Today we’re sharing our favorite ooey-gooey, fudgy, chocolatey brownie bite recipe! Best of all, this recipe includes some true power foods that aren’t typically found in brownies: avocado and sweet potato (or pumpkin).
These grain-free Sweet Potato Avocado Brownie Bites make the perfect ending to your or your child’s packed lunch once or twice week. We say once or twice a week because even though these are a healthier treat….they’re still a treat – so moderation is important because we wouldn’t want you to develop a habit of having a treat after every.single.meal. This is a freezer-friendly recipe, so we recommend portioning out two or three brownie bites and freeze them in individual snack baggies for easy grab-and-go lunch box additions.
As The Real Food RDs we do enjoy treats every once in awhile. In fact, we encourage them as long as you exercise some self-control and practice portion control. We never want you to feel restricted though, as that can lead to a poor relationship with food. In addition, we like to take a sugar-loaded dessert made with unhealthy oils and refined flours and re-create them so that they are nourishing and provide the body with some good too, while still tasting delicious. You’re going to love these brownie bites!
