These Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bars are packed with oatmeal, sweet potato, walnuts, and tons of chocolate goodness. They make the perfect make-ahead breakfast or snack!



  • 1 1/3 cup sweet potato, mashed/puréed
  • 2/3 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups rolled oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips/chocolate chunks (plus more to sprinkle on top, optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper (or spray with non-stick spray) and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the sweet potato, almond butter, and maple syrup until smooth.
  3. Add in the oatmeal, walnuts, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt and mix until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop dough into prepared pan, sprinkle chocolate chips on top, and bake for 12 – 15 minutes. Let cool, slice, and enjoy!


I like to bake or steam my sweet potatoes to prepare them to be mashed.
