13 Sweet Potato Dessert Recipes: Healthy Holiday Sweets

1. Sweet Potato Blondies

This dessert is so moist and decadent it’s hard to believe it has sweet potatoes in it! It is shockingly scrumptious and is almost fudge like. A blond brownie with ingredients picked with lots of love. It is hard not to go back for more. The ingredients and flavor couldn’t be more timely for the winter. If you can share… it would be a great treat for all to enjoy!

2. Vegan Sweet Potato Doughnuts With Spiced Sugar

Today, I have a surprisingly VEGAN recipe for you! But the real kicker is this; they are awesome. One bowl; one pan; mix and fry.

3. Sweet Potato Sourdough Pancakes

The sweet potato adds a natural sweet earthiness and deep flavor to the sourdough. It makes them more tender and delicate than the chewy sourdough we are accustomed to. Not to mention they are a striking orange color when cooked.

9. Sweet Potato Pound Cake With Cinnamon Cream Glaze

Its very name is wintery, don’t you think? Though I’m sure I could easily be convinced to do so, at the moment I just can’t picture myself biting into a piece of this cake in, say, the dog days of August, while the air conditioning is cranking away and all of the markets are brimming with fresh summer fruit. Some desserts seem to find their reason for existing only in the months ending in “er” or “ary” and clearly this is one of them.

10. Sweet Potato Cobbler

Sweet Potato Cobbler is a new favorite at our house.  Most of the more traditional recipes call for a dough more like a pie crust and while it is delicious, I wanted something that didn’t require you to have to roll out dough – I just don’t always have time for that.  My recipes uses a less fussy dough that you simply crumble over the potatoes.   Of course, it also uses that amazing White Lily flour that you know I love.   It’s the perfect blend of the gooeyness of cobbler with a little crunch of a crisp and is for your Thanksgiving table.  It works great as a side (you know us Southerners and our sweet sides) or as a delicious dessert.

11. Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallow & Pecan Streusel

This Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows and Streusel will absolutely be on our table this holiday. It is my go-to sweet potato casserole recipe. It continues to be one of the most popular recipes on this site and it is a strong standing family favorite.

12. Sweet Potato Pecan Pie

Two classics combined into one, Sweet Potato Pecan Pie! Not too sweet but with the perfect fall flavor, this is a great dessert for Thanksgiving!

13. Cinn-ful Sweet Potato Cookies

Beyond switching the pumpkin to sweet potato, I went solely with cinnamon for the spice, opted to use oil for the fat (to show you its versatility in cookies!) and added a wee bit of fiber by using whole wheat pastry flour (though you can use plain old all-purpose white flour if desired). I have yet to experiment with the gluten-free flours or blends in these sweet potato cookies, but plan to soon.

14. Sweet Potato Pie Macaroons

Thanksgiving is just a week away which means at this moment, intense pie planning is going down. So I hope you won’t mind if I interfere and suggest maybe not making a pie at all? Maybe instead, make a pie inspired treat? Like these macarons? That’ll definitely set your dessert table apart from everybody else’s this year.

15. Sweet Potato Cheesecake

Excellent! I added a pecan crumble top instead of marshmallows.
