Sweet Potato Blondie Bars
With trick-or-treating looking a little different this year, you may be in the mood to make the kiddos a special dessert. These blondie bars are perfect: delicious, made with healthy ingredients and they sneak in some vegetables too!
1/3 cup pureed or mashed sweet potato
1/4 cup almond butter
1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 can)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup, agave or honey
1/4 cup flour (white, oat, spelt, almond, etc)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
optional 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Line or grease an 8 x 8 pan.
Drain and rinse the beans well and then process all the ingredients in a food processor or blender (except chocolate chips) until completely smooth.
Stir in chips
Spread batter into pan, press a few chocolate chips on top and bake on center rack for 28 minutes.
Bars will be warm & gooey when you take them out but firm up as they cool.
Store in fridge for best freshness.
