Sprinkles For Breakfast Bar Recipes Sweet Potato Streusel Bars

Best Desserts Using Sweet Potatoes

This year my roommate and I are throwing our first ever “Friendsgiving”. We decided that this time of year is about being thankful and bringing everyone we love together, and by doing so, we can remind our friends just how much they mean to us.

How to Make Streusel Bars

Quick and Easy Homemade Streusel Bars

To mix things up and make sure no one person had to do it all, we decided to make it a potluck. But, there was a catch – every dish had to have a personal story. Whether it was a spin on their favorite dish growing up, or longstanding family tradition – we wanted to know. I decided to put my own spin on my mom’s Sweet Potato Casserole (one of my favorite holiday dishes).

Learn to Bake Streusel Bars with Sweet Potato Filling

Once my mom found something she liked, she stuck to it. “Why fix something that ain’t broke?” she used to say in her adorable southern accent. That’s why, to this day, I still use McCormick Spices when baking. Even though my mom wasn’t a huge baker, we had every McCormick spice and extract in our house. She knew that when she needed it, the flavors and aromas when cooking with McCormick wouldn’t let her down – and her Sweet Potato Casserole is definitely evidence of that!

Once I finally got my own Sweet Potato Bars in the oven, my whole house filled with the most amazing smells – all I could think of was my childhood home and my mom doing what she did best on Thanksgiving, barking orders across the kitchen as our entire house filled with so much love. And now, I get to spread the love just a little further sharing these with my friends.

  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon McCormick Ground Cinnamon

Instructions
 

For the crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and parchment.
  • In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter.
  • Press into the bottom on the baking dish.
  • Bake for 8 -10 minutes, or until crumbs begin to turn golden.

For the topping:

  • Combine brown sugar, flour and pecans.
  • Add melted butter and mix with your hands or a fork until combined. Set aside.

For the filling:

  • Puree a 40 oz. can of sweet potatoes in a food processor. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine butter and sugars. Mix on high speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and mix until combined.
  • Add sweet potato puree, evaporated milk, McCormick Vanilla Extract, McCormick Cinnamon, McCormick Nutmeg and McCormick Ginger. Mix until combined.
  • Pour filling on top of crust and put in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, take baking dish out of the oven and spread the topping evenly over the filling. Lightly press down so topping is secure. Put baking dish back into the oven.
  • Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Set on a wire rack to cool.
  • Once they are cool, cut into bars and serve. **

Notes

**Tip - I like to put the baking dish in the freezer for an hour or two before I cut them into bars. It makes for a cleaner cut!

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

It makes pricing quick and easy.

You never have to stress about undercharging again.

Basically, it’s the best thing EVER.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.
