It's summer, the kids are home from school, and it seems like they are always asking for a treat. Instead of giving them Popsicles, freezer pops, Twizzlers, or other sugary treats, make these brownies for them. They are grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and yummy! They won't even be able to taste the vegetables and they are easy to make!
1 1/2 cup organic sweet potatoes, mashed
1 cup smooth almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 c. organic maple sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1. Wash the sweet potatoes well. Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork and bake them in the oven for about 1 hour (until they are soft). This can be done ahead of time and the sweet potatoes stored in the refrigerator.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper.
3. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, adding the egg last. Once all the ingredients are mixed well, pour the batter into the pan.
4. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let them cool before cutting.
