Vegan Chai Sweet Potato S'mores Bars

Vegan Chai Sweet Potato S'mores Bars

What do you get when you cross your favourite summer treat with the warmth of the holidays? Vegan chai sweet potato s’mores bars of course!

I’ve always been a little bit confused about the sweet potato casserole served at Thanksgiving. It’s served as a side dish next to the brussel sprouts, gravy, and stuffing but then it’s also topped with marshmallows? Not sure how I feel about marshmallows getting mixed with the gravy or getting smeared over my green beans… For this reason, I think the sweet potato-marshmallow combo is more suitable in a dessert. And why shouldn’t it be on the dessert table? These vegan chai sweet potato bars are like pumpkin pie’s less traditional sister.
