan, gluten-free
Serves: 18 treats
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups roughly chopped sweet potatoes (about 2 small sweet potatoes)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup peanut butter*
  • 1-2 cups coconut flour or other grain-free flour of your choice (adjust the amount depending on the flour you are using)**
Instructions
  1. Roughly chop the sweet potatoes and add it into the food processor along with the shredded coconut. Blend until everything becomes a fine mince. Scrape the sides of the food processor in between blending.
  2. Add in the peanut butter and blend.
  3. Once it becomes a thick paste, add in the coconut flour or the flour or your choice. Blend until it forms a dough about the firmness of your earlobe. The amount of flour needed will vary depending on the flour you use.
  4. Lay down the silicone sheet for the dehydrator or some parchment paper. Roll out the dough on the silicone sheet into ¼" thickness.
  5. Use a cookie cutter to cut it into your desired shapes. You can also roll the dough into round small cookies by hand.
If you are using a dehydrator:
  1. Line the dehydrator tray with a mesh sheet. Lay the treats down and dry at 115℉(46℃) for 24 hours until completely dry. After a few hours of drying, flip the treats upside down for even drying.
  2. Once they are completely dry, store them in an air-tight container.
If you are using an oven:
  1. Preheat the oven at 350℉ (175℃).
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lay the treats down. Bake for 25-30 mins.
  3. Let it cool completely and store them in an air-tight container.
Notes
*Pick the cleanest peanut butter you can find. Ideally, ingredients should only be roasted peanuts.

**The amount of flour needed will vary depending on the dryness of the flour you are using. If you are using commercial coconut flour, use 1 cup of coconut flour.
