Toddler Friendly Gluten Free Sweet Potato Wraps

This post may be titled Toddler Friendly, but let me assure you, toddler or not, these Toddler Friendly Gluten Free Sweet Potato Wraps are a great snack for all ages! They just so happen to also be the perfect size for the youngins and a great way to sneak a vegetable into their daily snack. Plus, they pair perfectly with a little cheese or peanut butter, so your kiddo is not only getting a dose of vegetables, but also a little protein!

Living with an energetic and active two-year old boy, I am forever hearing “Mommy, I want a snack”. He has such a healthy appetite and I’m always on the hunt for things that will satisfy that hunger, while fueling his body with good nutrition. And of course we all know toddlers, and kids in general, can be picky. While he’s a good eater, Brighton is no exception and he LOVED these sweet potato wraps.

However, if we’re honest, these Gluten Free Sweet Potato Wraps only lasted a couple of days and little man wasn’t the only one snacking on them. Josh didn’t even get a sample, Brighton and I pretty well devoured them!

These Toddler Friendly Gluten Free Sweet Potato Wraps are a great healthy snack and so easy to make with only three ingredients!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sweet potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed
  • 1 cup oat flout + extra for dusting {certified gluten-free if necessary}
  • 1 tsp sea salt
Instructions
  1. Peel sweet potato and dice into small pieces. Place in pot with just enough water to cover, bring to a boil and cook 8-10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Drain water and set aside to cool for a few minutes. Add to cutting board and mash with a fork or blend in food processor if needed.
  3. Add whole oats to high-speed food processor or NutriBullet and process to a fine flour-like consistency. Add oat flour, mashed sweet potatoes, and sea salt to medium bowl and mix to form a sticky dough. Sprinkle bread board or clean surface with additional oat flour and divide dough into 8 equal pieces.
  4. Make sure work surface is still coated with oat flour, then roll each piece into a round ball and use a rolling-pin to roll into a thin round tortilla shape - approximately 6-8" in diameter.
  5. Heat skillet over medium heat, then cook wraps one at a time for approximately one minute on each side or until cooked.
  6. Serve with butter, cheese or peanut butter.
