Sugar logs of chocolate brilliance. Look innocent enough but then they get stuck to the roof of your mouth, making you panic and scream for water. Clutching at the walls like a 17 year old at a party who’s just pulled a bucket bong and downed three spoonfuls of Milo straight after. Crying…gasping…
Enough of that.
These are still logs of chocolate brilliance but without the cloying dryness or need for mass hydration. These brownies, my friends, are MOIST. Best of all, there’s not a single grain of Satan’s honey in there, all that sweetness comes from Good Mother Earth in the form of sweet potato. Give them a crack, you can eat as many as you like but you’ll be high on cacao caffeine. Potentially. So take it easy. You’re an adult now.
Sweet Potato Brownies
350 grams grated sweet potato (peel it first, mate)
2 big eggs
3 level tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 cup of maple syrup
1 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup olive oil
1 level tablespoon bicarb soda
pinch of chilli powder – flakes, if you like the thrill.
Basically, bung it all in a bowl and combine really well. Pour it into a lined smallish baking tray and bake for 30 minutes. When cooled, drizzle over some good quality chocolate and Roberto is your Padre’s Hermanos.
I got up out of this chair and measured my baking tray for you – it’s 7 x 10 inches
