Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, skin removed
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flour or oat flour
  • 1 zucchini, grated (optional, but recommended for added moisture)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup raw organic honey

Directions:

Preheat oven to 415 degrees. Bake potatoes for approximately one hour, or until they’re soft. Allow to cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350. Mash sweet potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Add all remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Evenly divide batter into a muffin pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into brownies comes out clean.
