Why Your Brownies Need Sweet Potatoes
You might be confused about how sweet potatoes could play a role in a homemade brownie recipe. Do they make the brownies taste like vegetables? Will the brownies be the wrong texture? Worst of all, will anyone know that there are sweet potatoes in these brownies?!
The answer is no! In fact, these sweet potatoes are one of the secret weapons in this brownie recipe. Adding the vegetable means you’ll get all the benefits of sweet potato nutrition each time you take a bite out of these brownies.
I’m talking nearly 700 percent of your daily value of vitamin A and tons of antioxidants, which keep your skin looking awesome. They also lower inflammation and cholesterol levels — plus, sweet potatoes taste great!
But these sweet potato brownies have another secret ingredient: avocados. Benefit rich avocados are a favorite food, and I love them in baked goods as well. They add healthy fats, protein and a super creamy texture. And no, avocados won’t turn these brownies green!
