Sweet Potato Brownies
- 1 c. mashed sweet potato, or comote (in Costa Rica)
- ½ c. almond butter
- 3 Tbsp. raw local honey
- 1/8 c. cocoa powder
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
- Peel and boil enough sweet potato to yield one cup. Approximately 1 lg. sweet potato.
- Once the sweet potato has cooled, mash it gently.
- Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a small cake/loaf pan.
- In a small pot on the stove, melt the almond butter in with the honey.
- In a large bowl add the mashed sweet potato, melted nut butter and maple syrup blend, and cocoa powder. Mix well by hand.
- Pour mixture into your greased pan and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until cooked through.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing and refrigerating.
These brownies are best when cooled completely. Store in fridge or freezer and enjoy a fudge-like treat that is nutritious!
