Chocolate maple and pecan brownies with chocolate frosting.

October 9, 2017

 

These lovely brownies are packed full of potent superfood nutrients. they are free form gluten and processed sugar. I usually make a batch of them and freeze them. It sounds like a strange combination but they are delicious and a healthy way to get that mood enhancing chocolate hit! I take them out to defrost two hours before I want to eat them. I use as much organic ingredients as possible in all recipes. 

 

 

 Ingredients for base of brownies:

 

600g sweet potato

100g buckwheat flour

80g of chopped pecans

6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder

4 tablespoons of maple syrup

Pinch of Himalayan salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 eggs

 

Directions:

 

Preheat oven to 180C

Place cubed potatoes in the steamer for around 15 mins until soft, then mash them

Put dates in food processor until well chopped

Add all of the ingredients together and process until smooth

Put into individual muffin cases or a greased square baking tray

Cook for around 20 mins or until firm but still a little bouncy to touch

Allow to cool before adding the topping
