Splendid Chocolate Chunk Chewy Bars, gluten free, high protein

These splendid bars are moist, chewy, packed with protein and have less fat and sugar than many recipes because they are made with sweet potato! I originally set out to make pumpkin bars with  my roasted squash  from Christmas. I made so much of it that I froze it for other projects. But then I noticed that I had mashed sweet potato in the fridge that needed to be used up and it worked great!  So don't be afraid to experiment my friends.  It's part of the fun!

Sweet Potato Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Skins, gluten free

Sweet potatoes and bacon are a match made in heaven! We make these wonderful Sweet Potato and bacon skins with our organic sweet potatoes  for an appetizer, side dish or sometimes to keep our budget under control, as a simple dinner with a big salad.
Did you know that orange-fleshed sweet potatoes may be one of nature's unsurpassed sources of beta-carotene? Several recent studies have shown the superior ability of sweet potatoes to raise our blood levels of vitamin A. 
This benefit may be particularly true for children. In several studies from Africa, sweet potatoes were found to contain between 100-1,600 micrograms (RAE) of vitamin A in every 3.5 ounces—enough, on average, to meet 35% of all vitamin A needs, and in many cases enough to meet over 90% of vitamin A needs (from this single food alone).
It's important to have some fat in your sweet potato-containing meals if you want to enjoy the full beta-carotene benefits of this root vegetable. Recent research has shown that a minimum of 3-5 grams of fat per meal significantly increases our uptake of beta-carotene from sweet potatoes. Of course, this minimal amount of fat can be very easy to include. 
In my recipe I include 1 tablespoon of butter, and with just this one tablespoon,  you can achieve the ultimate benefit of this amazing vegetable.  Go visit our friends at Space Girl Organics or your local CSA and order your organic sweet potatoes now!
