SWEET POTATO BROWNIES
I know what you’re thinking, “Gross! Sweet potatoes in brownies? ” BEFORE you stick your nose up at this recipe I want you to try it. These are the most delicious brownies I have ever made. So fudgy you wont even believe there’s sweet potatoes in them. Oh, and super kid friendly! High five, mom!
3/4 cup mashed sweet potato (steamed, then mashed with a fork)
1/2 cup creamy almond butter (use raw almond butter for best flavor)
1/2 cup cacao powder , or cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup gluten-free flour mix (I used King Arthur’s all-purpose mix when testing)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (optional; use a dairy-free brand like Enjoy Life to keep these vegan)
