Sweet Potato Granola Bars [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :



For the Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup activated buckwheat groats
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup pistachios
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

For the Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup hulled tahini
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cardamom pods, seeds crushed
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Add the nuts into a food processor and break them down into crunchy pieces. Set aside in a large bowl with the buckwheat, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and goji berries.
  2. Boil water in a pot and add a steamer basket.
  3. Chop the sweet potato into pieces (leave the skin on) and add to the steamer basket and steam for about 10 minutes (the smaller the pieces, the quicker it’ll cook).
  4. When the sweet potato is nice and tender, add to a food processor and pulse into a creamy mash.
  5. In another bowl combine the rest of the wet ingredients and whisk until combined. Add the sweet potato mash and mix until it’s all combined. It should be a gorgeous and fragrant color now (beware not to eat the whole thing as is while taste testing). If the wet ingredients are too hard, you could lightly melt on a saucepan on low heat. You don’t want to bring it to a boil here, it’s just so everything combines.
  6. Line a baking tray with parchment. Add your caramel-like wet mixture to the large bowl with the dry ingredients, mix, and add to the baking tray. Use a spoon to smooth it out.
  7. Place in the fridge or freezer for about 20 minutes and cut into bars. Store in the fridge.
