clean eating sweet potato brownies absolutely delicious, soft, chocolate #dairyfree #vegan #cleaneating
I asked you on my Facebook page which recipe would you like me to put up and the clean eating sweet potato brownies have beaten the 3-ingredients chocolate energy bar. It was very close though! These brownies are soft, moist and have a kind of nutella flavour thanks to the hazelnut meal used in this recipe. Not only is it easy to make and bake, it is really healthy, being dairy and refined sugar free. It’s also high in fibre,  and rich in vitamins and minerals. Let’s not forget to mention the sweet potatoes, which in comparison with the usual white potatoes have more vitamin C, fewer calories, more fiber and fewer total carbs despite more sugar content.

            It’s quite expensive that way, where’s the best place to buy nuts in bulk? Thank You 🙂
