Hollaaaaa! I made brown butter. For the first time ever. People were all like “oh, it’s so nutty and delicious! Brown butter this, brown butter that, brown butter ALL THE THINGS!” And I was just standing there on the sidelines like “ok dude, chill with the brown butter.”

I get it now though and I’m hopping on that train. You know, 3 years late or whatever.

So I had this pot of brown butter and yeah, some of it made it’s way into my mouth via spoon (like you wouldn’t do the same) but I still filled an entire mason jar up with the rest of it.

So…we have cookies.

    I definitely just posted browned butter chocolate chip cookies too! However, I love the idea of inviting sweet potatoes to the party….sounds yummy Gina!

    These cookies look amazing, I would have never thought of adding sweet potato to cookies and I’m so curious to try them out!

    These sound delicious…and they are, obviously, good for you because they have sweet potatoes in them, right!? ;)

    So I’ve never, ever eaten browned butter. Every time I see a recipe that calls for it, I am instantly more attracted to it–maybe because I’ve never had it so it is SO appealing, or maybe because I just know how good it must be. Anyway, combining it with sweet potatoes and chocolate? Even more sold.

    this sounds like a great healthy cookie recipe!

  12. 13

    I love the sweet potato and coconut you’ve got going on in these cookies, they look delicious!

    I am sorry but theses did not work for us. They were really wet and had no sweetness:(. I was attracted to them because there was not sugar/etc. but did you use more syrup or anything else?:(

      Running to the Kitchen says:

      Hmm…did you make any substitutions? The only “sugar” in these is the maple syrup. They’re definitely not a super sweet cookie but between the sweet potato, vanilla and bit of maple syrup, they should taste “sweet enough” for a relatively healthy cookie. On the wetness, I’m not sure…did you measure the cooked sweet potato? Too much of that could definitely make them too wet.

        I didn’t make any substitutions, but I’m thinking that maybe with a bit more maple syrup or even brown sugar (though I don’t want to add it – I like that it isn’t in the recipe!) may be just the ticket. I am going to try them again since they look really unique and I want them to work for us. Thanks for the reply! And btw we love your pumpkin/oatmeal pancakes:).

    These look great. :)

    I’m confused on the browned butter. Do we need 3TBS or a whole stick? The ingredient list says 3T, but the note on how to brown the butter says 1 whole stick. Which amount is it?

      Running to the Kitchen says:

      sorry for the confusion, you just need 3 tablespoons for this recipe. the note was explaining how to make brown butter and I said 1 stick in that assuming you would have leftover butter for another use.
