Would you believe me if I told you that these gorgeous chocolate brownies are actually good for you?!
These chocolate brownies are not only packed with protein, soluble fibre, antioxidants and vitamin A but they contain NO flour, butter or sugar either.
They taste AMAZING and are very diet and weight loss friendly at only 100 calories a piece. Oh and don’t get put off by the secret ingredient
- 400g (2 medium) sweet potatoes
- 100g dark chocolate chips
- 2 heaped tbsp (20g) oats*
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder**
- 3 egg whites
- 1 tsp honey/agave nectar/freedom
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil***
- Optional ingredients: tsp coffee, tsp orange zest, dried cranberries or raisins, chopped almonds or walnuts
*To make this recipe gluten free use gluten free oats.
**I use MyProtein whey protein powder but you can swap the protein powder for skimmed milk powder and cocoa or hot chocolate powder!
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C (350 F or gas mark 4)
Skin the potatoes , chop into chunks and cook in the microwave until soft (5-6 minutes)
Either mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl or add into your food processor
Add the chocolate protein powder, oats, cinnamon and baking powder
*blend* or *mix*
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil (in a microwave) and add to the blender along with the egg whites and honey or alternative (& stir in any extra ingredients)
Pour your mixture into a lined or greased baking tray (8" by 8") and bake for 30 minutes
Allow to cook & slice in to 9 or 12 pieces
Nutritional information shown is for a 12th of the brownie mixture!
*with added cranberries!
