Sweet potatoes are much more than just a side dish. Enjoy these soft and moist sweet potato blondies with a maple syrup glaze.



For the Blondies:

  • Cooking oil spray
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sweet potato puree

For the Glaze:

  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper and coat with a thin layer of cooking oil spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
  3. In another mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and sweet potato puree.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well to combine. The batter will be thick. Spread it into the prepared pan, using the back of a spoon to even out the top.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and let cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before removing from the pan and allowing to cool completely.
  6. Whisk together the maple syrup and powdered sugar until you get a thick glaze. Spread over the top of the brownies, and let sit until slightly hardened, about 20 minutes. Cut into squares and serve.
