I always love a good recipe that sneaks in vegetables and other nutritious ingredients without sacrificing any of what we all crave. These brownies are inspired by the leftover sweet potato that has been sitting on my counter since last weekend + a strong craving for chocolate! My friend Dave got me interested in Cacao powder and I decided to give it a try in these brownies as well and they turned out GREAT! The best part of these brownies is that they are AMAZING as leftovers straight from the fridge. They take on a fudge like quality and can be enjoyed all week!
1 cup almond flour
½ cup of Cacao Powder (or cocoa powder)
¾ cup of coconut sugar or white sugar
1tsp baking powder
2 flax eggs (2T ground flax + 6T water)
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
¾ cups of chocolate chips (make sure they are vegan)
½ cup coconut oil
½ tsp vanilla extract
⅓ cup creamy almond butter
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato **see notes
*** These brownies are moist and fudgy, they may look like they are not done, but they are! Make sure you let them cool completely before cutting, eating and enjoying.
