NOTES

STORAGE: Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days on the counter.

FREEZER: You can freeze them for up to 3 month in a freezer-safe container. 

MAKE AHEAD: Roast the sweet potatoes ahead of time. While this is a super quick recipe, roasting the sweet potatoes is the most time consuming part. I roast it at 425°F for 45-50 minutes. Then allow it to cool so it’s easier to handle. This is great to do when you have other food in the oven.

ADDITIONS: Feel free to fold in chocolate, chopped nuts or fruit after you’ve mixed the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients.
