These paleo sweet potato brownies will trick even the pickiest of eaters into eating something pretty healthy! The problem with traditional sweets and brownies is that you are essentially eating empty calories, nothing with nutrition that is going to really count. With these sweet potato brownies you are getting all the healthy nutrients from the sweet potato, cashews and of course eggs! My kids love these and I always have the ingredients on hand in my pantry to make them.
I think putting everything in the blender is one of the key parts in making sure that the brownies have the right texture, I use a blendtec, it is my very favorite blender that I have used! Click HERE to check it out
I did a cooking segment on Good Things Utah back in June and I am showing the video below so you can see just how easy it is!
- 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
- 2 eggs
- 1¼ cup almond or cashew butter
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- ⅓ c coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
- 3 tbsp coco powder
- First poke holes in 2 large sweet potatoes and cover in foil and bake sweet potatoes at 450 for 1 hour or until very soft and blend in blender with the coconut oil till smooth. Mix in the rest of ingredients and bake for 25-35 minutes at 350* in greased 9×13 pan. You can add chocolate chips if you want it more chocolatey or melt chocolate in sauce pan with some coconut cream for a chocolate ganache topping.
