Fresh rosemary and root vegetable puree create this high fiber snack. Enjoy our simple baked Sweet Potato Crackers all week long.

Sweet potatoes are a delicious and healthy vegetable. They are a great source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C and a wide variety of other vitamins and minerals. This versatile root veggie is a great addition to salads, baked goods, pasta and more. We decided to take this beloved vegetable and turn it into a crunchy cracker!

Get started by creating your sweet potato puree. Peel cooked sweet potatoes and puree in a blender or food processor. In a bowl, combine sweet potato puree, whole wheat flour, baking powder, sugar and margarine. Using a mixer, mix the batter until it becomes dough. Fold fresh minced rosemary into the dough, cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Lightly flour a hard surface and roll the dough until it is about 1⁄8-inch thick. Cut out your crackers using small cookie cutters or by cutting them into small squares. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt and bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes until the bottoms are slightly browned. Turn the crackers once and continue baking until they are crispy. Once finished baking, remove your crackers from the oven and cool them on a wire rack. Enjoy your sweet and salty snack!
