Finally! Healthy Brownies For Pregnancy Cravings :)

Being healthy is hard sometimes. I love brownies, but I know refined sugars are not good for my body or my precious growing baby. I adapted this recipe from Theroastedroot.net. Their recipe is good, but I did not want to use maple syrup (refined sugar), I added some grass-fed butter instead of coconut oil, and switched coconut flour for protein powder!


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large sweet potato roasted and mashed, about 1-1/2 cups
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 1/3 cup softened Grass-fed butter
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup granulated Erythritol
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons Protein powder of choice (I use Orgain Peanut butter)
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
  • 2/3 cup Dark Chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes, poke a few fork holes in it and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour. Once they are baked, let them cool slightly remove the skin and mash with a fork. Reduce Heat to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment paper, or muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  3. Set aside chocolate chips for the end. Using separate bowls for wet and dry, mix together dry ingredients until blended. Then mix together wet ingredients until well blended using a mixer or food processor. Add in the dry ingredients and continue to mix until smooth.
  4. stir in chocolate chips or chopped nuts if desired.
  5. Pour into baking dish or muffin pan. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes. After the time is up turn off the oven and let them sit for 5 more minutes. *Don’t bother testing them to see if the toothpick or utensil comes out dry because it won’t, it needs time to cool.
  6. Let them rest for about 15 minutes before eating! ENJOY 🙂
