Paleo Sweet Potato Gingerbread Bars

January 24, 2012

 There’s something about cold weather and comforting foods… or in the case of these fun and festive bars, spices.

I love spices. All spices. The more the better, and the more is what I want.

If we’re talking sweet things and spices, I’m a huge fan of chai spices, pumpkin spices, mulling spices, and gingerbread spices. I think the common theme amongst all of those would be a little cinnamon and a little ginger- both of which I love.

 So, in the spirit of warm, comforting foods making their way into Wintery days, I baked up some gingerbread spices, pumpkin puree, sweet potato, and coconut flour. These are moist, delicious, low sugar, also low-glycemic, high in fiber, low in fat, sweetly spiced, and dotted with mini dairy-free chocolate chips.

Winter just couldn’t get better than these…

Just make ’em.

And then go enter the CORE Foods giveaway. Or make them after, I’m not picky.

And have a great day. :)

mmm!! do you think I could use whole wheat flour or peanut flour in replace of the coconut? or does the coconut give it more flavor?


Lori January 24, 2012 at 7:31 PM

You could use any flour, really. But the coconut flour soaks up A LOT more liquid- so if you do use a different flour, be aware when you’re adding in water/almond milk/liquid, etc. Add in a small amount first then see how the consistency is when you mix everything together.

Oh yum! These will hit the spot for me. I had a gingerbread craving a while back and these look perfect.

YUM! I saw the post title and was so excited that you’d manage to incorporate two of my favorite foods in one delicious treat.

I am also a fan of spice! [Blogger band of Spice Girls in the works? ;)]
