Sweet Potato Ginger Brownies

So what is new in the world of the caveman?  Well that is a good question and I have a not so typical blabbing caveman answer.  Why you ask?  Because I am freezing my paleolithic loin cloth covered butt off in Philadelphia.  I love how the day before I flew here it was 65 degrees and then the morning I land it decides to bless me with a blizzard.  By definition it was not a blizzard but for my California and before that Hawaii climatized booty, it was freezing and the 1/2 inch of snow that melted in 30 minutes seemed like a blizzard.  I was even checking the car for an emergency kit in case I got stranded.  Didn’t find one, but I did have plenty of Paleo kits so I was safe.  Speaking of Steve’s Club, I am going there Monday to meet all the amazing Kids in his program, and maybe steal a 55 gallon drum worth of Paleo Krunch.  I am not going to kill anymore of your brain cells with words, so here is a picture of the recipe and then a bunch of me doing handstands every where Rocky.  BTW it was 32 degrees out with a 65 M.P.H wind so it was totally like -45 if my abacus functioned properly in the frozen tundra.  Haha ok it wasn’t that cold but I am spoiled.  Enjoy the recipe and laugh at my handstands.

  1. This is the very first recipe of yours I’ve tried and it came out perfect! The pre-baked mixture was watery so I added a couple tablespoons of coconut flour and added a bit more ginger and nutmeg. Love the texture and the not-too-sweet brownie which came out!
    Thank you and will be trying more of your recipes. Keep up the good work!

  2. Hi, I tried these yesterday with carob powder. I didn’t have. Sweet potatoe on hand so I used plain canned pumpkin. I also used the coconut oil instead of butter. The pumkin was pretty wet so I added a touch extra of coconut flour. I cut the honey just a bit ( did not have raw honey) because from what I have read carob is sweeter than chocolate. The taste was ok. Not bad by any means but kind of different in a reasonable way. The texture was kind of fall apart soft. Not raw soft, but way softer than a regular brownie. I can’t do chocolate and I have made regular carob brownies just twice which I enjoyed, but am trying to head towards gluten free and maybe towards paleo. Just wondered if anyone had done more with the carob, and what changes they might have made. I also wondered what the texture is actually like when you make it just like the recipe? Thanks for sharing recipes.

  3. Hello, these brownies are in my oven and I used every ingredients but the mashed sweet potatoes was a little chunky. I boiled them and mashed them. I tasted the wet ingredients and they don’t taste like brownies. They taste like ginger sweet potatoes. I hope it’s going to be ok.

    Any ideas?
