I've been wanting to make these brownies ever since I heard about them, but I never had the guts to try them until now!
SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE BROWNIES
200g sweet potato
1 - 2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup honey
1/2 cup virgin olive oil
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of cocoa powder (you can use cacao powder too)
1/2 cup coconut flower
#1. Preheat oven to 365 degrees celsius
#2. Peel and grate the sweet potato into a bowl. Add other dry ingredients
#3. Mix together all the wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients.
#4. Bake for 30 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
#5. Leave to cool for approx. 15 minutes, then cut into pieces and try not to eat them all at once!
Overall, these turned out really well and everyone loved them! No one believed me at first, when I told them that these brownies contained the dreaded sweet potato and no flour or (refined) sugar. They had the exact same texture and density like a normal chocolate brownie, just without the guilt when I ate the rest of the batch!
Next time, I shall double the amount of honey used because they were quite bitter due to the amount of cocoa powder I used. Plus, I think that a gooey chocolate topping would be perfect, whilst the blueberry yogurt was delicious, nothing will ever replace a melted Mars bar!
Has anyone got any more suggestions for what I should bake? Preferably chocolate-themed ;)
