Sarah, from Sarah Fit, and I decided to have a bake-off! Our mission was to make a dessert that was on the healthier side, yet still able to satisfy the sweet tooth! I went with a chocolaty taste and Sarah went with more of a pumpkin pie-ish flavor. I thought they both came out great. I am actually going to make Sarah's dish for my Thanksgiving gathering. I can’t wait to share how it comes out!

My inspiration for this dessert came from my love of chocolate and sweet potatoes! The recipe that I followed is from Chef Toni Robertson, as I also added my own twist here and there.
¾ C semi sweet chocolate
2 ripe bananas
1 medium-sized sweet potato
3 egg whites and 1 whole egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs chia seeds
1 tsp of cinnamon? If you wish!
1/4 c (or less) honey
2 tbs brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350
Melt chocolate (any way you know how!) add in 1 tsp vanilla if you wish
Microwave the sweet potato and peel. Place sweet potato, 2 ripe bananas, honey and sugar in blender. Blend until smooth.
Remove the melted chocolate from heat and fold over sweet potato/banana puree add 1 whole egg and chia seeds. Mix well.
Beat the 3 egg whites until a little foamy. Add this to your mixture.
Place chocolate mixture in (sprayed) single serving custard cups. This recipe serves 6-8. The more filling in the cup the longer it cooks!
Cook for about 10 minutes. If you desire it more cooked through add 5 minutes or less. Keep a lookout though, every oven cooks differently!
I had an awesome time cooking with Sarah. You have to check out the videos. Her new camera is insane!! Have an awesome Thanksgiving.
