Sweet Potato Brownies

03 Sep

pic9IYePk21 day sugar detox is OVER! I lost about 5lbs and gained a ton of knowledge on how much sugar you can easily eat in a day without even realizing it. So I think overall it was a huge success. I plan on doing it twice a year. Next one starting January 1st to kick off the new year, then again in August. Its funny after its over you’re like… what now? Well luckily for me there is another challenge right around the corner! Its called the “Whole Life Challenge”. Which is basically 8 weeks of being accountable for nutrition, excersice, stretching, vitamins, and there is some extra credit weekly challenges you can do also. I will also be taking measurements, doing a workout that I will test in the beginning and again at the end, and logging in each day on line. I love stuff like this. Its basically eating paleo- but again, no sugar. But this challenge I can have fruits, just limited amounts. Anyone can do this challenge. I am joining as part of Sausalito Crossfit, but anyone can do it. Check it out. www.wholelifechallenge.com

So it starts September 15th for 8 weeks. So that officially gives me 11 more days to make some paleo treats again! This one looks nice and chocolately yummilicious. I told Joe I would make him the Paleo Pecan Carmel bars before I head back down to LA for 5 days this week. He loves those. But these look like they will be good. They are in the oven right now, so I will post pics and results soon!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup enjoy life chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt (woops, I forgot this)
  • I also topped mine with just a sprinkle of coconut shavings

Bake the sweet potato until nice and soft. About 30 mins at 425. In the meantime, combine all your wet ingredients together in your food processor. Eggs, honey, vanilla, and coconut oil. When those are all combined add in your coconut flour, baking soda and powder, and cocoa powder. Mix all these ingredients together. Mash up your cooked sweet potato and slowly add that to the mixer as well. Put your chocolate chips in, mix together and your ready to pour!

Pour into an 8×8 baking dish and sprinkle the top with a few chocolate chips and a little bit of coconut. Let cool for a few minutes and then enjoy. I am now waiting for that moment myself!
