Sweet Potato Brownies

This weekend didn’t feel like a weekend. Probably because I was stuck inside for most of it. It snowed like 3 feet. Not really, probably like 16 inches, but I’m pretty sure my car only comes 5 inches off the ground, no it’s not a ghetto low rider, well maybe, but I seriously couldn’t even pull onto the street. I spent 30 minutes cleaning off my car to only make it 2 feet into the street. Ok, that was an exaggeration. I made it like 4 inches into the street. So my friend Sergio had to take me under his wing and drive me everywhere. I love feeling 15 again. Relying on others to grocery shop, work, and workout is really fulfilling.

But the weekend still turned out pretty fun. Laura, Sergio and I played the 3 best friends card and did everything together. We went to breakfast together, went grocery shopping together, then helped each other pick out outfits. Well Sergio sat there and rolled his eyes as I took 12 shirts out of my closet. I hate dressing up. My PaleOMG shirts are way easier to sport. And my boobs are way more comfortable in sports bras. You just can’t always wear a sports bra with real people clothes. Dumb.

see, even the guys are sporting the tanks. PaleOMG shirts help you set PRs, it’s just fact

So I wore my big girl bra to a show we went to see downtown. We saw Passion Pit or Passion Pit’s DJ or a person from Passion Pit. I don’t really know. I think I’ve heard like 2 Passion Pit songs so I didn’t really know what to expect. But I was pleasantly surprised by feeling like an old fart. The venue was bumping with teenagers who were excited to get out of their parents house and be able to dry hump while on hallucinogenic drugs. What better way to spend your Saturday night eh?!?! Drugs are weird. Teenagers making out while trying to dance to some kind of beat is weirder.

Guess what else I did this weekend?! Sweated my ass off while shoveling our sidewalk. Maybe we shouldn’t have waited until it was complete ice slush. And when I say we, I mean me. Laura sat and watched. And took pictures. I did an overhead squat with a shovel just to be really creative and original. I should send that pic into the main site. I’M SURE they would totally use it. Wanna see it?! Sh*t yeah you do.

I’m watching Dirty Dancing. I love watching movies that I’ve seen a hundred times. They get more corny every time I watch them. This guy just walked up to Baby and said ‘This danish is pure protein”….like what? Missing some of those lines in movies makes me really develop of disappointment in myself. A line like THAT and all I remember is ‘Nobody puts Baby in the corner’?? That’s stupid. You disappoint me JB.

OH!!! And I did handstands in my house. No big deal.

holy crap, huge butt. told you it was ginormous

Sweet Potato Brownies

  • Yield: 5-8 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Time to bake that sweet potato. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees, use a fork to puncture holes all around it, then throw in the oven for 25-30 minutes. (I’m sure you could microwave it, but I like the ole fashioned way. I’m just so ole fashioned)
  2. Once your sweet potato is soft and cooked through, peel off the skin and mash it up in a bowl. And turn your oven down to 350 degrees.
  3. Now add your wet ingredients: eggs, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla to the bowl and mix together.
  4. Then add your dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips.
  5. Mix well to incorporate all that goodness.
  6. Pour into an 8×8 glass baking dish
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  8. Let rest to cool a bit.
  9. Eat those b*tches. Try not to eat them all in one sitting. Like what may have happened in my kitchen….oops.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. j.bauer. Im moving in…that way you dont have to do things like eat all the brownies at once. all parties would benefit. im here for you. clear the extra space.

    1. Perfect. My 5×5 bedroom can always use more people. My teddy bear is already a bit claustrophic but it’s fine. But Casey, ARE YOU CALLING ME FAT?! Kidding. kind of.

  2. You have no idea how you just made Will’s life!

    I think you’ve made my year with these brownies. Can’t wait to try them!

      1. Can I use regualr all purpose flour? I dont have coconut flour, and wanted to try this recipe tonight. I have all the other ingredients.

  3. I’m probably going to fail out of grad school, and it’s going to be your fault. Why? Oh, only because I’m supposed to be reading about word fluency, but instead I’m reading about sweet potato brownies. Word fluency, or brownies? The choice is obvi….but I doubt my professors will agree. Amateurs. Oh and I also hate wearing big girl bras. And real clothes. I think all pants should come with a roll over yoga waistband so I can hide my muffin tops and perpetual food baby with ease and grace. Just sayin’!

