VEGAN SWEET POTATO BROWNIES
Brownies from sweet potatoes? I’m down!
There’s something so addicting about these vegan sweet potato brownies! They’re easy to make, great for on-the-go and totally satisfying! You can eat them for dessert, snack or even lunch 😉 – there’s quite the health benefits to these little chocolaty squares. They pack a punch of nutrition with a lot of vitamin A and iron and taste so delicious with almost anything you pair them with!
Sweet potatoes are a fantastic base for this recipe. Besides the fact that I love them and they are so easy to bake with, we reap many health benefits from eating sweet potatoes. So if I can turn them into a delicious treat like brownies… COUNT ME IN 🙌 !
Sweet potatoes are great for:
cleansing the body
maintaining healthy weight
promoting healthy digestion
fighting against many diseases
Once you try this recipe out yourself, you may find you want a little more carob powder, maybe an extra scoop of sugar… or another banana if you’re a banana girl like me (✌️😁). To me, this is a very basic, interchangeable recipe where you may find you want to substitute beets for sweet potatoes, or the Japanese sweet potatoes taste better to you as opposed to the most common orange variety. Take this recipe and make it yours because you absolutely need this in your life!
