Then add the nuts and dates and begin to pulse. Mainly you want to make sure the dates have been pulverized and the cookies have been crushed. This will ensure you will be able to press the mixture down into the glass pan to create a crust. Which is the very next step.

Press the biscoff cookie mixture down into the glass pan. Then continue packing the mixture down into it forms a crust across the entire bottom of the glass pan. For this recipe I decided to use two different glass pans. Feel free to use one glass pan even if you are using two different potato types like I show here.

Once the breakfast bars biscoff cookie crust has been pressed down into your glass pan(s), throw the glass pan(s) into the oven for about 10 minutes while you make the sweet potato pie filling.

To make the sweet potato pie filling you’ll to clean, peel and chop your sweet potatoes. While doing this be sure to bring a pot of water to a boil. Then add your chopped potatoes to the water and allow to boil until fork tender. Drain the potatoes and add to the food processor along with the ground ginger, ground cinnamon and tapioca flour. Then blend these ingredients until smooth.

Create and Bake the Sweet Potato Pie Breakfast Bars

Gently layer this mixture on top of the biscoff cookie crust (once it’s out of the oven). Then top with your choice of granola. I have linked my favorite granola here. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown and filling has firmed up.

Once these breakfast bars have finished cooking it’s time to enjoy!

How soon after baking are these breakfast bars ready?

Once these sweet potato pie breakfast bars are finished baking allow them to cool for 10 – 15 minutes. Then cut into squares and enjoy. You want the breakfast bars to be firm to the touch. That’s how you know they are ready to be enjoyed.

How do you make granola bars stick together?

The trick to getting this recipe to “stick together” is in ensuring your sweet potato mixture is thick enough when layering it. The way to achieve this is by using the tapioca flour. You may also use cornstarch as a substitute to tapioca flour. Then baking allows it to “adhere” to the crust.
