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! 

  • 1 1/2 cups of naked mashed sweet potato 
  • 1 cup of nut butter (I used cashew)
  • 3 Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 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.
  4. Fold chocolate chips in
  5. Lightly coat an 8x8 pan with coconut oil. 
  6. Once ingredients have been mixed, pour batter into baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes. 
  7. Let cool for 30  minutes and enjoy!!
