If you are stressed and find you’re craving chocolate or something sweet, make these Brownies. Kumera (sweet potato) is a root vegetable it’s sweet and very grounding and calming. The raw cacao powder contains magnesium which is also calming for the body. I pop them in my kids lunch boxes, super easy!

Ingredients

500g kumera (sweet potato)

3 organic eggs whisked

3 Tbsp of coconut flour, I have also used amaranth flour (delicious)

1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil

4 Tbsp coconut sugar

4 Tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup of the best dark raw chocolate you can find (broken up) – optional for extra richness

Directions

Prepare a baking tin by lining with baking paper, I use one approx. 20cm x 20cm.

Peel, cook and mash sweet potato until very smooth, no lumps.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Add eggs, oil, vanilla extract and coconut sugar to sweet potato as well as dark raw chocolate if your using it,  gently fold. In another bowl mix flour, cacao powder, baking powder and salt.

Combine the two bowls of ingredients.

Once combined, pour mixture into baking tin. Bake for 30min, then allow to cool.

Slice into squares and enjoy!