    1. If you fail out, maybe you can just become a cook instead? Sounds like a good plan to me. I love fold over waistbands. Jeans without them (so any sort of non maternity jeans) suck

  4. I kind of regret finding your blog…I’ve been reading it for almost an hour now at work. Who is productive on Mondays anyway, tho? Making these brownies this week!

  5. Brownies…finally, my favorite food. If only I had this recipe last night before I gave in and had a bowl of ice cream with crumbled thin mint girl scout cookies. Terrible idea. Been following your blog for about a month….DON’T EVER STOP!

  6. Dang, girl! You are a BOSS! When you said you were gonna make these, I thought I’d have to wait at least a couple weeks for a recipe to be posted…you rock!!! I finish Whole 30 in SIX days and these are def gonna be one of my first treats! I cannot WAIT. Btw, I heard shovels are totally the new barbells. 😉

  7. Can’t wait to try these! I’ve made 4-5 of your recipes and they have all been awesome! I’m at CrossFit Modig in Lone Tree, CO…not too far from you.
    How about some nut butter cookies please?

  8. These are going into the oven RIGHT NOW. Only I had to double the amount of cocoa powder cuz mama can’t get enough chocolate flavoring. The batter is delicious!

      1. Awesome! Surprisingly sweet. Doubling the cocoa powder helped disguise them so that my daughter was tricked into believing they were unhealthier than they really are, which made her like them. I like to play mind games with my kids.

  9. I’m starting my Whole30 next Monday….which means I obviously have to make these brownies this weekend before I start. I love the overhead shovel squat; I like to do back squats with our 45lb bags of dog food 🙂

  10. these are insane!!!!! made them last night and they are gone! shared them with several gal pals and we all agree… where the f’ have these been all our lives!!!! keep bakin’ baby!!! love this site 🙂

  11. Finishing a 6 week paleo challenge and have this recipe waiting for me. my everyday cchips are en route! Do you do recipe makeovers? I love this, but was wondering if coconut flakes and almond flour could be substitued for the oats. Or are these just way too much sweetness? –is that even possible when you have given yourself the all clear to indulge a little 🙂

    Breakfast cookie
    Ingredients: 1.5 cups of oats , 2-3 super rippened bananas , 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce, handful of craisins and cinnamon. Just throw everything together, mix it up pretty well, throw it on a baking sheet at 350 for about 35 minutes.

  12. Yes. Thanks for this brownie recipe. I have been craving chocolate and I don’t want to cheat on my paleo diet just yet….I’ve only been on it for about 3 weeks.

    I made some paleo-approved chocolate cookies and they weren’t that great…

    I will be making this recipe in the next couple of days.

    Thanks,
    Lawanda

  13. Stumbled onto your website just this week. Tried these today and they tasted yummy! Only problem I seemed to have was that they seemed like a cross between a brownie and a pie in consistency…any suggestions on what I may have done or need to do to make these all brownie like?
    Thanks- will most definitely be visiting this site again!!! 🙂

      1. Kind of mushy in some parts- like sweet potato or pecan pie- stiff but mushy. Make sense? I needed a fork to eat mine…

      2. I am very much a beginner when it comes to cooking and some of these ingredients are über new to me. It seemed almost as if it wasn’t fully cooked- even though a toothpick came out clean…?

          1. I’m not giving up on these just yet! I’m thinking maybe I had an oven issue like Tracy except I didn’t cook mine beyond the time given in the directions? Will try again!!! Still, loving the site so keep up the great work!!!

  14. My boyfriend is not the biggest fan of coconut flour (and after reading your most recent post, I’m afraid this fact would make you not a fan of his :)). Could I sub almond flour for the coconut flour? Do you think the recipe would require the same amount?

    1. I want to say yes BUT you would probably need to use more almond flour and I can’t guarantee the same texture when you bake it. But it’s worth a try!!

  15. Holy moly, these brownies were a taste sensation! DA BOMB!! SO delish, thank you for all of your awesome culinary creations. I was wondering, thoe. How much sweet tater did you use? I used a medium sized fella and my brownies took about 2 hours to cook. Even after that they were still a tad smushy. BUT still incredibly awesome. I hovered over the stove and ate just a tad under half the pan. Even burned my tongue a little. That’s how good they were, I didn’t even care to give them time to cool off. Yum! I had to take the rest of the pan into the box this morning and share the goodness. Sorry, ramble over!
    Thank you again, all of your recipes are truly great! 🙂

    1. 2 hours!??! Holy balls. I used 1 medium sweet potato so that’s very strange you ran into that issue! Ovens are stupid. Blame it on the oven. Glad you still liked it though!

