This recipe does something special. Instead of just ignoring your craving you are giving into it… in the healthiest way! This recipe is kicking with anti-inflammatory benefits that will boost your health and protect you from disease. It will also prevent you from getting an upset stomach because it’s free of dairy and gluten. Plus you are getting a superfood (sweet potatoes) in a dessert.

This is a kicking recipe that will keep you full because it is packed with fiber. It is also amazing for your immune system, preventing cancer and heart disease. See what all these ingredients do below and you’ll see why this is not your average dessert recipe. We can’t even call this a dessert because it’s so healthy!

Health Benefits

  • Coconut oil is high in saturated fats so it is perfect for preventing heart disease and high blood pressure. It even helps convert the bad cholesterol into the good kind that our body needs.
  • Coconut oil has a number of antioxidants which decreases inflammation. This makes it a natural cure for Alzheimer’s.
  • The fatty acids in coconut oil supply our brains with energy. This is extremely beneficial for those with neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s.
  • Coconut oil and sweet potatoes are packed with fiber which helps us feel full and satisfied. This is perfect for those trying to lose weight or maintain their weight. This is also extremely beneficial for those with diabetes because it helps us regulate our weight.
  • Sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin B6 which helps our body prevent cancer. They are high in Vitamins C, D and A which are amazing for our immune system, skin, vision and bone health.
  • Sweet potatoes also do not cause sugar spikes. Despite their sweetness, sweet potatoes don’t cause a spike of sugar in our bloodstream like most foods with the same level of sweetness.

This recipe won’t cause inflammation because of the replacement of gluten and grains with almond flour and coconut flour. It also removes dairy which is a sensitivity that many of us experience. This recipe is the perfect substitute for those of us looking to lose weight. Taste why you should already be eating these moist and chocolatey sweet potatoes blondies.
