Sweet Potato Brownies

  • 1 sweet potato (about 1 cup worth)
  • 2 scoops Chocolate protein powder (we use Shaklee 180 to keep the calories low & to get he best nutrition)
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • ¼ cp coconut oil, melted (I like Trader Joe's brand)
  • ⅓ cp raw honey
  • ½ cp chocolate chips (my fav is Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips)
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour (can be purchased already made, I have been making my own from unsweetened coconut flakes in my vita-mix) 
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • dash of salt

1. Cook sweet potato, either in oven or in microwave, scoop out the inside, place in bowl smash it up with a fork (approx 1 cup of sweet potato meat will do)
2. Add wet ingredients; coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and whacked eggs, mix it up!
3. Add the dry ingredients; protein powder, coconut flour,  baking powder, cinnamon,salt & chocolate chips, mix well.
4. pour into coconut greased glass 8x8 baking dish, 30-35 minutes @ 425 degrees.
5. Eat slowly as these seem to disappear FAST!
