This week I decided to test out these clean eating sweet potato brownies in honor of National Brownie Day...I expected them to be good, but they exceeded my expectations! A great healthier alternative to the regular boxed brownies and they are also gluten free!

  • 2 tsps cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or cocao nibs

  1. peel, dice, and steam 1 large sweet potato. Once steam use food processor to mash, put aside. 
  2. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. 
  3. Mix all ingredients in a bowl except for the chocolate chips, adding the egg last.
