Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bars


2015/05/07 by nikkiledford

This is the result of complete recipe improvisation.

I was scanning an old bread recipe and didn’t have the necessary ingredients on hand, so I swapped here, added there. The result was pretty incredible. I’m so glad that it was for a client because my husband and I were ready to consume the entire pan.


Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bars

1/2 c. tapioca starch
1/2 c. almond meal
1/2 c. coconut sugar
2 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch salt
1/2 c. sweet potato puree
3 eggs
1/2 c. coconut shortening (I used the Nutiva brand)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 c. dark chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together all the wet ingredients until smooth.
  3. In another bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients, leaving the chocolate chips on the side.
  4. Mix together wet and dry until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into a greased or lined 8×8 glass dish.
  6. Bake for 35-40 mins until golden and set in the middle.
  7. Let cool and then cut into bars. (10 bars)

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
