Step 1
Pierce the Sweet Potato (1) all over with a fork and put it on a microwave-safe plate. Cook in the Panasonic Microwave Oven for 5 minutes or until tender. Let it cool enough to handle, then cut it in half and scoop out 1/2 cup of filling from the skin.
Step 2
Into a food processor, add the sweet potato, Pitted Dates (12) , Walnuts (1 cup) , Slivered Almonds (1 cup) , Pumpkin Seeds (1/4 cup) , Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (1/4 cup) , Ground Flaxseed (1 tsp) , Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp) , Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp) , and Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp) . Pulse it together until you have a mixture that is fine but still has some texture.
Step 3
Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment, leaving a little hanging over the edge. Press the mixture firmly into the pan so that it sticks together well.
Step 4
Refrigerate the tray for at least 3 hours or up to overnight.
Step 5
Lift the firmed up mixture out of the tray and cut it into 9 squares by making two equal cuts both horizontally and vertically. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for a few days. Enjoy! Cooking results may vary depending on microwave oven used.
