Sweet Potato & Banana Brownies

Who knows the feeling of wanting something sweet after a savory meal?

Just imagine having these delicious brownies sitting in your fridge ready an prepped to satisfy your sweet cravings. These sweet potato and banana brownies are so chocolaty and rich in flavor, you will have a hard time believing that they’re not so bad for you either.


Sweet Potatoes…

…are an excellent source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C.

…their vitamin D helps build healthy bones.

…they contain iron and support a healthy immune system.

…good source of mag­nesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral.

…help ward off cancer and protect against the effects of aging.


Both sweet potatoes and bananas are high in potassium and they do not cause blood sugar spikes. Banana is also a natural sweetener.

You can easily substitute the sugar in this recipe with more organic protein powder or a little more oats and a few drops of stevia. As long as you keep the wet ingredients and dry ingredients ratio the same.

There are almost no more excuses not to make them and you will be surprised how nobody could tell their actual ingredients because all you taste is chocolate brownie to the max! Hmmm…

The homemade choco sauce/glaze is absolutely optional. The brownies will taste just as good with these dairy free chocolate chips only ↓

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 365 F (185 C). Line 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil.

  3. In the meantime place sunflower seeds and oats in blender or food processor and blend until powdery.
  4. Add bananas, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon and milk and pulse until it's a smooth batter.
  5. When potatoes have cooled off a little, peel the skin off and cut into big chunks. Add to blender/ food processor and pulse again until everything is well combined.
  6. Prepare chocolate sauce by mixing all sauce ingredients in a small bowl.*
  7. Fill mixture into baking dish and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into brownie-size pieces and glaze with homemade chocolate sauce. Voilá!
