To celebrate a happy event or simply conclude a dinner, there is nothing better than a dessert to have fun. Cakes are generally the most popular with gourmets, except that they are not all good for health, especially when eaten in excess. For this reason, we present in this article a healthy brownie recipe that will combine pleasure and health to delight your palate.
It is a simple, delicious and healthy recipe. And for good reason, its low-calorie content and its richness in antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats. Its main ingredient is avocado, which is rich in nutrients, essential amino acids, and oleic acid. This recipe also has the advantage of not containing any dairy products, flour or sugar and of combining sweet potato, coconut milk, and cocoa which, like avocado, are just as nutritious.
Before presenting this recipe, let’s review the benefits of the ingredients that make it up.
The consumption of avocado is advised to improve the quality of its diet and provide the nutrients necessary for better health. It is therefore rich in fiber, vitamin K and E, potassium and magnesium. In addition, it contains an oil rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and its effect on weight control is similar to that of fruits and vegetables. According to a study, avocado is beneficial to cardiovascular health with a profile identical to that of nuts. In addition, its lutein and zeaxanthin content means that this food is associated with a minimal risk of cartilage defects and osteoarthritis. In addition, these two components also contribute to eye and skin health.
Due to its nutritional properties, sweet potato has been the subject of several studies. Thus, according to a study, it would have an antioxidant, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antimicrobial and anti-aging effect, thanks to the proteins, lipids, carotenoids, anthocyanins and phenolic acids that compose it.
It is said to contain medium chain triglycerides (MCT) which, according to one study, are associated with weight loss, while balancing the gut microbiota. It would also have the advantage of boosting the immune system thanks to the lauric acid it contains.
Because it is rich in antioxidants, cocoa would, according to a study, offer protection for neurons and an improvement in cognition and positive mood. In the same way, it would reduce the inflammation and would thus be a significant means of prevention to reduce the risk of allergies, anxiety, and hyperglycemia.
