Updated: Apr 2

Who said brownies should only be a treat? Dig into these decadent, refined sugar free brownies anytime of the day. I'll be having mine for breakfast with a side of vanilla YoPRO yoghurt and some strawberries.


Ready in: 30 minutes

Makes: 9 pieces


Ingredients

  • 400g sweet potatoes (roughly two medium sized)

  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (I use Tropeaka)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews (or nuts of choice)

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate baking chips (optional)

  • 3 tbsp cacao powder

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (or flour of choice)

  • 2 tbsp rice malt syrup

  • 1 tsp coconut oil



Method


Step 1. Preheat oven to 180°. Peel and chop the sweet potatoes and boil for 15 mins or until soft before draining and rinsing with cool water


Step 2. In a blender add the flour, protein powder, egg, rice malt syrup, baking powder, coconut oil and chopped nuts and give it a quick blitz


Step 3. Add the sweet potato (it doesn't need to be completely cold, just not super hot) to the blender for 30 seconds or until mixed


Step 4. Grease a baking tray or line with baking paper and pour the mixture onto it


Step 5. Bake for 30 mins then allow to cool completely before removing from the baking tray and slicing into 9 pieces
