B's Sweet Tater Bars.

Sweet Potato, Zucchini, and Oatmeal Bars

This was my first attempt at these, so the recipe may need some tweaks.  Trying to get B to eat more veggies and sweet potatoes.  

1 large sweet potato, cooked until soft (I microwaved mine)
1/2 zucchini grated (you could easily use a whole zucchini, I only had a 1/2 in my fridge)
1/4c coconut oil
1/4c brown sugar
dash cinnamon 
dash salt
couple of tbs flax seeds
1 to 1.5c rolled oats.  (I added gradually and stopped when I felt like I had a good consistency)

mix together in a bowl while the sweet potato is still hot (this will melt the coconut oil).  spread evenly into a pan, sprinkle a little brown sugar on top.  bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. 

UPDATE:  Made them again today, but I milled the oatmeal and the flaxseed into a flour, and the consistency was much better.  About like a brownie.  Way less crumbly than the first time.
