i'm only 14 years late to using that super cool vocabulary, but these brownies were awesomesauce.
yes, brownies. and yes they qualify for this primal/paleo eating (although josh says they defeat the purpose of this 'diet').
sweet potato brownies
from paleomg. aka my soon to be new best friend.
1 sweet potato (i only used half)
3 eggs, whisked (that means mix it up good after you dump in other ingredients, right?)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (i used evoo)
1/3 cup raw honey
1/2 cup enjoy life chocolate chips (plus a handful to snack on)
3 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
note: cocoa powder is not delicious by itself. do not bother to lick the measuring spoon. you may end up like glozell.
bakemicrowave the sweet potato as you would normally. peel skin and mash it up. i neglected to mash mine up well so there are "surprise" chunks of sweet potato throughout the brownies.
- add wet ingredients and then add dry ingredients.
- stir it up. pour into an 8x8 pan. bake 30-35 minutes at 350°.
- do everything possible to not eat the entire pan in one sitting.
and i swear i am not turning into a foodie. c'mon i was too lazy to fully follow the recipe. besides, wouldn't you rather discover a delicious healthy brownie recipe instead of hear about my whopping 1-mile run? exactly.
i did run a mile on tuesday though; it took forever. i also did 50 assisted (with a band) pull-ups.
