Ever the healthy food recipe hacker, of course, I needed to figure out a healthy brownie. Because: duh, brownies! Getting kids to eat healthily is a full-time job and when you can bribe them to eat a healthy dinner, but offering (healthy) brownies at the end of the meal is a win-win! #momwin

Plus, these little buggers are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants! Go ahead, have one for breakfast. I won’t tell. I live guilt-free when I’m eating these paleo sweet potato brownies, that’s for sure!

Let’s break it down: 

Sweet Potatoes: They are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitaminB1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.

Coconut Oil: It’s a very healthy fat; one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.” Its benefits include weight loss, better brain function, skin health, and much more.

Maple Syrup: It contains calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus sodium, potassium, and zinc. Maple syrup also contains the vitamins thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and B6!

Cacao Powder: It contains 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries. It’s the highest plant-based source of iron. It’s full of magnesium, has more calcium than cow’s milk, and is a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant!
