These deliciously spiced Gingerbread Sweet Potato Blondies are the perfect festive treat. These Blondies have less added sugar than a traditional blondie and along with some sneaky vegetables they are the perfect class party Christmas sweet.


  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (250g raw)
  • 125g butter melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips (50g)
  • 1 1/4 cup plain wholemeal flour (150g)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Icing (confectioners) sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. Prepare your sweet potato and set aside to cool (see note)
  2. Preheat your oven to 175c and grease and line a 27.5cm x 17.5cm x 3.5cm slice pan
  3. Melt the butter in the microwave and allow to cool slightly
  4. In a large bowl whisk together the sweet potato, butter, maple syrup, vanilla and eggs and whisk thoroughly together
  5. Add in the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon and white chocolate chips and stir until just combined
  6. Spread into the prepared slice pan and bake at 175c for around 15 minutes or until the brownie is just cooked through and the top bounces back when lightly touched and a skewer inserted comes out mostly clean
  7. Allow to cool in the pan before removing and cutting into 16 portions
  8. Lightly dust with icing sugar before serving (optional)
