Baking is just one of my most cherished avocations. I frequently find myself baking unhealthy treats, which is something I’ve attempted to slow down on. Rather than ceasing the kitchen for good, I’ve been looking for more healthy substitute recipes that aren’t full of outrageously high-priced ingredients.
It’s not always simple to find these recipes that are healthful, but I should talk about it I find one that’s truly flavorful! The newest addition to my roster of AMAZING wholesome recipes is this sweet potato brownie recipe. It’s moist, paleo, vegan, gluten free, and deeeee licious! This recipe uses natural sweeteners that are WAY better for you than artificial ones. What makes it so healthy?
NATURALLY, SWEET AND IMPROVES MANAGEMENT OF BLOOD SUGAR
If you’re trying to cut down on sugar, the sweetness of sweet potato may mislead you into believing it’s awful for your pancreas; however, sweet potatoes enhance blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes, regardless of their apparently high Glycemic Index (GI)
Anthocyanin (what makes a sweet potato orange) is full of antiinflammatory health benefits. These benefits are observed in nerve and brain tissue throughout the body
VITAMINS AND MINERALS
Sweet potatoes are FULL of vitamins A and C (which makes them excellent for your immune system). Additionally they have B1, vitamin B6, B2, and B3
Sweet potatoes are also full of manganese, copper, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber; all of which work together to keep your blood, digestion, and entire body healthy.
DID YOU UNDERSTAND
Maple syrup features 54 antioxidants that help prevent diseases brought on by free radicals such as CANCER and DIABETES? Astounding!
