Notes

I came up with these one day when I was craving chocolate chip cookies, but didn't want to go buy some garbage gluten free things from the grocery store. I had a giant "walrus" sweet potato sitting there, and I thought "yeah, I can make cookies from that!" So now whenever I'm thinking of making this recipe, I have to look for a giant sweet potato that looks like a walrus!
