Paleo Sweet Potato Gingerbread Bars

11 comments

 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. :)

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? ;) ]

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?

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.
