My poor little guy has multiple allergies which make shopping for a decent snack difficult. Our biggest obsticle seems to be corn….I never before realized before how much corn is in baby foods! (Although there is so much corn in all foods I shouldn’t be surprised!) So his mama has come up with a snack for him and I wanted to share it with everyone in case you are having the same trouble I am!

This recipe is easy to make and it makes a large batch so you have enough snacks to get you through the week.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. If you haven’t already, cook and mash your sweet potato. For 1 c. you will need about one large sweet potato.
  2. Add the other ingredients to the mashed sweet potato and mix well.
  3. If your mixture seems dry, add a little more water to bring it to the right consistency.
  4. Cut into fun shapes with mini cookie cutters.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Then flip and bake another 5 minutes.
  6. Let them cool before serving, store in an airtight bag or container.

.

The mini shapes are perfect for little hands to grab and munch on. If you want them more crunchy for your little, just cook them a bit longer. Since my guy is still quite young he likes them a little softer.

Do you make snacks for your littles?

Hi! new to your site and gluten-free for that matter… I was wondering, I don’t have any of this flour but I do have gluten-free Bisquick. Do you think that would work as a replacement?? thanks in advance for your help!

Could I use regular or possibly whole wheat flour? Or I even have coconut flour, but am really new to it. Would that work?

I would think you could try it with any of those and it would work just fine.

I made these today using regular unbleached flour. I did have to add about a tablespoon of water in addition to the recommended amount. About half of them stuck to the pan after the first five minutes, so I recommend using parchament paper or greasing before baking.

Also, they had more of a cookie texture than a cracker texture…maybe I will try to bake the next batch longer to make it more cracker-like. But, the cookie texture was not bad. I think I may call them “Sweet Potato Cookies” to my kids. I am sure they will be gobbling them up at the sound of the word “cookies”. Ha.

Mine turned out much oranger than yours, but they were okay. One batch made about 34 when I rolled out to 1/4 inch and used a 2″ cookie cutter. I think we’ll have to double or triple it next time. Between all the kids, my husband, and myself, they will probably only last a day or two! : )

Thanks for the healthy snack recipe!
