I have tried a few healthy brownie recipes but never really like them as they were either tasteless or not healthy enough. So I came up with my own ‘invention’.
Here is my take.
The ingredients I used here are my personal preference. The good thing about this recipe is its versatility you can add whatever you like as long as the main ingredients are either sweet potatoes or avocados. Vegans can use egg alternatives.
Cooked sweet potatoes and avocados go into the food processor. You can use a potato masher if you don’t have a processor but prepared for a bit of elbow crease.
Add cacao powder and the remaining ingredients until smooth
Pour on to baking tray. In this picture you will see that is not the case, I invested in a brownie tray cos the brownies are equal. But a regular tray is fine again this is just my personal preference.
Delicious. Baked brownies, looks rustic I promise they are yummy-lious
The brownies rustic on the outside, moist on the inside
Sweet potatoes and Avocados brownies
Sweet potatoes – cooked with skin off
1/2 cupGluten free flour and
1/2 rice, coconut flour
Or Regular plain flour
Or Oat flour
3-4 teaspoons of Sweetner – stevia, honey, agave
Apple sauce or coconut oil if you don’t like apples
2 Eggs, vegans can use egg alternative
5 teaspoons of cacoa or unsweetened cocoa powder
Pitted dates or carob
1 teaspoon of Cinammon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Blender or potato masher if you don’t have a blender, this may require a bit of elbow grease.
Blend sweet potatoes, avocado, pitted dates (if using) until smooth
Add stevia or your chosen liquid sweetner
Crack one egg at a time, and blend
Add oil or applesauce, vanilla essence
Follow by putting all the dry ingredients and blend until smooth
Pour into your baking or brownie tray
Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes depending on your oven temperature
Allow to cool slightly for about 10 minutes, then slice, serve when it is completely cooled. If you can wait that long.
If you are using a brownie tray, place the slightly cool brownies on a baking rack. Well that is if you have not already eaten about two brownies like I did.
Enjoy with your chosen hot beverage, mine was coffee.
If you are short on time or like me can’t bothered peeling sweet potatoes, bake them in the oven ahead or on the day. I baked mine the night before, took it out of the fridge the following day and took the skins off.
