Healthy Brownie Recipe!

Yes, we have actually created a healthier brownie that you can enjoy while still living a healthy lifestyle! When making these brownies, we wanted to make sure that we did not sacrifice taste or make them dry and crumbly – we love a fudgy, chocolatey, consistency – so our secret ingredient? Sweet potatoes!

These brownies are coming just in time for Valentine’s Day, and they also have a special meaning for us! Watch the video below to see why…

Healthy Fairburnin' Brownies

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:
-1 cup mashed/pureed sweet potato (you can either roast or microwave and then mash)
-1/2 cup pure almond butter, softened
-1/4 cup brewed black coffee
-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/4 cup cacao or unsweetened dark cocoa powder
-1/4 dark chocolate chips or chunks (at least 70% cacoa) or vegan chips, plus extra for topping
-Pinch of sea salt
-1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the sweet potato puree, almond butter, black coffee, maple syrup, and vanilla. Then mix in the remaining dry ingredients.

Very lightly spray a 5×7 or 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Pour the brownie mixture into the dish and spread mixture out until even. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. If you want to top with chocolate chips too, sprinkle the top of your brownies with the chips when there is about 10 minutes left.

Let the brownies cool before cutting into and eating (although it may be hard to wait)!

Enjoy!
