“Don’t Tell Them It’s A Vegetable” Snack Bars

6 oz raisins (1 cup)
3 oz coconut (little less than 1 cup shredded)
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup baked mashed sweet potatoes
(or any sweet squash, or pumpkin plus a little honey)

Shred coconut flakes in food processor and pour in another container. Process raisins, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt until raisins are chopped tiny and want to stick together in a big clump. Add sweet potatoes and coconut and process until thoroughly mixed.

Form balls, or press into an 8×8 pan. Refrigerate 3 hours until firm. Cut into bars and freeze half or they’ll be gone in no time.
