I never really used sweet potatoes in my dishes… and if I ever had them, they were mashed and served with butter lol. Never would I have imagined having them as a “sweet potato toast” topped with fruit, nut butter, chocolate, and guacamole… or as sweet potato smoothies for breakfast!
So I was totally mind-blown when I realized this magical orange superfood can be transformed into the gooiest, fudgiest, and the most chocolaty sweet potato brownies!
Yep, BROWNIES! I kid you not!!!
Yet another delicious way to enjoy this amazing superfood! The beloved sweet potato is an excellent source of vitamin A and C, both vital for supporting immune function and protect cells against aging and disease. Plus, it’s packed with energy-supporting B vitamins and minerals, including potassium which lowers blood pressure and reduces strain on your heart!
