Sweet Potato & Walnut Brownie Bites

Trying to establish some self control and this is a start. Instead of baking the sweet potatoes in a pan, I figure if I bake it in cupcakes, I’d be less likely to eat them all. So far so good, I’ve only had one (but I’ll probably cave soon and eat the rest). 

I got the recipe from PaleOMG, as with most of my recipes. (Is there any recipes of hers that aren’t delicious and so tempting to try?!)

Follow the instructions through. However, since it’s in a cupcake tin, bake at 350 for 15 minutes instead of 30 in the baking dish. 

I made a little oopsie – left out one tablespoon of coconut flour so it was moister than it should have been. And forgot the chocolate chips in the batter so I sprinkled them in on top. Still delicious. Plus the walnuts, with the extra crunch. Yum. Help. I’m about to cave and eat another as I’m remembering the brownie and writing this post.

Paleo Ketchup

It’s almost Labor Day. No more white pants!! (Do people actually follow this rule?) Anyone doing anything special on this day off? I plan on enjoying this last day before classes start Tuesday. Last day  of summer! 

For dinner tonight, I had a side of sweet potato fries. Typically I season them with salt and pepper followed by a quick toss with coconut oil to roast. Today I tried something new and seasoned them with some salt and pepper, ground cumin, ground paprika, and garlic powder. Baked them into fries and served it with this ketchup recipe.

Tastes just like Heinz ketchup, but without all of that sugar! Perfect. Also weird thought that came to mind..ketchup in Europe tasted really different in a strange way. Wasn’t much of a fan when I needed some ketchup with my fish and chips! 

Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

Wow this recipe is definitely one of my favorites, maybe because sweet potato is one of my favorite vegetables. But it for sure hit all the right flavors and tastes that I was looking for. Yum, I can still imagine it now. For a single serving, I used

  • Half of one medium sweet potato
  • One egg
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chili Powder
  • Cumin Powder
  • Coconut Oil

I first shredded the sweet potato in a food processor, then heated up a skillet with some coconut oil. Then poured my shredded sweet potatoes in the skillet with an added pinch of salt, pepper, cumin powder, and chili powder. The potatoes are done when pieces start to brown. Transfer the finished sweet potatoes into a plate and then fry an egg sunny side up. Side note, I did sprinkle a dash of crushed red pepper flakes because I love the surprise extra kick of heat.

Such a filling breakfast and one of my favorites. For sure going to be one of my regulars. I already want another serving, help!
