Sweet Potato Bars – Gluten/Dairy/Egg-FREE!

This recipe was actually attached to the bag of organic sweet potatoes I bought from Costco.  We don’t do a lot of sweet potatoes, but I thought I’d get some to test out on our spiralizer for sweet potato chips.  I wasn’t thinking – as with most things from Costco, their sweet potatoes were the size of submarines!  Way too big for the spiralizer – so save yourself the time and don’t try it.  But – this recipe was a definite winner and used up the scraps from my botched sweet potato chip attempt.

 

Sweet Potato Bars (I have made a few modifications to the original recipe)

  • 2 sweet potatoes (enough for 1 1/2 cups cooked and mashed)
  • 1 cup chick peas
  • 3 T maple syrup
  • 1 T honey
  • 2 T coconut oil, melted
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 1 t cinnamon
  •  1/8 t salt
  • 1 cup oats

Icing: 1 T cream cheese + 2 T maple syrup

Puree potatoes, chickpeas, syrup and honey, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.  Stir in oats.  Grease 8×8 square glass pan and bake at 350 25-30 minutes until firm and slightly golden at edges.  COOL completely.  For icing, stir together cream cheese and maple syrup and drizzle over cooled bars.  Stir in refrigerator.
