Judy and I entertain often and our guests always say that we “intoxicate them with chocolate!” Well here we go again but this time the intoxication is totally natural, totally unrefined and absolutely healthy! This will be the most delicious HEALTHY brownie recipe you will ever make! They are luxiouriously rich and fudgy. The moist but chewy texture is perfectly satisfying AND there is no flour or sugar you say?? Yes! That is correct.
Not only does the delish sweet potato step in as a substitute for the butter and eggs, it is an amazing antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. So grab a big glass of cold milk or a steaming fresh cuppa coffee. Eating brownies with less guilt has never ever been so sweet. Enjoy!
Better For You Brownies
1 cup mashed, cooked sweet potato
1/4 cup smooth almond butter
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup (can use agave)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
handful of chocolate chips, optional (can use cacao nibs)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a small loaf pan, set aside. Melt the nut butter with the maple syrup in a microwave safe bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add chips if you are using and mix again. Pour into your greased pan and bake for about 20 minutes.
Cool, slice and enjoy!
