Instructions

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into small pieces. Place them in a saucepan with the sugar. Add water to cover. Cook briskly until the potatoes are soft and most of the water has evaporated. Take a fork and mash the potatoes, turning down the heat. Keep crushing stirring until you have a purée: you will see that the potatoes become caramelised and the water will have been completely absorbed.

Preheat the oven to 170°.

Add the honey and oil. Keep cooking for a few minutes. Add the muesli (or cereals if preferred) and nuts, stirring thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a rectangular baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Spread out the mixture and press it down evenly with the back of a spoon.

Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. After this time, cut into bars with the aid of a sharp knife, taking care to make clear cuts.
