Sweet potatoes are so much more than just a side dish. Their texture and sweetly earthy flavor makes them perfect for baking. If you love baking with pumpkin then you’ll really love baking with sweet potatoes. These blondies are the perfect example. They’re soft and moist, with that warm, familiar cinnamon flavor. They really do taste just like my favorite coffee shop treat.
Out of all the treats and baked goods I’ve made over the last few months, both new and old, these sweet potato blondies have taken the lead as the hands down family favorite. Both kids have been caught sneaking out of the kitchen with a blondie in each hand. And then there was the day that my parents came for a visit and an entire pan disappeared in less than an hour.
