Delicious, Flourless Sweet Potato Brownies That Are 100% Gluten And Dairy Free

loading...

Baking is one of my most cherished hobbies. I often find myself baking unhealthy treats, which is something I’ve tried to slow down on. Instead of quitting the kitchen for good, I’ve been looking for healthier alternative recipes that aren’t full of outrageously expensive ingredients. 

It’s not always easy to find these healthy recipes, but whenever I find one that’s actually delicious, I need to talk about it! The newest addition to my roster of AMAZING healthy recipes is this sweet potato brownie recipe. It’s moist, paleo, vegan, gluten-free, and deeeee-licious! This recipe uses natural sweeteners that are WAY better for you than artificial ones. What else makes it so healthy?

Sweet Potato

Naturally, Sweet And Improves Regulation of Blood Sugar

If you’re trying to cut down on sugar, the sweetness of sweet potato may fool you into believing it’s bad for your pancreas; however, sweet potatoes improve blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes, regardless of their seemingly high Glycemic Index (GI). 

Anti-Inflammatory Benefits

Anthocyanin (what makes a sweet potato orange) is full of anti-inflammatory health benefits. These benefits are found in brain and nerve tissue throughout the body.

Vitamins and Minerals

Sweet potatoes are FULL of vitamins A and C (which makes them great for your immune system). They also have vitamin B6, B1, B2, and B3.

Sweet potatoes are also full of manganese, copper, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber; all of which work together to keep your blood, digestion, and whole body healthy.
