3 Ingredient Healthy Brownie Recipe

Holidays are hard with all of the sweet treats filled with refined sugars, gluten, butter and shortening, dairy, and everything else. On Thanksgiving, I wanted to find a guilt-free dessert recipe that wouldn’t leave me feeling heavy or with a stomach ache. A few Pinterest searches and some modifications later, I found something that completely satisfied my sweet tooth AND was actually good for me, and it was a hit amongst the crowd too. Major bonus points for both of those! The main ingredient is sweet potato, so it’s a great source of potassium and vitamin A. Get a good dose of veggies in your chocolatey dessert. What a holiday dessert win.

KenzieMFitness Sweet Potato Brownie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes

  • Heaping 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips (I used this kind. It’s made with only three ingredients and is free of all major allergens)

  • 1 cup of almond flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Prick sweet potatoes and cut off both ends. Bake for 45 minutes or until potatoes are fully cooked. Let cool enough to handle, but still warm. Remove skins.

  3. Mix sweet potatoes, chocolate chips, and almond flour in a bowl until chocolate is melted, potatoes are mashed, and there is a uniform, smooth consistency.

  4. Cover a brownie pan in parchment paper and press batter into pan. Place in fridge or freezer for one hour. Cut into squares and serve. Makes 12 brownies.

*Store in fridge/freezer

**Since the main ingredient is sweet potato, the brownie has more of a fudgey texture rather than a cakey texture. If you’re used to eating gluten-free, this will be of no surprise to you.
