What is Ube? (Pronounced oo-bae)
It's a purple sweet potato that originated from the Philippines and traditionally used to make desserts. You can get them at your local asian supermarket or swap it out for a regular sweet potato-- you just won't get the beautiful purple hue!
Vegan Ube Cookie Cups
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
- 2x Mylk Labs Coconut & Cinnamon Oatmeal Cup (15% off with code RKML15 - valid until 1/27)
- 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp date or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, plus more to grease the pan
- 3 tbsp almond milk
- 1/2 cup steamed & pureed ube, or sub regular sweet potato
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup date or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Grease a mini muffin tin with coconut oil and set aside.
- In a food processor blend all the ingredients for the cookie crust until it starts forming a dough. This will take a minute or two.
- With a mini ice cream scooper, measure out the cookie dough into each of the muffin tins and press up the sides making a cookie cup.
- Wash out the food processor and place all the ube filling ingredients in the processor and blend until smooth.
- Spoon the filling into the cookie cups.
- Bake for 15 minutes until the ube is set and the crust is golden.
Note: You may need to add more almond milk depending on how absorbent your protein powder is. If it’s still crumbly, add 1 tbsp of almond milk at a time until it comes together.
