My sweet tooth and creativity have been in hyper speed lately and now that school is winding down, I am mastering new recipes. Paleo and vegan recipes. However, I fight with where I land on the lifestyle chain. I am dairy free, grain free, and gluten free mainly. I do eat oats and peanut butter. I’m not sure I physically manage any beans in my diet. I tried and it was quite the catastrophe.
I may at some point consider being an ongoing vegan but I am not there yet, nor am I sure that taking that road would be my own choice, minus food lifestyle pressure I feel from others who have transitioned into veganism. Still sorting through what is true for me, and what is responsible for me and my family.
Ok, with that being said; I mastered a lovely fudge-filled, rich and chocolately Paleo Sweet Potato Brownie recipe and I wanted to make sure to share it!
These Paleo Sweet Potato Brownies were a snap to make and only require a half hour baking time.
3/4 Sweet Potato Puree
1 1/4 C. Almond Butter
4 Tbs. Melted Coconut Oil
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tsp. Cinnamon (optional)
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Tbsp. Almond Milk
1/4 C. Honey
1/2 C. Coconut Sugar
3/4 C. Cocoa Powder
Suggested Add-ins: Dairy free chocolate chips, walnuts, pecans, dairy free caramel candies etc.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Add in all liquid ingredients and mix. Sift all dry ingredient in a separate bowl. Slowly, in small batches; add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Blend the ingredients until the mixture is consistent. Bake for 30 minutes. If you like a crisp texture to your brownies bake for an additional 10 minutes.
