Southern Yam Dessert Squares

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

These dessert bars are a more casual but certainly no less delicious version of sweet potato pie. With a hearty oat crust and nutty streusel topping, they are sure to impress.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Add dry ingredients; mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture, press remainder firmly on bottom of 13X9-inch baking dish. Bake 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients except nuts; mix well. Pour over prepared crust. Combine nuts with reserved crumb mixture; crumble evenly over top.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. Serve warm or chilled. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
