Healthy Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies

Nourishing, healthy ingredients

These treats are so nourishing, I like to enjoy them for breakfast, a snack, or dessert! While these brownies taste indulgent, they are actually packed with fiber, protein, and healthy fats. This recipe is free of refined oils, refined sugars, gluten, and dairy. 11 simple ingredients are all you need.

  • 1 cup of mashed sweet potatoes— I like to bake a bunch of sweet potatoes at 425 degrees until very fork tender (~45-60 minutes), peel the skin off, and then blend them with an electric handheld mixer. About 2 medium sweet potatoes should give you a cup mashed, but I just bake 4-5 at a time and use the leftovers throughout the week!
  • Coconut oil— I get this kind and love it!
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Almond flour
  • Almond butter (the only ingredient on the label should be almonds— this is the kind I like)
