Ultra-Fudgy Sweet Potato Loaf

Looking for a way to satisfy your sweet tooth (teeth)? How about sneaking an extra serving of veggies in with your breakfast? Look no further than this super moist and decadent chocolate sweet potato loaf.

Originally, I had all intentions of making this batter into easy muffins – but our muffin tin was MIA. If you decide you’d like to try that route, muffin wrong with that – go for it! (just decrease baking time to 15 minutes or less)

Seriously friends, this is one of the most satisfying breakfasts I’ve had in a while and I put a lot of emphasis on a good breakfast in my life.

Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups pureed sweet potatoes
  • 1.5 cups oat flour (ground oats)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetend almond milk
  • 1/2-3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds to blend in (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips/crushed almonds to mix in (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Boil 2 medium diced sweet potatoes in a sauce pan for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Remove skin and puree in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sweet potato puree, milk and maple syrup. Add in oat flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and any other add-ins you choose. Combine until dough is thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Place the dough in a greased bread loaf pan and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until fork comes out clean and the top is hardened a bit. It is ok to underbake slightly as it will make for a fudgier loaf. Let cool completely and enjoy topped with nut butter of choice!

looks yummy and sounds yummy however, theres a lot of maple syrup in it which shoots up the sugar /carbs. I was just thinking rather than add maple sugar could you.......??????? could you add a grated granny smith apple in it instead? That would make it very moist and healthier... just thinking about the carbs and esp the sugar content which isnt good for a lot of people. By using an apple it would drop the sugar content down even tho an apple has fructose its a natural sugar.
