If you are searching for a brownie recipe that tastes like it’s filled with calories but is in fact super healthy, then look no further.
This recipe is only one of its kinds because it ties together the unique sweetness of the sweet potato for its flavor, instead of other sugar-free alternatives that occasionally have hidden chemicals in them. Sweet potato is a complex carb, so it will discharge energy slowly, meaning you won’t feel hungry and searching for something else to eat almost immediately after.
Sweet potato is a perfect health food as it advances blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes, in spite of their apparently high Glycemic Index (GI). The anthocyanin (the compound that makes a sweet potato orange) in the potato is full of anti-inflammatory health benefits. They are as well filled with vitamins including vitamins A and C, B6, B1, B2, and B3
They are in addition full of nutrients like copper, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber; all of which work mutually to keep your digestion, blood, and whole body healthy.
The maple syrup in this recipe, in addition, encloses 54 antioxidants that help to prevent diseases caused by free radicals, counting diabetes and cancer.
