(Sweet Potato) Fudge Brownies

Brownie Batter
 ¾ cup cooked, peeled, and mashed sweet potato
 ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
 1 cup almond butter
  cup maple syrup
  cup almond flour
 1 tsp vanilla
 ½ cup chocolate chips
 1 tsp baking soda
  tsp salt
Chocolate Glaze (optional)
 ¼ cup Greek yogurt (or coconut yogurt if non-dairy)
 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
 2 tbsp coconut oil
 ¼ cup white or dark chocolate chips
 1 tsp maple syrup

1

Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper or grease the pan well.

2

In a medium sized bowl, mix together all your wet ingredients: the mashed sweet potatoes, vanilla extract, and almond butter.

3

In a separate bowl, mix together all your dry ingredients: the cocoa powder, almond flour, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips.

4

Pour dry ingredients into the wet bowl and mix until evenly distributed.

5

Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth it out so it lays evenly.

6

Bake for 20 minutes. When it comes out, let it cool and harden (it will still be soft once cooled, but hard enough to pick up without it falling apart).

7

While the brownies cool, make your frosting.

8

Melt chocolate chips and whisk in the coconut oil, cocoa powder, yogurt, and maple syrup. Once combined, spread over brownies and enjoy!
