Sweet Potato Brownies
These sweet potato brownies got me feelin some type of way! If you are a sweet treat junky then you have to try these, they taste just like regular brownies. But they're gluten free, refined sugar free, packed with collagen and protein .. what's not to love here!? I liked using the tins so I could practice a little self control but I have a feeling they won't last long. (I store these in the fridge and they last a week for optimal freshness). I use these as dessert after dinner or even a mid day snack, usually with peanut butter drizzled over the top!
INGEDIENTS 1 large sweet potato 4 scoops collagen peptides (substitute 2-3 scoops pea protein powder for vegetarian option) 3tbs cacao powder 2 eggs 3tbs coconut oil 2tbs honey (optional substitute is pure maple syrup or opt out of this step to make it sugar free) 1tsp cinnamon 1tbs vanilla extract 1tsp baking powder 1/2 chocolate bar/ 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used 85% dark chocolate) Pink Himalayan salt . . .
