I made my little man peanut butter sweet potato protein cookies, and I think the big smile on his face, and empty plate means he liked them. Kid tested, Fix approved!

What You Need:

  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes (Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until soft)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 Tablespoons of natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup Beachbody Performance Line Vanilla Dream recovery formula * Sub ISO Pure Vanilla Protein Powder until BB Performance Line hits the shelves (Summer 2015)
  • 3 teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning.
  1. Mix all ingredients together in in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer or in a food processor.
  2. Scoop out a tap and mold into a small ball. Flatten slightly with a fork.  Place the cookies on a cookie sheet that has a light spray of coconut or olive oil.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  4. Makes approximately 24 cookies.

    Just put my cookie concoction in the oven-saw this recipe late at night & since I’m too impatient to wait & get the right ingredients figured I’d substitute w/what I had on hand-reg.peanut butter & vanilla maca protein powder. Will report my results once they finish baking! And to be fair will also post the comparison to the “correct” recipe-once I’m able to acquire those items at a normal time of day lol;)

    Made a batch tonight. 24 cookies…the recipe was right on! Though, my batter was really runny…like someone previously mentioned. How can I get the batter thicker? More protein powder? Less egg?

    But, they were still DELICIOUS!!!! Will make them again!

  • Mellissa

    My batter was runny as well and couldn’t form a ball for the cookies. I threw everything in a loaf pan and it made a sweet potato bread pudding ..was very yummy though. Maybe I didn’t put enough sweet potato in the batter to firm things up?!

  • Daphne

    These were delicious but mine did not turn out as pretty. The dough was runny and I was unable to form a ball. Instead they resembled small pancakes. What did I do wrong?

  • DeDe

    what can be substituted for vanilla proteins and how do we cook it

  • Sarah

    What if you don’t have any protein powder? Can you omit that?

    • Autumn

      It’s best not to for this recipe, but you could.

  • Michelle Stahl

    Are the sweet potatoes cooked before baking? Can I use vanilla shakeology?

    • Autumn Calabrese

      Yes the sweet potatoes are cooked before making the cookie dough. I wrap them in tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes or until soft. I don’t recommend using Shakeology for this, you are not supposed to cook Shakeology as it changes the adaptogens in it.

  • Jennifer

    I’m pretty sure you cook the sweet potato first. Either steam or bake.

  • Amanda

    So was I supposed to cook the potato first? I just made them and I can taste the buts if sweet potato

  • nina

    What is “powder until BB line hits shelves”?? Do the sweet potatoes need to be baked? boiled? mashed?

    • Autumn Calabrese

      Yes the potatoes need to be cooked, I bake mine. 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. You can use another protein powder, I used to use Iso Pure until I got my hands on the BB performance line.

  • Lori

    I’m taking it the sweet potatoes need to cooked first????

  • Meagan

  • ElaineUnica

    These look amazing! I’ve already done my grocery shopping…but I may need to go back out for some sweet potatoes! A treat that’s not a swap? HEAVEN!

    You can’t heat Shakeology so you can’t use it for this recipe. Heat Sgakeology breaks down the superfoods! 🙂
