Who said you can't have potatoes for dessert? Though it might seem like a strange idea to you, potatoes are a great base for plant-based desserts.

Rich chocolatey truffles, chocolate fudge, and chocolate cookies all made with potatoes. Nom nom nom.

Though rice is a staple food here in Cambodia, I still prefer potatoes over rice. Even after all these years here my hubby and I rarely eat rice.

Sweet Potato vs Regular Potato


The past few years, sweet potatoes have been touted a health food while regular potatoes have been given a bad rep. And that's a real shame because both tubers should be part of our diet.

Some nutrients are more abundant in sweet potatoes, and some in regular potatoes. Choosing a particular potato depends on your personal preference and the dish you are preparing.

Also, if you need more vitamin A at the moment, choose sweet potatoes. If iron is what you need opt for regular potatoes.

In a double boiler system, melt the chocolate, stirring often. When melted entirely, add a pinch of salt to the chocolate and give it a quick stir.

Transfer to the blender with the potato mash. Process until smooth mixture. Add the maple syrup, plant milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Line a small loaf pan or another dish with plastic wrap hanging over the sides. Add all of the chocolate fudge mixtures into the dish and spread out with a spatula.

Top with your favorite topping or superfoods and cover with plastic foil. I used coconut flakes, crushed pistachios, and goji berries.

#2 Mashed Potato Chocolate truffles

Coatings of your choice: I used desiccated coconut, desiccated coconut + lime zest, raw cacao, and crushed pistachios.

Directions


Cook potatoes in boiling water, mash and allow to cool.

In a double boiler system, melt the chocolate, stirring often. When melted entirely, stir in the mashed potatoes. Add the vanilla and stir well. Place the mixture in the fridge to firm up for 20 to 30 minutes.

Pour your coatings of choice into little bowls and have them ready.

#3 Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookie


Ingredients


1 small sweet potato (about 135 g), spiralized
25g old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2-1 tsp ground cinnamon
40 g or1.4 oz dark vegan chocolate
1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water. Mix and let sit for few minutes)
1.5-2 tbsp homemade peanut butter
1.2-1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 cup water
Optional topping: pomegranate seeds

Directions


Spiralize the sweet potato and transfer the noodles to a food processor and pulse until it forms rice-like grains. Combine the sweet potato grains with the oats, cinnamon, and chocolate. Mix well and set aside.

sic-5.jpg

In another bowl beat the chia egg with the peanut butter, maple syrup or honey, and vanilla. Add water as needed. Since I used homemade peanut butter I needed to add a little more water since it has a harder consistency compared to store-bought.

sic-6.jpg

sic-8.jpg

sic-9.jpg

Combine the wet ingredients in the dry ingredients. Add more water if needed.

sic-10.jpg

Preheat oven to 180C or 355F.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto the trays and flatten them with your hands or a spoon. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until nicely browned. Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking tray then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.

Same here. Love potatoes. Such a shame that we live so far apart... Still got some left in the fridge to share. Have a beautiful day

Someday we will be closer; I am working on it 🌴😊🌴

Hehe. We are working on it too. One or two more years in Asia and we are coming to the other side of the world. We are thinking of somewhere in the Andes... Could be many countries. Not sure which we will pick yet.

Thanks for the support 😻

Oh my goodness, another brilliant idea! Potato fudge--I'm all over that! Definitely going to give that a try soon. I'm so with you on spuds getting a bad name. I love all the varieties, and regularly rotate them out in my meal prep. Sweet potato pie is a big staple here for the holidays, so perhaps I need to give that a try soon, too. :)

Same here. I love my spuds. Too bad we don't have many varieties here in Cambodia... but we got tons of cheap sweet or purple sweet potatoes. Enjoy teh holiday season!

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR STAR AWARD DEAR Amy, for this highly curated entry with exceptional quality content. Keep up the great job 😊
