Healthy Sweet Potato Bars With Oatmeal Whole Wheat Cookie Crust

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Cookie Jarvis

You will not miss the sugar and fat I took out of this dessert bar. It would also work well with carrots or pumpkin. I like to cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave ahead of time for easy peeling later.

What a great way to enjoy sweet potatoes, & believe me, I'm always interested in new ways to prepare 'em! Great crust & very tasty filling! Couldn't be better than that! I kept these all right here at home, but I'm already planning on making them again soon to share with one of the monthly groups I host! A very nice keeper of a recipe!
