Sweet potatoes have become a staple in our Paleo kitchen. They are easy to grab, a great recovery food from a hard workout, and loaded with healthy carbs.
- Have massive amounts of beta-carotene, an important antioxidant
- Contain twice the amount of fiber as white potatoes
- Have high levels of B6 and Potassium
- A potent source of manganese (helps stabilize blood glucose levels)
- Are rich in vitamin C and E
- Contain iron, magnesium, and vitamin D
Eating Paleo can be challenging when you are on-the-go, or when you just had an intense workout…but it’s not impossible. It takes a little planning ahead. I love to make these delicious breakfast cookies for times when I’m out-and-about, or I need to grab a quick snack or breakfast before running out the door.
The original recipe from The Preppy Paleo uses pumpkin, which is delicious! But, I wanted to throw in my favorite tuber and see if it still came out as amazing as always…and it did! I make 2-3 batches at a time because we just love them and the kids eat them too. I feel good providing a healthy snack for their growing bodies.
I want to send out a BIG THANK YOU to The Preppy Paleo for allowing me to share this with my readers!
