Sweet potatoes are a good source of carbohydrates. It is not starchy as potatoes so it's gaining popularity among healthy eaters. Orange-fleshed sweet potatoes may be one of nature's unsurpassed sources of beta-carotene. Several recent studies have shown the superior ability of sweet potatoes to raise our blood levels of vitamin A. I tried sweet potato brownies for the first time at Planet Organic. Before then, I find the combination a bit weird, but you know what? It's as tasty. Plus there's no refined sugar and bad stuff on it.

What You Need
2 medium sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons of almond butter
3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
100g of ground almonds (any nut alternatives will do)
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil; a pinch of salt
1/2 mug of ground oats
Optional: Cookie Butter for icing

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Boil the sweet potatoes for about 15 to 30 minutes until they are soft. Cut them into little cubes. Once they are mushy add them to a food processor (if you have one). In my case, I don't have a food processor so I just mashed them on a bowl. Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl, then mix it with your now squishy sweet potatoes.

Place into a lined baking dish and cook for about 40 to 45 minutes, until you can pierce the brownie with a toothpick and bring it out dry. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 20 minutes. Put tiny dollops of cookie butter on top of each square. Put them in an airtight container and enjoy!

The whole process took me about an hour. Obviously, we devoured it within 24 hours. It is so filling and good for you. You can have it as a snack, breakfast or dessert. Do give it a try and tag me on Instagram @callmekristineanne!