    2. Mine weren’t done in 25 minutes either – but I wasn’t sure if it was just the texture of sweet potato brownies (having never made them before) so I left them in a little bit longer, but not two hours. They were very very gooey. I figured there was no egg to make us sick, but I’ll definitely try for longer or a hotter oven or a combination of the both for next time. My friend asked for the recipe so they weren’t all that bad! 🙂 Thank you!

  16. Just made these….GENIUS!!! Such a winner, making everyone in my gym make them too, was going to share, but yup they suddenly disappeared.

  17. I just ate half the pan and I don’t know if I can resist the other half…. and if I am being honest, it’s more like a quarter of the pan is left.

    I am going to have to wear a maternity top for the next few days to hide the evidence of my gluttony and my ability to not share. THEY WERE AMAZING!

    Is eating two pans in one considered overkill????

    1. I have a batch of these in my Flavorwave oven right now. I’m crossing my fingers since I’ve never made brownies in the Flavorwave(my real oven idoesn’t work) and because the batter was very thick. It’s thick enough that the peaks that formed when I was spreading it into the pan never smoothed out on their own. Is it supposed to be that thick? Next time you make them, would you mind measuring out how much mashed sweet potato one sweet potato actually is? They vary so widely in size. Now that that’s out of the way, the batter was delish! I hope my kids like them. It’s our first post Whole30 dessert. Mmmmmmm! My neighbor’s kids loved them when their mom made them so the odds that mine will like these are good. Thank you! I’ll come back and rate them after I munch a few. 🙂

  18. Just was introduced to your website today…how fun & exciting!!
    I’m just curious if you know what your blood type is? I see that you use a lot of coconut oil. I don’t feel good when I use it. 🙁

    I’m making these brownies NOW for the weekend. Hopefully they will satisfy my husband’s sweet tooth. I have very little control if sugar is in the house, so I’m excited to find your healthier options!

  19. Made these today and had great reviews all the way around.. definitely the best recipe for paleo brownies yet! thank you!

  20. I usually stay away from paleo ‘baked goods’ cause I find they always disappoint… OMG, not these! I’m the only paleo in a house of 12 people and every single one of my SAD roommates could not get over how amazing these were! Thanks for such a (relatively) guilt-free recipe! ^^ (ps: I subbed the honey with about 1/2 c of applesauce instead and they were still amazing)

    1. That’s how I always felt with paleo baked goods too, they were always a disappointment to me so that’s why I love when I find something I like! And the applesauce is a FANTASTIC idea!!

  21. Holy crap these are good. Dont know whats better the batter or the brownie!!!
    Getting ready to make Bacon beef meatballs with mango sauce. So excited for them.
    Also made today, fudgy brownies which my 2 year old loves. Granola which is an all around hit wih everyone. Baked it a bit longer and it is now more grab and go granola, so good!!!
    And breakfast was Mexican hash…cant eat that to much. Thanks Juli!!!

  22. Holy delicious. I made these today and they’re sensational. Thankfully I committed a few to a friend of mine, which has helped me in my quest to not eat the ENTIRE pan. You are good!

  23. I cut honey to 1/4 cup and doubled the cocoa. I measured my sweet potato and a half-pound potato made 3/4 cup mashed. No idea if that’s the amount you used but it turned out fine. These won’t last through tomorrow – especially w/ 3 little munchkins begging for them. So glad I picked your recipe for my first paleo brownie experience! Btw, love the snow shovel squat!

    1. Thank you Kristina for measuring the sweet potato. I get sweet potatoes from a farmer and they are all different sizes.

  24. Hey I am fairly new to the whole Paleo way of things..you have some great reciepes!..I made these brownies and they are fantastic!…so good..I look forward to making more of your reciepes

  25. Can’t wait to make these badboys. As soon as I can keep a package of Enjoy Life Choc. Chips in my house long enough to bake something with them, this is what I’m making. (They usually get inhaled raw on the drive back from the store.) Pathetic addiction I know.

