Sweet Potato Cookies or Cupcakes or Cake

leftover sweet potatoes (3-6 baked, skins on) - or baked pumpkin 
about a stick of butter, melted is easier
about 4 T coconut oil
teaspoon cinnamon
some nutmeg (about a teaspoon or half of one)
up to a teaspoon of ground cardamom
about 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
about 1/2 t sea salt
1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans (sprouted would also work)
1/2 cup homemade flour (sprouted and dried and ground buckwheat or wheat)-- or whatever flour you like to use- up to 2 cups (more makes them more like cookies and less like pie)
4 shredded carrots (did these 1st in food processor, then switched blade)
2-5 eggs (more makes them less like cookies and more like pie)\
scant teaspoon baking soda
2 bananas

I think that's everything- these are very forgiving...

Bake at 325 for 25 min in cupcake cups or as cookies or an hour in a round cake pan

The icing we did was blended blueberries and bananas (2 bananas and 1/2 cup blueberries). Could also add 1/2 cup soaked cashews but we were impatient and didn't have any made.
