Vata Pacifying Chocolate Orange Brownies


Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 60 minutes

These chocolate orange brownies are gluten and dairy free. They can easily be stored in an airtight container in a dry and cool place for a few days; in fact, their flavor increases with time.

  1. Boil the sweet potatoes for about 8 to 10 minutes (500gms of sweet potatoes makes approximately 400gms of purée). Ensure they are cooked well. Peel and cut into cubes. Place these into a pot with cold water to cool down; just enough water so the sweet potato cubes are covered. After a few minutes, once cool, drain the water and use a folk or a potato ricer to mash.
  2. Place the sweet potato purée into a bowl. Add the remaining dry ingredients: sweet almond flour, sweet potato flour, xylosweet, cocoa powder, coco nibs and orange zest.
  3. Make sure the dry ingredients are mixed well before adding the creamed coconut, vanilla essence, juice of 2 medium sized oranges.
  4. Melt the chocolate on low heat, fold carefully under the mixture.
  5. Prepare your baking tray with biodegradable baking paper. Spread the mixture on the tray (about 2cm thick) and bake at 175 °C for approximately 40 minutes. Use a toothpick to test if they are done.
  6. Wait until cooled down before cutting into squares, 4cm by 5cm (makes 24 pieces).
