I think its fair to say that alls fair in love and war...until it comes to brownies! While I personally tend to have more a savoury tooth and far less of a sweet one, I have never turned down the offer of a brownie, in fact they're probably my favourite sweet treat.
While would never consider myself to be a whiz in the kitchen, I do make conscious choices of what I buy and do my best to offer my family foods that are prepared in our home and made with love! Many a disaster has taken place in my kitchen, but from time to time I come across a winner and these SWEET POTATO BLONDIES are the bomb!
Not only are they a hit with my family but I've served them up in the studio a few times and always get rave reviews - hence why I am writing this post and sharing the goodness!
If you didn't know already, Sweet potatoes are not only a rich source of fibre, they contain vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium plus they're a good source of most of our B vitamins and vitamin C. One of the key nutritional benefits of sweet potato is that it is high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed, while the level of beta-carotene does decrease when cooked, in this recipe the sweet potato is boiled which is thought to have higher retention than say roasting, plus cooking sweet potato actually increases the vitamin C content!
If you want to give these a go, the BEST recipe I have tried so far is on Goodie Goodie Lunchbox, I'll usually triple the recipe and freeze some - but be warned, these babies are most delicious straight out of the oven when they're slightly warm! Mmmmmmmm 😋
For something different, they're also nice with walnuts added in - or you could even try them with butterscotch choc drops! Give them a go and see what you think!
