Sweet Potato Brownies

 

Two of my favorite things in the world are sweet potatoes and chocolate. And guess what? When you combine the two, they create the most decadent and guilt-free brownies ever! 


I decided to put a healthy spin on the classic chocolate-lovers treat and I must say that mine are just as delightful. Rich in flavor, but also packed with healthy fats, fiber, and Vitamin A! To cook the sweet potato, pierce it with a fork, wrap in a damp paper towel and place in microwave for 3:00 minutes. Cook until soft.  I hope you like these as much as I do! 

Total Time: 35 min

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 25 min

Ingredients:


  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips for topping



Directions:


  1. Pierce potato with a fork and wrap in a damp paper towel. Cook sweet potato in the microwave for 3:00 minutes or until soft.
  2. Using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, whisk together the eggs, syrup, and coconut oil until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine almond meal, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet.
  5. Add the sweet potato and mix until well combined.
  6. Pour brownie batter into baking pan and bake for 22-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (I have a super hot oven that cooked them in 22 minutes!)
  7. Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes, top with chocolate chips, then let the masterpiece cool completely before cutting!
  8. Try not to eat the entire pan at once!

Test Group Transformation Results

Look at these 80 day transformations! Incredible, right?!

Program Overview

  • There are 3 phases of workouts over the course of 13 weeks. 
  • In total there are 97 days of workouts because you get Sundays off as a rest day.
  • The workouts range from 45-60 minutes, and as always, there is a modifier.
  • It utilizes a timed nutrition plan to produce amazing results.
  • Shakeology, Energize, and Recover are incorporated to help fuel and replenish the body.
  • Equipment required: dumbbells, strength bands, sliders.

Nutrition Plan

80 Day Obsession follows a timed nutrition plan to optimize muscle performance and recovery.
You’ll get to eat small frequent meals- which means you'll never go longer than 3 hours without eating (yay!). More importantly, you'll have a 6-hour workout block. 
You'll have a preworkout meal one hour before you work out then you’ll drink your Energize 15-20 minutes before your workout. 
Then you’ll have your post-workout Recover within an hour of your workout and enjoy your post-workout meal within 2 hours of your workout. After that you'll eat every 2.5 to 3 hours {my kinda schedule!}!

2 Groups to Choose From

I am launching TWO different BETA TEST groups because interest has been so high! Both groups offer:
-a private app for tracking your progress
-daily tips and motivation from me!
-a community of support from the other women in the group so you don't feel alone
-weekly recipe shares
-ME to help you with the timed nutrition, designing your meal plans, sticking with your workouts, troubleshooting, and focusing on yourself!

Choose Your Start Date

Option 1: A Little Obsessed Turns into a Full Blown Obsession (begins December 20th)
This group is for the ladies who don't want to wait, the ones who want to start with 30 minute exercises in December to COMBAT the holiday weight gain! This is a great way to get comfortable with the equipment so you can ROCK the exercises in January and NOT have an EXTRA 10 lbs to lose when you start in 2018!
We'll begin on December 20th with A Little Obsessed (which is a mini version of the actual program, 80 Day Obsession) and focus on clean eating while enjoying the holiday festivities! We'll complete A Little Obsessed from December 20th (when it becomes available on Beachbody On Demand) to January 14th when 80 Day Obsession officially launches! You will be totally prepared to rock it!
Option 2: 80 Day Obsession ONLY (prep week begins January 8th, workouts begin January 15th)
If you aren't ready to get started now, join us in January for the official launch! We'll kick things off with a week of meal planning, goal setting, and more on January 8th then begin the program when it launches on the 15th!
*Both groups will last the duration of the entire program!

In these groups each participant MUST commit to:

  • Showing up daily and participating in the group.
  • Following the timed nutrition plan for your body type and goals.
  • Replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the group.
  • Drinking Energize before workouts and Recover after workouts.
  • Utilizing the strength bands and sliders for best results.
  • I must be your assigned coach.

Do I Really Need Shakeology, Energize, and Recover?!

Ummm YES! Those transformations above didn't come from just doing half the program. ALL of those people committed to the whole shebang and that's what I'm requiring for my groups! I want YOU to get the best results and I want to devote my attention to the ladies who are SERIOUS about sticking to their goals! Plus, you will be SORE and will NEED these to keep moving forward!
Shakeology is a superfood powerhouse designed to deliver your entire day's worth of nutrients! It's made from over 70 whole superfoods from around the world and will replace a meal, vitamin, and probiotic each day! It will give you a natural energy boost, lower your cholesterol, reduce blood sugar levels, curb cravings, keep you full, AND improve your hair, skin, nails, and digestion! 
ENERGIZE is the pretty yellow drink that gives me LIFE! I call it my "mommy juice" or "parent power punch" because it is AH-MAZING! It gives me a great little energy boost without the jitters! It tastes like a fruity lemonade and is one of the main highlights of my day!
RECOVER is the post workout drink that prevents your muscles from getting sore. It replenishes what you lost and helps to rebuild and repair your muscles so you aren't too sore to press play the next day! Plus it tastes like a Wendy's Frosty and is freaking delicious!

Cash Prize! Say what?!

This is a BETA TEST GROUP which means you will be the FIRST to go through the program!  You have the opportunity to win $500 for completing the program and submitting your results plus you have the opportunity to become a Beachbody Challenge Winner and earn additional money for your transformation.  I am looking for people that are seriously committed to rocking this program and your results.  
So no exceptions will be made. You cannot join a group without the above requirements.
