Tasty Tuesday {brownies}

I kind of don’t want to tell you what’s in these. I want to smoosh them through your screen so you can taste them before getting any preconceived notion that I have gone stark raving mad!

I’m going to blame {aka shout thank you from the rooftops!} my lovely friend Melissa for this recipe. She is a foodie like me and dropped into a conversation last week that she doesn’t like sweet potato. What? I don’t understand. I love love love me some sweet potato – in varying forms.

So I set out to look for some recipes to attempt to lure her to the loving side of the kumera friend … and I stumbled across this recipe: brownies {they had me right there, but let’s go on} made with sweet potato. Now it was my turn for a little What? I don’t understand!

But you know me … if there’s a recipe for something sweet which is refined sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy free, egg free and vegan, particularly with rave reviews and the word brownie in the title, I’m obviously going to attempt it. At least once.

Oh. My. Sweet. Sweets.

You are not going to believe the taste of these. I keep having just another one so I can be sure I haven’t actually gone mad and they do actually taste oh so good.

oopsie, had a filter on my phone & didn't realise!

When I read that Ella {the creator of these insanely yummy brownies} had a similar experience when she first made them, I could almost picture her doing exactly what I was doing in my kitchen. They are easy to make too. I only wish the kitchen fairies would leave me a Thermomix one night while I sleep …

Go to Deliciously Ella. Follow the recipe to the letter {I added one tablespoon of Maca powder for an extra goodness boost, but you don’t need to change a thing if you don’t want to} and while you’re there, bookmark/pin or whatever it is you do to save for later, her other recipes for testing.

The possibilities are endless … and my mouth is watering!

    Oh my, those sound great. Have you tried chocolate mousse made with avocado? Sounds insane, but it is amazingly delicious and has a wonderful texture. I add a little mint essence and use dark choc powder for a super lush version. And the recipe is vegan and reasonably allergy proof too!

    1. I have but no matter what I do I can still taste avocado! I love avocado, just not in my mousse 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
