How good is a gooey chocolate brownie…so rich, tasty and naughty. These brownies are full of goodness you can enjoy them guilt free!!!
I have heard of others putting sweet potatoes in their brownies and thought id give it a whirl….
Sweet Potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A. Just one medium sweet potato provides your body with the complete recommended daily allowance of vitamin A!!! This amazing vitamin is useful in the prevention of several different types of cancer as it is one of the most powerful antioxidants out there. Its also helps to internally protect your skin from sun damage by both deflecting and repairing cell damage caused by excessive UV exposure.
The texture of the sweet potato keeps that gooeyness of the brownie in tact…
(makes 12 brownies)
- 150g sweet potato (about 2 potatoes)
- 50 g of honey
- 2 eggs
- 50 g of butter or coconut oil
- 100 g of almond flour
- 30 g of raw cocoa powder
- tiny pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 75g of walnuts
- Set the oven to 180ºC.
- Peel and roughly cut the sweet potato into chunks, place it in a pan with some water and steam for 15-20 minutes until it is cooked through. Discard the water and leave the potato to the side to cool.
- In a food processor place your eggs and butter/coconut oil, blitz until blended, then add the honey, eggs and the sweet potato.
- In a bowl mix the dry ingredients: almond flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder. Stir this together then add it into the food processor. Let this blend for a minute or so until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
- Poor the walnuts in and blitz for 10 second so the walnuts are lightly crushed but still crunchy.
- Place the mixture in a (butter or coconut oil) greased baking tray. Bake for 20minutes.
- Take them out and let them cool for at least 10 minutes before you get your little fingers stuck in
- Happy Baking!
Tip: Serve with some yogurt or coconut yogurt with orange zest, such a good combo!
