Paleo (Flourless) Sweet Potato Bread

Paleo (Flourless) Sweet Potato Bread


There are days that I just love baking. I'll bake three or four things if I'm not busy with running the kids around or doing chores and the easiest thing is to throw everything into one bowl, mix and pour into a baking dish and set the timer and walk away. This is one of those easy receips!

Check out another easy paleo, flourless "bread" recipe found here. For those of you allergic to gluten, this is a great recipe as it provides lots of healthy fat and vegetables! My kids eat this and prefer it to unhealthy desserts. Try this out; you won't be disappointed!
Ingredients:
1 1/2cup almond butter
2 eggs
1 1/2cups mashed sweet potatoes
2Tbsp maple syrup or honey
1/4cup unsweetened applesauce (Check out my applesauce recipe and it has cinnamon in it already!)
1 1/2tsp baking soda
1/4tsp cinnamon
1/4cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together (besides the pecans) in a food processor or beat on high with a mixer until smooth. Grease a 13x9 pan with coconut oil or olive oil and pour the mixture into the pan. Top with pecans and bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool and serve.
Tip: If you have leftovers, cut into portion sizes, line a sheet pan with parchment paper and freeze for 1 hour then move to a freezer bag.


Eat and Enjoy!

  1. They taste amazing, but mine is so gooey it just falls right apart, can't eat it as slices like I thought I could. Any suggestions how to make it thicker?

    1. Hi Mandy,

      I haven't tried to slice it as you would bread, but it's texture is similar to cake.. light and fluffy.. so I can imagine it would be pretty difficult to get thin slices. The only way would be to freeze it then slice it and thaw it.

      Hope that helps!

  2. Made this for breakfast today. Yummy. What I loved is that it's not too sweet but it fills the craving for baked goods for breakfast. I just ditched breakfast cereal for me kids so I've been looking for recipes to ease the transition and this definitely fit the bill. Didn't have chocolate chips so used raisins. Gonna try the banana versioin next.

  3. Do you think a chia seed "egg" would work? Hubby is allergic to eggs.
