Last week I posted a photo on social media of my experimental, dairy free peanut butter brownies of my own creation. I was so surprised when so many people wanted the recipe so that they could try them! Even the girls at work said how yummy they were and wanted the recipe! It’s my twist on Kayla Insines ‘healthy brownie recipe’. Although I do not love her massive impact within the diet industry, and her use of the word health as a goal, she does do an amazing range of dairy free and gluten free recipes. When one of the ladies at work sent me the recipe I had to try it! First I baked them exactly to the recipe but then I got experimental and upped the game to make them extra delicious.
Since finding out I was lactose intolerant, it’s almost impossible to find yummy cakes that are dairy free and don’t cost a fortune!
So here it is, my take on sweet potato brownies.
1 massive sweet potato
150 ml of melted coconut oil
3 large eggs
4 tablespoons of maple syrup
4 heaped table spoons of coconut sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
120g of self raising flour
2 huge tablespoons of peanut butter
80g of cacoa powder
A few squares of dairy free dark chocolate
Ready, steady, bake!
