Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potatoes!!

I can’t get enough of these sweet potato brownies!

I got this recipe from my favorite paleo blog. I changed it a bit but it’s pretty much the same.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium to large orange sweet potato, roasted
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • ¼ cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
  • ⅓ cup raw honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • ¼ teaspoon GF baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Roast the sweet potato.
  2. Once your sweet potato is soft and cooked through, peel off the skin and mash it up in a bowl.
  3. Now add your wet ingredients: coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and whisked eggs to the bowl and mix together.
  4. Then add your dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt.
  5. Mix well to incorporate all that goodness.
  6. Pour into an 8×8 glass baking dish
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  8. Let rest to cool a bit.
  9. Sprinkle coconut and a light sprinkle of honey over the top

My oven is crazy, so I haven’t included temperatures because they won’t be the same as your oven. Just cook at the usual cake baking temperature you use!
