Paleo Chocolate Brownies

Check out these brownies I made yesterday.

  • 1 medium sweet potato (white flesh/purple skin) – 2-3 cups when grated
  • 2 whole eggs
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup honey (I have also used 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2½ tablespoon coconut flour

Transfer into a 9 inch square tin lined with Baking Paper and cook for 185 degree oven for 25 minutes.

I didn’t grate the sweet potato, instead I just used the food processor.

We’ve been getting our purple skinned sweet potato from the Howrah Garden Centre.

The purple skinned ones have white flesh on the inside and are a bit sweeter.

They don’t really have that ‘sweet potato taste’ and if there’s any chunks in the brownie it looks like a chunk of walnut.

Next time I’ll substitute the honey for something else. Most likely stevia to decrease the sugar content or maple syrup as I find that sweeter and won’t need to use as much.

You could also use a sugar free maple syrup if you tolerate that well, just as you know that it starts looking less like the original recipie at this stage.
