Anyway, yesterday I posted on Instagram and FB my first ever brownie I baked for myself after half a year of avoiding it. Though I bake brownies every now and then but they are just for my Sweetest. And yes, I wasn't tempted to try them even just once.
SPOILER ALERT: This is NOT my original recipe so I am not taking credit for it. (If you want the original recipe - click HERE) I found it in Pinterest and just want to share it here because a lot of my FB friends are asking for the recipe. So here you go... by popular demand - The Flourless Sweet (a.k.a. Kamote) Potato Brownie
1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potato - Poke 3-4 medium sized sweet potatoes and bake them for an hour in the oven or do what I did, I microwaved them for 10 minutes. Remember: whether you are baking or microwaving them you need to poke the poor sweet potatoes. But you can also boil them, which ever is easier or more convenient for you.
1 cup of almond butter - The original recipe calls for peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice. I used almond butter because I turned peanut free too. Again long story.
3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder - I used the store brand cocoa powder.
1 egg - This has to be mixed at the end after all the ingredients are all incorporated.
1/4 cup maple syrup - This is in the original recipe. I used homemade maple syrup that my Sweetest made last spring from the sop we got from the maple trees in our backyard, so this is the real stuff and organic for that matter. If you don't have maple syrup or you don't like it maybe you can use any sugar of your choice (white or brown) but I think you need to use 1/2 cup or depends on your preference. But don't take my words for it, if I were you because I am just guessing. I am on sugar detox too that's why I don't have a problem not using sugar. And yes, it's another long story. LOL
1 teaspoon vanilla - It's in the original recipe. I omitted this ingredient because I don't have it. End of the story. Hahaha
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon - I used only 1 tsp. I don't know why but I did.
1 teaspoon baking soda - It's in the original recipe and I have no problem with it.
Of course, like any baking, you need to preheat oven at 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in the bowl and add the egg in the end (don't ask me why because I don't know the answer). Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper (I didn't do this. I used a disposable square aluminum baking pan.) Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 25 minutes. That's it.
There you go friends. You can now make your own Flourless Sweet Potato (Kamote) Brownie.
I know, you find my recipe a little odd but I have an alibi. I am a rebel. I have a little problem following directions and I am not a baker or a cook or anything like that. I am just a rebel foodie and a self-proclaimed experimental chef(slash)baker(slash)eater(slash)repeat. I do love cooking and baking for some reasons. So pardon me for how stup*d I wrote this recipe. It wasn't in the original intention but it always ends up like this. Or maybe this is really how I deal with food. But trust me, this brownie is delish to the highest level. LOL And, did I mention that I baked the brownie in an over toaster? Yes, I am a rebel indeed!
Enjoy your brownie!