  26. I am on my third pan of these brownies in three days. Should I mention I live alone and I didn’t share any of them? Pure gluttony! They are so dense and fudgy and decadent you’d never guess how healthy they are. Of course, eating three pans in three days probably cancels out any health benefits. I found that a 1 cup to 1 1/4 cups of sweet potato worked perfectly and I also used 8 tsps of cocoa.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I love your blog. Of course, now I have to add sweet potatoes to the list of things I can’t keep in the house because I have no control.

  27. Made these tonight and they were awesome! The challenge now is policing the kitchen so husband does not gobble them up all in one night. Thanks, your recipes have made paleo enjoyable.

  28. Wow! Loved these!!! Made them tonight for my kids to have at school for the valentine’s party this week. It is so hard to have kids in school and find good paleo recipes they will be happy with, but your have been great!

    I taught my son how to make the apple pie nachos…we had them four times last week!!!!!

    Thank you ~ keep the recipes coming!

  29. Here’s the deal. Your blog is AWESOME. I’ve made a few recipes so far and they were Awesome. The fact that you made me have the will power to go Paleo completely is Awesome. And now, my husband who is at sea in the Coast Guard can have a box of brownies to enjoy that are Paleo and delicious. Thank you! You are (guess……) Awesome!! (And my husband will say the same I’m sure!)

  30. Hi Juli~ I have been Paleo for over a year now and this brownie recipe is by far the BEST treat recipe I have found. Wow! I made them thinking they would be desert for my family’s Valentine dinner tomorrow…wrong…they are gone already! Made your red pepper dip for the superbowl and yummmyyy too! Love your blog :):)

      1. I frequently visit his site as well. Making more of your brownies by popular request right now 🙂 My husband asks “what makes them taste like chocolate”…hahaha…I can’t help but laugh at him. He assumes all of my paleo creations are going to be made with some odd ingredient 🙂 He just rolls with the yumminess!!

  31. i feel obligated to go watch DD for the millioneth time now because ‘danish is a protein’,,,– whhhaaat? i clearly have been missing the true grit of the movie! 😉 your blog might just be the best one i read…and that is for multiple reaons. keep it up — i love it!

  32. p.s. no sweet pot in my house as i eat it obsessively these days but really want these brownies, oh, five minutes ago and dont think it can wait for a store run…. think i’ll sub pumpkin in. and yes, i probably have an (un) healthy obsession (addiction?) with Good Life chips, but a girl with no vices is utterly boring, so i have rationalized it well….

  33. ugh. last comment from me. i am boring myself. by good life i meant enjoy life chips. but you already knew that because you’re probably as cool as me. 🙂

  34. Made these for Valentine’s Day and they were so, so good. Even my somewhat picky 6-year-old scarfed them down. I threw in a handful of chopped pecans cuz we like nutty, and baked them in a greased & cocoa powder-dusted 24-cup muffin pan to make them less crumbly for school lunches. Thanks for this delicious recipe.

  35. So yeah, OMG. I made these 2 nights ago and they wre freakin’ amazing. It was really hard to not eat all of it by myself in one sitting. I had a friend try them last night and she said they were so good that they tasted like “real” brownies. You bet I’ll be making these again. Thank you for making my paleo transition less painful! I wasn’t sure if raw honey was paleo, but I don’t really care either way anymore… 🙂

  36. So I just found this blog, which is awesome! I made these brownies last night…(didn’t follow step #9 because they are almost gone and totally worth it). Let’s be honest. I didn’t really follow step #8 either because they were still steaming when I was trying to eat them.

  37. OMG… well, a few days later, but I made the brownies and I … as always, was not disappointed. DELICIOSO…. ty ty ty <3 I have always been a chocolate lover and this is awesome.. ROCK STAR!!!!! that's what you are 🙂

  38. I love your site! This will be my first paleo recipe to try this weekend, plus one of the crockpot recipes. I begin my paleo journey on Sunday!

  39. Just made a batch and they smelled too yummy to wait to cool, just ate one square out of 16, I think my kids will love them too, which will be awesome….if there are any left by the time they get home from school!!

    Love your sense of humour too!!

  40. Juli,

    These look ridiculously delicious. Sweet potatoes may be one of the greatest foods on the planet and I’m happy to share this obsession with someone.

