GFCF Nutritious Brownies: Recipe of the Week

GFCF Nutritious Brownies
This is a great sneaky meal in and of itself for those who have eating issues. Complete with greens, sweet potato, eggs, rice, garbonzo bean… I feel like my daughter is eating real food when she eats these brownies.

2 Sweet Potatoes
1 large handful of Baby Spinach
½ cup Brown Sugar
3 TB Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 TB Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread- original
2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
¾ cup Brown Rice Flour
2 TB Garbonzo Bean Flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 350. Oil a 8×10 baking pan.

Microwave sweet potato until tender and scrap out the potato.

Steam the spinach in 1/4 pure water, puree with the sweet potato until lumps are completely gone.

In large bowl combine the puree, sugar, cocoa powder, margarine, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.

Whisk in eggs.

Add flour, baking powder, and salt into the wet ingredients.

Bake 35-40 minutes.

    Great recipe!

    My husband (who doesn’t like anything ‘healthy’) loved these. As a side, I used Quinoa flour instead of the 2 flours mentioned in the recipe and they turned out great.Thank you!

    Wow, those sound good. 

    Thanks to alternamom for promoting natural alternatives to traditional treatments. Who knew homeopathy could taste so good? Haha.
