Healthy Sweet Potato Bars With Oatmeal Whole Wheat Cookie Crust

Healthy Sweet Potato Bars With Oatmeal Whole Wheat Cookie Crust created by chefmata

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.

    I wonder about the eggs. Calls for egg whites to go in the crust. Then calls for 2 more eggs plus 2 more egg yolks? Is this right?

    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!
