Microwave potatoes until a fork glides in and out easily- approx 8-10 minutes
Let cool completely to room temperature
In a food processer add cooked potatoes, ¼ cup of the oats, dates, vanilla, salt, and baking soda and egg.
Process until smooth
Transfer to bowl and add chocolate chips
Spray cookie sheet with olive oil spray or Pam
Place spoonful size dallops on to pan- approx 2 inches apart
You should get about 14 cookies
Bake- sart checking cookies for doneness at around 10 minutes. Mine took about 12 to be perfect!
For Version 2- the more "cookie" like version- sweeter and a bit sturdier
Simply add ¼ cup flour and ¼ cup loosely packed brown sugar to the batter. This will change the per cookie calorie count to 75 calories. Not too shabby still
Personally, my favorite version is with a ¼ cup of brown sugar, but no flour. It's a sweeter cookie, without the calories of the flour, and I like the nice soft texture! This version is 67 calories per cookie!
