A Full Box of Decadence – From the 24-Piece Chocology Collection

In keeping with all of the chocolate celebrations this month, we thought we would gift everyone with a couple of our favorite brownie recipes! The first is a grain-free low-sugar recipe that is to die for. Originally posted by PaleOMG, it is our go to recipe when we want something healthy and sweet.

 

Paleo OMG Brownie

SWEET POTATO BROWNIES

 

 

 

 

 

1 sweet potato
3 eggs, whisked
¼ cup Coconut Oil, melted
⅓ cup raw honey
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons Coconut Flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
½ cup Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

Bake the sweet potato. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees, use a fork to puncture holes all around it, then throw in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

Once your sweet potato is soft and cooked through, peel off the skin and mash it up in a bowl. Turn your oven down to 350 degrees.

 Add your wet ingredients: eggs, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla to the bowl and mix together.

Then add your dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips.

 Mix well.

Pour into an 8×8 glass baking dish.

Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Let rest to cool a bit.

If you’re looking for a decadent, super easy recipe for brownies, our favorite is right off the back of the Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate box. One-bowl brownies are so simple to make; you can be eating this sweet treat within 40 minutes, start to finish!

We substitute chocolate chips in place of nuts (of course we do, we LOVE chocolate). So, if you’re feeling a bit wicked, whip out your ONE bowl and make a batch of these. They’re sure to please all those chocoholics in your family!