    Alan

  41. These are the SICKEST (in a good way) brownies ever!! I tried to take your advice and not eat them all in one sitting but let me tell you…they were gone, in like 10 minutes!! Love your website, keep up the great recipes!

  42. Def skipped the cooling process- warm brownies are my fave. DELICIOUS! I should’ve done a better job mashing my sweet potato, but I love sweet potato, so I didn’t mind getting a chunk or two in a bite!

  43. So I’m new to Paleo (Feb 1) and this recipe gave me hope in all things delicious. Even my coworkers who aren’t Paleo approved of this tastiness. You may claim to be a terrible baker but this proves you very wrong!

  44. I failed, if you want to call it that, and ate the whole batch in like 2 days. By myself. I added walnuts because I love nutz and they were really good in the mix! I may or may not stalk every recipe/rant you post. Thanks for helpin my crossfit/paleo transition. Creeeepy girl crush, sorry not sorry.

  45. Hi Juli-
    I’ve been lurking around here for a while but finally got around to posting, mainly because this video has been going around my gym and if you haven’t watched it you need to: shit crossfit girls say: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFhndH1RdEk

    and i’m putting it below this recipe, because the #1 quote I would add to the video is something like “it’s okay that i just ate a whole pan of brownies, sweet potatoes are totally paleo…”

    1. Lol yeah I’ve definitely said some of the things in the video. I’ve definitely said more things in “shit single girls say” that stuff is right up my alley

  46. Just made these. Mine kinda looked like poo but i think that’s just because i’m a sloppy cook.Yummy poo at least! You’re hilarious, love the humor, love the food, keep it comin!!! xoxo

  47. These are amazing. I have been searching for a great Paleo brownie and finally found it. You are a genius!! Now if I can just find the DUs and HSPUs I have been looking for.

  48. Ok, so this might sound weird, but if you eat these brownies with goat cheese, it tastes like chocolate cheesecake. Freaking awesome. They are also awesome without the cheese. I am really struggling with the decision of whether to eat the rest of the pan or just go to bed.

  49. Holy shit these are awesome. Just made my 2nd Whole30 a Whole20 cause they’ve been taunting me since I came across the recipe a week ago. Ah well…I don’t even feel like a failure cause they were totally worth it! Thanks 🙂

  50. Sorry if this has always been asked – 1 sweet potato – do you know an approximate weight? Here in Aussie our sweet spuds can vary immensly in size. ..and did you use golden (kumara) or white?
    Thanks!

  51. AMAZING! Another recipe that is the bombdiggity! My daughters and I made these today and they are soooooo good. Self control…self control! I could seriously shovel the entire pan down my gullet! No joke. My oldest daughter said “sadly, we have to share these with everybody else in the house”. This coming from the girl who didn’t even want to make them because she was afraid they would taste like a sweet potato!

  52. Made these today except I made some alterations based on what I had in my cupboard and the fact I am die hard coconut HATER…
    I used canola oil(I know… Please don’t yell) and I used almond flour. I made a double batch… Good stuff.. I am not an avid baker so I did not have any idea how the consistency should have been. So my end product ended up too moist. To the point that I have to scoop them out. Still taste awesome…

    Love reading your site!!!! Get Sum!

  53. I just started Paleo as well as CrossFit 3 weeks ago and I have to say that I am feeling (amazingly) sore from working out as well as satisfied that I found recipes on your site that are helping me eat better.Granted I do need to make better choices on what to have for dinner as I made these AWESOME sweet potato brownies. I couldn’t resist! I couldn’t let such a yummy and “healthy” meal go to waste, so I had to eat the rest… Well it was either that or let my dogs eat it and well everyone knows chocolate is a no no for dogs. ;o) Anyway, thank you for posting this recipe. Oh and you must post more dance videos.

  54. Have you ever been totally lazy and tried canned sweet potato instead of baking one??? Want to make these immediatley and do not have sweet potatoes!!!

  55. My first adventure in paleo baking treats & these were incredible. I made some saturday & ate with some larry&luna’s coconut bliss…soooo good!

  56. OMG!!! These brownies are absolutely AMAZING!!!! These are better than any brownie from a box. I will definitely be making these again!

  57. Hi,
    I already asked this but it appears to be the only post that didn’t get a response. Sweet Potatoes here vary from around 400g-1000g (15-30+ oz?). Could you please tell me approximately how much sweet potato goes into this recipe (even if it is in a cups measure)? Thanks.

