Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup cooked plain mashed sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium chicken or beef broth (or water)
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 Granny Smith apple peeled, cored and grated
Method

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together sweet potatoes and broth. Add flour, cornmeal, mint and apples and stir until combined. Knead the dough a few times until it holds together. Roll out half of the dough on a generously floured surface until about 1/4-inch thick. Use (2- to 4-inch) cookie cutters to cut out treats. Transfer to baking sheets; reroll and cut the remaining dough.

Bake until dried and just slightly golden on the bottoms, 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the oven, leave oven door ajar and let the treats cool and dry out in the oven for 1 to 2 hours. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
