Sweet Potato Bran Cookies

1 1/2 cups of bran cereal
1 cup milk
I egg
1 cup steamed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup honey (I didn't add any)
3 tbsp. lemon juice
grated rind from 2 large oranges (I used both lemons and oranges)
3/4 cups of raisins
1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda

In a large bowl, pour milk onto cereal and let stand.  Mash enough sweet potato with lemon juice to measure 1 cup.
Add potato to the milk and cereal, along with a beaten egg, honey, orange rind and raisins.  Mix well.
In a smaller bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and soda.
Mix together with the wet ingredients.
Drop by tablespoon full on cookie pan. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees F. for approximately 25 minutes.

These can also be made in muffins.  Divide into a greased muffin pan for 12.
