Yesterday my son had a day off from school and to keep him away for his obsession with iPhones and iPads I decided to keep him busy and entertained by improvising Quinoa and Sweet Potato Macaroons.  My intention was to make something that can be enjoyed in the mornings with coffee or as a snack in the afternoon.
1 Big Mashed Sweet Potato
2 Cups of Quinoa Flakes
1/2 Cup of Grated Coconut 
3/4 Coconut Milk
1/2 Coconut Oil
6 Drops of Vanilla Extract
Salt to Taste
Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
Pecans (Mashed)
Boil the sweet potatoes in little water almost like steaming them ( it keeps the sweetness better when compared to boiling) and mash them.  Add the dry ingredients in a mixer.  Combine the liquid ingredients in a bowl and slowly add them to the mixer at low speed, gradually increasing speed until it becomes a whole mixture.  Making spoonfuls, place them on a Pam sprayed pan and bake for 1 hour or until you insert a fork and comes out clean.
For a sweeter taste add powder sugar and Enjoy.
