  • ½ cup (50g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (220g) cooked, mashed sweet potatoes, about 1 medium potato
  • ½ cup (70g) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the oats to the food processor/blender first. Then add the rest of the ingredients except for chia seeds. 
  • Blend until smooth. If going to enjoy as a dip, spread, or sauce then add liquid of choice (water, milk, breastmilk) etc. to thin out the batter to desired consistency.
  • Stir in chia seeds. Combine well.
  • Using a mini ice cream scooper or a spoon, transfer the batter to a lined or greased baking sheet. You'll end up with 8-9 cookies.
  • Wet your fingertips a little bit and gently push down the batter to flatten slightly. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Let it cool completely.


  • The batter is pretty thick and sticky. So when it comes time to flatten the cookies slightly, wet your fingertips a little bit (not too much!).
  • Be careful not to overcook. They just need to spend a little time in the oven to firm up.
  • These cookies are not very sweet but plenty sweet for babies, who have more tastebuds than us adults. If you'd like a little extra hint of sweetness, you can add maple syrup, banana, or unsweetened applesauce.
  • Serving suggestions: top with nut or seed butters, tahini, melted butter, etc. for extra protein and/or healthy fat
  • Store in an airtight container for 1-2 days or in the fridge for up to a week. Or you can freeze for up to 3 months.
