Healthy Sweet Potato Brownies

Here’s a common baking conundrum: You want to bake brownies, but you dread the temptation of eating the entire batch. Oh, and one other thing: You don’t want to share.

We’ve found a healthy compromise.

In case you didn’t know, Ella Mills is the queen of healthy brownies. She’s the face of the popular U.K.-based blog (which is now verging on an empire) called Deliciously Ella. She famously cooked her way out of illness with a healthy diet she created for herself, and now she shares her recipes with the rest of us.

Her recipe for sweet potato brownies has always been wildly popular, but now she’s topped it with an updated version that’s gooier, sweeter and frosted.

There’s no flour, butter or table sugar in this recipe. Instead, these brownies are made with sweet potatoes, dates, ground almonds, coconut oil and raw cacao powder (as opposed to conventional cocoa powder), all of which are nutritional powerhouses.

Check out the recipe here, and find more like it in Mills’ latest cookbook, Natural Feasts.
