Brownies With An Interesting Twist

Have a sweet tooth but feel a little guilty indulging with rich, delicious chocolates and deserts, we'll I've got just the thing to fix that, why not give these sweet potato brownies a try. I found the recipe from The Body Coach's Instagram page and just had to try them out.

What you need:

400g Sweet potato 
100g dark chocolate
30g oats
50g chocolate whey protein
half a teaspoon of baking powder
2 egg whites
75g raspberries
25g nuts 
few drops vanilla extract

Pre heat your over to 180 degrees celsius 

First things first you'll need to cut up your sweet potato and make sure you peel of the skin. Pop the chopped potato in the microwave for about 10 minutes, so it's soft enough to mash up.

Mash the potato up in a bowl and add your oats, protein powder, egg whites, baking powder, raspberries and nut.

Next you'll need to melt your chocolate. Take your time with this, you don't want it to burn. Once the chocolate is all melted add it to your mix and mix all your ingredients together.

Spoon your mixture into an over proof tin, I just just a cake tin. Leave them in there for to bake for 25 minutes. Add some extra raspberries and other berries or maybe some geek yoghurt or fromage frais for the perfect desert or tasty treat.

Indulge without the guilty feeling after!
