Potatoes are such a versatile ingredient, and based on how you prepare them, the possibilities you can come up with are endless. With the help of the Food Monster App, @OneGreenPlanet decided to take a sweeter approach to potato dishes. So, we found some delicious desserts that include potatoes for you to prepare to celebrate National Potato Lover’s Day!
1. Black Bean Fudge Brownies With Sweet Potato Caramel
Everybody loves brownies, but brownies with caramel are by far the best. This Black Bean Fudge Brownies With Sweet Potato Caramel uses a rich chocolate, black bean, and date brownie batter and then swirls homemade sweet potato caramel throughout the dessert.
2. Sweet Potato French Daisies
A beautiful French dish that is similar to a twice-baked potato but so much more elegant. These little Sweet Potato French Daisies are not only fancy but also only have eight ingredients!
3. Hasselback Sweet Potatoes With Apple Cranberry Relish
These vegan Hasselback Sweet Potatoes With Apple Cranberry Relish are a perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors. The cranberries provide a yummy tartness to compliment the sweet potatoes and apple, and provide great textural pops. Super simple, but SO impressive. This creation is colorful and is perfect to combine with any other holiday dish, or to eat by itself.
4. Maple Sweet Potato Casserole With Granola Topping
The topping is a delicious and refined sugar-free granola, whose crunchy texture goes perfectly with the soft and creamy sweet potato center. But besides the decadent taste and texture, what you’ll love most about this Maple Sweet Potato Casserole With Granola Topping is how simple and easy it is to prepare, and what a wonderful make-ahead meal it makes for holiday dinner parties. Just store it in the fridge and bake in the oven right before you’re ready to serve.
5. Sweet Potato Cranberry Pancakes
6. Sweet Potato Pie
7. Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal
This Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal is perfect for breakfast on-the-go! The seasonal sweet potatoes combined with the chocolate and the oats make for an indulgent, dessert-like breakfast treat that helps you start your day with lots of healthy carbs for long-lasting energy.
8. Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Brownies
These blender Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Brownies are one bowl (meaning the blender bowl) and are sort of healthy. I mean, it’s a brownie, how healthy can you really get? Gluten-free, vegan, and perfect for indulging any spur-of-the-moment chocolate craving. The sweet potato in the brownie base helps keep these brownies as fudgy and gooey as possible.
9. Healthy Chocolate Orange Sweet Potato Fudge Cake
This has to be one of the fudgiest chocolate cakes, ever. The secret ingredient? Sweet potatoes! This Healthy Chocolate Orange Sweet Potato Fudge Cake is also made with dates, olive oil, coconut and almond milk, cocoa powder, cashews, spelt flour, and orange juice. Not only is it healthy, but it’s not too hard to make, either! All you need is a food processor, a large mixing bowl and one or two round cake pans.
10. Sweet Potato Pone: Sweet Potato Pudding
Sweet Potato Pone, which is also widely known as the potato pound of Belize, is a traditional dessert from Belize that consists of grated sweet potato, raisins, milk, cinnamon, and ginger. The texture is very similar to bread pudding, but in this recipe, sweet potato takes the place of bread as the starch that soaks up all the wonderful flavors.
11. Sweet Potato Pecan Pie
This Seasonal Dessert is much more than sweet potato pie with pecans on it. It’s two pies combined into one! There’s one layer of pecan filling over a layer of sweet potato filling, so you can have the best of both worlds. If you are looking for a pie comparable to the ones your grandma served up every year during the holidays, you got it right here.
12. Purple Sweet Potato Chocolate Tart With Almond Cookie Crust
This Purple Sweet Potato Chocolate Tart With Almond Cookie Crust is almost too beautiful to eat (almost). The almond cookie crust used for this tart is slightly crumbly (in a good, cookie type of way!), and stays crisp beneath the rich dark chocolate filling. This tart is both gluten free and vegan, but tastes rich and satisfying. Purple sweet potatoes are the base of the filling and taste slightly sweet without giving off vegetable vibes – this is a perfect healthy treat!
13. Sweet Potato Ginger Granola Bars
These Sweet Potato Ginger Granola Bars are soft, a little chewy, and oh so satisfying. Plus, they’re packed with nutrients from the sweet potatoes, including beta carotene, fiber, anti-inflammatory properties, and antioxidants that aid in keeping our digestive tract healthy. All of that mixed with almond butter, gluten-free oats, and shredded coconut make for a perfect snack to give you energy and curb midday cravings.
