Make & Bake
- Go to your oven and turn up the heat (180°C). Peel the two sweet potatoes and slice them in half. Put a teaspoon of coconut oil on the potatoes and place them in the oven for about… 20 minutes. When they’re cooked and soft it’s perfect.Let the sweet potatoes rest for a bit, so that they can cool down. In the meanwhile, grind the hazelnuts in the food processor. Now put the crunched hazelnuts into a bowl and add the spelt flour (or buckwheat flour), ginger, five tablespoons cacao powder, vanilla, a pinch of sea salt and cinnamon and stir it all together.Cut the dates into small pieces. Put the cooled sweet potatoes in the food processer and process well. Now add the dates and process again until it’s thoroughly mixed.Then spoon the mixture into the bowl with the flour and spices and mix it all together until there’s one soft mix.
It’s time to chop the walnuts! guilty free brownie recipe almost ready!
Add half of them to the mix and stir well.
Put the parchment paper in your ovenproof bakeware and spoon the mix into it. Smooth it out over the surface and then place the brownies in the oven for 30 minutes.
Use a little fork to prick the brownies, so that you can check if they’re done already. If the mix no longer sticks to the fork, you can remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool down for a few minutes. Let’s say 10 minutes.
Time for the frosting!
While the brownies are in the oven, you can make the frosting.
You’re making this by mixing a pinch of sea salt, a tablespoon of cacao and the maple syrup in a bowl. Spread this on top of the cooled brownies and sprinkle the rest of the walnuts over the brownies. You could also sprinkle some coco(nut) on top, whatever you like.
Remove the brownies from the bakeware and cut them into small pieces.
I’m sure you’re gonna enjoy this!
