Vegan Sweet Potato Brownies
Even if you’re not #vegan, don’t skip this recipe. I bet you’ll find it’s worth a try, especially if you love chocolate as much as I do.
It was so good, I’ve made it twice. The first time I used only five ingredients:
*Sweet potato, one cup cooked and mashed
*Nut butter (I used almond), 1/2 cup
*Maple syrup, 1/3 cup
*Vanilla, one teaspoon
*Cocoa, 1/3 cup
Blend all ingredients by hand or in a food processor. Spread in a pie plate or small square baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes. Let sit until completely cool. If you have the time, the flavors get even better if it’s refrigerated or even frozen. I cut them into bite-sized pieces ‘cos it’s really rich.
You don’t actually NEED frosting, but who ever said no to more chocolate? Here’s my best baking hack for that… https://enchantedseashells.com/2014/09/17/best-baking-hack-ever/
The results were a bit dense, so the next time, I added 1/2 cup flour, and that made all the difference. I used regular white flour, but it would be so easy to blend some oats for oat flour, so that’s definitely an option.
YUM. Delicious AND healthy!
P.S. This recipe isn’t overly sweet, so if you want to add more maple syrup or even a LITTLE sugar, go ahead. I thought it was perfect without any additional sweetener, but I’m a choco-holic.
