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 a 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!
For something different they're also nice with walnuts added in! Give them a go and see what you think!
