As most of you know, Tim and I are always looking for amazing recipes and this time we found and amazing Sweet Potato Brownie recipe we want to share with you. I guess most of you know her already: Ella Woodward, also known as Deliciously Ella. She is a British food writer and entrepreneur. Ella was an advocate of clean eating but turned against it after a media backlash that questioned its health benefits and says she never used the term herself. Her clean eating series of books was called by The Guardian “arguably the most successful fad diet cookbook series in recent years”. So yeah, what is really cool about her, is that she always comes up with a more healthier version of classic recipes like this one. The sweet potato brownie recipe. Sure this recipe does not have necessarily less calories than a normal and usual brownie recipe, however the ingredients are super and are definitely much healthier then the usual ones.
Tim made ours but I am the one who ate all of them so I thought about sharing the recepie with you guys, hehehe:
What you need for 10 sweet potato brownies:
500g of sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
100g of ground almonds
100g of ground oats
12 medjool dates
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
6 tablespoons of raw cacao
6 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
A pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
2 tablespoons of cacao
2 tablespoons of almond butter
1 Start by pre-heating the oven to 180C, then peel the sweet potatoes.
2 Cut them into chunks and place into a steamer for about twenty minutes, until they become really soft.
3 Once they are perfectly soft and beginning to fall apart remove them and add them to a food processor with the pitted dates.
4 Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl, before mixing in the sweet potato date combination. Stir well.
5 Place into a lined baking dish and cook for about forty-five to fifty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie cake with a fork bringing it out dry.
6 Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes – this is really important as it needs this time to stick together.
7 While the brownies are cooling make the icing by simply melting all the ingredients together and stirring well, then place in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up a bit.
8 Remove the brownies from the tray, leaving it another few minutes before cutting them into squares – then spread the icing on top, dig in and enjoy!
