Think brownies when you make these vegetable enriched bars. Perfect to pack in a lunch or enjoy with an afternoon tea or coffee. Leftover mashed sweet potato is a perfect substitute for this recipe.



  1. Place sweet potato in microwaveable bowl with 1/4 cup (60 mL) of water. Cover and microwave on High for 5 minutes or until very tender. Drain water and mash. Whisk in chocolate until melted. Whisk in sugar and eggs, one at a time, butter and vanilla.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Stir into potato mixture until smooth. Spread into an 8 inch (1.5 L) parchment paper lined baking pan. Bake in preheated 350 F (180 C) oven for about 20 minutes or until tester inserted in centre comes out with a few moist crumbs. Let cool slightly before cutting into bars.
