Description

These sweet potato energy squares are a chewy delight loaded with nuts, coconut, dates and warm spices! Perfect for breakfast on the go or a snack.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Mashed Sweet Potato, From About 1 Cooked Sweet Potato
  • 12 whole Pitted Dates
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 cup Slivered Almonds
  • ¼ cups Pumpkin Seeds
  • ¼ cups Shredded Coconut
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Preparation

To cook the sweet potato, just pierce it all over with a fork and put it on a microwave safe plate. Microwave it for 5 minutes or until tender. Let it cool enough to handle, then cut it in half and scoop the filling right out of the skin. Measure out the 1/2 cup from it and store any leftovers.

Set up a food processor and combine the sweet potato with all of the remaining ingredients. Pulse it together until you have a mixture that is fine but still has some texture.

Line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment to have a little hanging over the edge and press the mixture really firmly into it so that it sticks together well. Refrigerate the tray for at least 3 hours or up to overnight.

When it is done chilling, lift the firmed up mixture out of the tray and cut it into 9 squares by making two equal cuts both horizontally and vertically. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for a few days! Enjoy!
