Favorite foodie blog- Sweet Potato Blondies

Happy Friday friends!
Summer is in full swing here. Heat, the pool, popsicles, tan lines, swim lessons, more heat, pool side snacks and even more heat 😉

Since we have been celebrating the end of the school year and the beginning of summer, I wanted to make a fun yet healthy treat.  I have been eyeing Annmarie’s sweet potato blondies for a while now, and decided to finally make them!  Perfect timing for this weeks theme!

I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our Fav Foodie Blogger themed week!

Directions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350* degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix together mashed sweet potato, almond butter, protein powder, maple syrup, egg & baking soda.
  3. Scoop into an 8×8 baking dish.  Smooth the top to ensure it is even in the baking dish.
  4. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked into the center of the blondies.
  5. Remove from the oven, let cool then cut into squares.
  6. While the blondies cool, heat 1 oz of white chocolate chips in the microwave for 20 seconds at a time until they are all melted.
  7. Scoop melted white chocolate into a decorating bag and squeeze onto the blondies.
  8. Enjoy this delicious treat!
