Sweet Potatoe Brownies

I'm always looking for low-sugar, somewhat healthy, gluten free, dessert recipes.  This one turned out pretty darn good, and was really easy. It's adapted from this recipe at thestonesoup.com.

Ingredients:

  • 2c almond meal
  • 2c cooked sweet potatoes (I leave the skin on)
  • 1/3 lb dark chocolate (I use the Trader Joe's Pound-Plus 72% dark chocolate)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or your sweetener of choice...)
  • 4 eggs
  • Pinch salt. 

Break the chocolate into chunks and throw it into the food processor w/ the almond meal and grind it into a coarse meal.  Add the sweet potato and butter and process until it's consistent in texture. Ad the eggs, sugar, & salt, blend, and then pour into a buttered baking dish.  Add nuts if desired.

Cook per your preference.... I like to pull it out when it starts to smell good and it still sticks a bit to a knife that's stuck into it.  It still cooks a bit when removed from the oven, and I don't like this kind of thing dried out too much.
