Coconut & Macadamia Sweet Potato Brownies

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition

 
 

This delicious recipe is an adaption of Deliciously Ella's Sweet Potoato Brownies. Crunchy on the outside and a soft caramel-like centre with the added crunch from the macadamia nuts. This is a great mid morning snack or even in the afternoon when the energy slump hits around 3pm, often triggering a craving for something sweet. 

Sweet potato being a complex carbohydrate, provides you with slow releasing energy to avoid another energy slump, whilst the good fats from the almond meal & macadamia nuts provide satiety keeping you full until dinner. These are also a great source fibre keeping everything moving and allowing you to detoxify. And if that wasn't enough of a good reason, the raw cacao is an awesome antioxidant which stabilise cell damaging free radicals.

ingredients

  • 3 cups sweet potato (approx 2 medium sized)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 14 medjool dates
  • 2/3 cup almond meal
  • 4 tbsp of raw cacao
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, cut into halves
  • 2 tbsp raw maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Desiccated coconut to sprinkle on top

Method 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius
  2. Peel the sweet potato, cut into smaller chunks (to speed up the process) and steam until soft.

  4. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl first, then mix together with the sweet potato & date mixture

  5. Rub some oil on a baking/cake tin and line with baking paper. The oil helps the baking paper stick to the tin.

  6. Add the mixture to the tin and using a knife slice into pieces & then sprinkle desiccated coconut on top 

  7. Cook in the oven for 40-45 mins or until a hard on top and soft in the middle. Cooking time will vary depending on the oven.
