real food. real life.
I found this recipe on the Clean Eating Magazine website a while ago, but it seems they've removed it. I've made this recipe more times that I can count for parties, celebrations, gifts - everyone loves them! Even those sweet potato haters! :) However, nut butter is pretty crucial to it, so unfortunately if you have nut allergy - my apologies. You are truly missing you.. :(
Make these tonight - I bet you can't eat just one!
Total Time: 30 minutes
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter (I use dairy & soy free Earth Balance or Coconut Butter, you could use Coconut Oil)
1 cup maple syrup
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup peeled, cooked, mashed sweet potato
2/3 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp vanilla
Optional: chopped walnuts to put on top, or any nut
What to do:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Grease square baking pan.
2) Mix Dry and Wet ingredient separately. Then combine, pouring wet into dry. A mixer helps to combine it into a wet batter.
3) Pour into greased baking pan. Sprinkle with walnuts, if using. Bake for around 25 minutes, depending on oven. Make sure a toothpick comes up dry to make sure it's done! Cut into squares and eat 'em up!
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
