How to make healthy sweet potato brownie
It may seem like a difficult recipe due to all the ingredient but it is actually very simple. You need an oven, a good blender and an oven dish. The blender will do all the work for you.
To make these brownies start by wrapping the sweet potato in aluminium foil. Pre heat the oven to 425℉ /200℃ and bake the sweet potatoes in the oven for about 45 minutes until soft.
You can also boil the sweet potato until soft this will take between 10-20 minutes. However if you boil the sweet potato be careful it does not over cook and go really soft.
You want a certain firmness to the potatoes. That is why I use the oven to let the potatoes go soft. It is slower but you have more control over the firmness of the potato.
Mash the potatoes into a soft puree. Then put the puree in a good blender and add all the ingredients one by one in the blender.
Let it run and turn the ingredients into a smooth mixture. As chocolate and nuts go together perfectly add pecan nuts and chunks of chocolate to make it extra yum.
Put this in a small baking dish and pre heat the oven to 375 ℉/180℃. Line the oven dish with baking paper so it will not stick.
Then it only requires about 30 minutes of oven time before you can take a bite of the most delicious gooey perfect healthy sweet potato chocolate brownie you ever tasted.
Make brownie with other vegetables
It is quite popular to cook with vegetables when baking cakes and sweets. Besides sweet potato you can also make brownies with:
- Black beans
It might be a strange idea to make brownies with any of these vegetables. But believe me none of these brownies will taste like the vegetables. They are all a great substitute for butter.
