Bake-Off Winner Lauren’s Healthy Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Scroll

Our Nourish Bake-Off Winner Lauren Enright is back with another delicious recipe! She has kindly allowed us to share it with you all so you can treat yourself and your nearest and dearest this Christmas!

 

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius (160 fan)
  2. Peel and cube the sweet potato and steam it until it is easily pierced with a fork
  3. Meanwhile, put all of the other ingredients (minus the dates) in a large mixing bowl and stir.
  4. Place the dates and cooked potato into a food processor (or strong blender) and blitz until smooth.
  5. Pour the puree into the bowl containing the other ingredients and give it a good mix.
  6. Transfer the mixture into a lined baking tin and place in the oven.
  7. Bake until you can pierce the bake with a fork and remove it completely dry. This should take 25-35 minutes.
  8. Once removed from the oven leave to cool for 20 minutes. The sweet potato needs this cooling time to stick together.
  9. Cut into 16 brownies and enjoy cold or heated. I also topped my brownies with cacao nibs for some added crunch 🙂
    These will last 5 days in the fridge once you keep them in an airtight container.

If you love brownies you’re in the right place. And if you’re after a more healthy take then you’re certainly where you should be. Lauren’s Healthy Chocolate Fudge Brownies are paleo-friendly. Plus they are easily made vegan if you substitute the honey for maple syrup. To top it off, they’re even Coeliac friendly. Hurrah! That’s because these brownies are made with buckwheat and ground almonds instead of wheat.
What’s more unique is that these brownies use sweet potato. You find any eggs or coconut oil in these beauties. The sweet potato is king here 🙂

You’ll get 16 tasty chocolate fudge brownies in total from this recipe.
Just make sure you save one for yourself before everyone snatches them up!

Nutrition

Buckwheat

Despite its name, Buckwheat is actually a seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel and not related to the wheat grain.
It’s naturally gluten-free and is a great substitute for those who are sensitive or allergic to grains containing gluten.

Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes have a deliciously creamy texture and are sweet in flavour. Naturally, this makes them ideal for both sweet and savoury dishes. I’m talking sweet potato brownies and satiating sweet potato curries here people – yuuum!

Sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber and vitamins including beta-carotene, b vitamins and vitamin C.
