How (And Why) To Make Sweet Potato Brownies

Brownies are one of those quintessential crowd-pleasing desserts… who doesn’t love them? With the rich, sweet taste of chocolate and that creamy, cakey dense quality that makes them a perfect base for things like sundaes, brownies are the bomb.

Unfortunately, they aren’t exactly high on the list of healthy foods. Good for your spirit, yes. Good for your waistline… well, no. But with these sweet potato brownies, you don’t have to worry about any of that. You’ll get everything you’ve come to love about brownies, without all the unhealthy ingredients that give you pause whenever they cross your path.

Why You Need Sweet Potato Brownies

If this is the first you’re hearing of sweet potatoes in brownies, you might think it’s a little odd. Maybe even gross. What on Earth would sweet potatoes be doing in brownies? Turns out they do a whole lot, and they do it all while going totally undetected in your all-time favorite dessert.

Adding sweet potato to your brownies means you’ll reap all the nutritional benefits found in the sweet potato with every bite you take.

We’re talking about nearly 700 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A. Loads of health-boosting antioxidants, to keep your skin looking amazing and your insides glowing too. Lower inflammation and cholesterol levels may also be yours, not to mention that sweet potatoes are absolutely delicious!

Another key ingredient in the brownie recipe is avocado. Not only are they loaded with all the right kinds of fats, so they impart a certain creaminess in baked goods, but they too are loaded with nutrition.

Why not have your brownies and eat something good for you too? Now you can!
