Healthy brownie

Many of you like to bake something sweet for the weekend. In order to help you, I started my own little bakery in my kitchen and made this delicious healthy brownie. Funny fact, it contains sweet potatoes! I can imagine you’d rather associate a brownie with chocolate than a potato. However chocolate is rather unhealthy for us, and you’ll be surprised how this potato can almost make the brownie taste as good as the double chocolate starbucks brownie > uhu!

So, why do I use the sweet potato? Aren’t potatoes a no-go? Well, this variant is an exception! The sweet potato is a source of vitamin A, B6, C, Beta-carotene, iron and calcium. In addition, it has little impact on your blood glucose level, which means you’ll feel satiated for a longer period of time. Exchange the normal potato for the sweet variant and your body will be so thankful!

How to prepare:

Preheat the oven on 180˚C. Boil some water, peal the sweet potato and cook for 15 minutes (until it is soft). Let the potato cool down (you could do this by putting it in cold water). Put the dates in the foodprocessor just as long until it becomes a soft paste. Then add the potato, raw cacao and vanilla extract. Mix the buckwheat and the baking powder in a different bowl with a pinch of salt. Add the chocolate mixture and blend everything. Place the baking paper on a small casserole; pour the mixture in the casserole and place in the oven for about 30 minutes. Use a sate-stick to check if your brownie is ready. If the sate-stick omes out clean you're good to go!

Hi Lisa! This recipe sounds and looks delicious! Sweets are my guilty pleasure and I’m always on the hunt for healthy alternatives. I absolutely like the idea of using buckwheat, I wish there were more recipes with it. It’s really understated grain ( I guess it’s not a grain but it what everybody name it). I have one question thought, do you use cooked buckwheat or raw in this recipe? And is it kasha buckwheat or regular white raw. Thank you in advance!


Hi Kateryna, How nice you liked this dish!! I use normale raw buckwheat! Goodluck :-)


Thank you Lisa!
