Updated: Feb 19
For my sweet toothed fans out there! Ooey-Gooey & Healthier For you. These brownies are absolutely delish! So dense and flavorful you won't believe they aren't bad for you. Great idea for parties or a post game treat for your child's baseball team!
Ingredients (Serves 4)
3 eggs, large
½ cup maple syrup
¼ cup organic unsweetened applesauce
1 large sweet potato (will yield about a cup of puree)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup coconut flour (or almond flour)
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Slice your sweet potatoes in half longways and spray with coconut oil cooking spray or just rub coconut oil on them from a jar.
Pierce with a fork a few times and roast for around 40 minutes or until tender (depends on the size of your sweet potato).
Let cool for about 5 minutes and then scoop out sweet potato flesh and place in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF and generously spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet or 8x8 cake pan with coconut oil cooking spray. Set aside.
Place eggs, maple syrup, applesauce, sweet potato puree, and vanilla in a bowl and mix together until smooth.
Then add remaining ingredients into mixture.
Pour batter into skillet or pan and use a spatula to spread out evenly.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. Enjoy!