    1. I’m so sorry Leah!! Not sure how I didn’t see that one! I’m guessing a sweet potato are 16-24oz should suffice! Around 1.5 cups or so 🙂 sorry again about that!!

      1. Thanks! I made them once and it didn’t seem quite right, I suspect I didn’t have enough …so will try a bigger sweet spud next time. I also meant to clarify if you used Kumara (orange) or the white sweet potatoes …I used orange o.O

  58. this is the most epic recipe ever. I made small modifications for the fact that I’m allergic to coconut and didn’t feel like a trip to the hospital. but WOW

  59. Dear Juli without an E,
    Another rad recipe. I made them to bring to a friend that gave up flour for lent but me thinks I’ll just hold on to this batch… Side note, your oven must be more elite than mine. My potato needed twice the cooking time. I hate mediocre ovens.
    Love, Julie with an E

  60. So I loved these. I have no idea what coconut oil is, so I used regular (sorry). I also forgot to buy chocolate chips, whoops. I have failed miserably at black bean brownies a few times, so I was a little leery to try another different brownie.
    I ate the entire pan this weekend, and didn’t feel bad about it.

  61. Made these last night for my daughter and they are almost gone! She loved them, and I did, too. Then my husband told me that he spread one with some Kerrygold salted butter, and I thought he was crazy, but OMG, it is delicious! I can’t make these for a while or I’ll just eat the whole pan (and maybe share…hmmm).

  62. You are a brownie goddess!!!!!!! I can’t believe how yummy and healthy these are 🙂 I became so excited when, about a year ago, I realized that treats can still be extremely rich in nutrients when made with the right ingredients. I made these last night, and there are three left… and they are calling me…… So stoked I stumbled upon your blog, you have some fantastic looking recipes. I’m thinking I’ll try the caramel pecan bars next…

  63. I am SO excited to try these next weekend (yay for going home for Easter) with my mom. Even doubly excited because my grocery store just started carrying Enjoy Life chips! Also going to make your banana bread (if it makes it to) french toast and the caramel pecan bars. Oh over indulgence.. But I will enjoy all of it. And leave any leftovers at my moms so I don’t eat them =O Going to try to corrupt my parents to your roasted bacon brussell sprouts, still deciding which of your awesome meals to make.

  64. Just made these brownies. They are fantastic. Am going to increase the cocoa next time and maybe add some pecans!

  65. These are in the oven right now. I’m new to paleo (not going whole hog, but intrigued), but dang! the batter was fantastic. I’m impatiently watching my oven timer.

  66. Your site should be called PaleOMF’ingG. For reals. These brownies are THE business. I want to kiss you. Wanna make out? 😉

  67. Holy delicious!! These were amazinng!!! I couldn’t find coconut flour so I used almond flour and they turned out amazing. You are now a favorite of mine and my gyms!

  68. Paleo for about 2 weeks and already my life has become boring..until I found this site. Love your personality and can’t wait to try the food. This weekend I’m going to make these b*tches and hoard them for myself, especially if they are as good as everyone is saying they are. From the comments, I have no doubt.

  69. Okay you need to know that I have made these brownies twice now, once for a big dinner party and once for my own birthday, and I am totally obsessed with them. I’ve also made your ginger-honey pork (for the same party! I’m secretly trying to turn all my friends paleo) and I pretty much read your blog all the time. Your recipes are great and I love your writing too. Thanks for the great blog!!

  70. Made these for the first time last night for a cook out today. I went ahead and made a double batch – banking on the fact that these would be irresistible and I would need a double batch so that I would actually have something left to take to the cookout after I succumbed to my inner fat kid (or not so inner, whatever). I was not disappointed. These are amazery. Eating one for breakfast before a run – I think it will be perfect nutritionally as well as a great tone-setter for the day.

    Since trying to do Paleo, I am not used to actually liking the things I cook (boiled chicken breast and steamed broccoli again!?)…but your blog has helped me immensely. I now actually like the healthy food I am eating…who would have thunk? Not this donuts-for-breakfast reformer. Profound thanks 🙂

  71. I made these for the wife today. She loved them!!! ( I thought they were great too!) Thanks for all these great recipe’s Juli, you rock!

  72. Just made this afternoon and WOW!! They are amazing! My daughter keeps asking for more so I know they’re good!
