Protein brownies: A sweet potato & beetroot addition

Hello munkeys!

Everyone loves brownies, so I thought I'd make them - pluuuuus, they're super easy to make. If you haven't baked with beetroot before.. you should! It creates a great texture, is very dense and rich, and you can't even taste the beetroot at all. Crazy. Here's how it went down in the kitchen: (btw, this is a fairly huge batch, so shooooould last you the whole week.. :P)


3 medium sweet potatoes
2 small cooked beetroots
150g 70+% dark chocolate
3 tbsp cocoa
4 tbsp coconut flour
1 scoop chocolate nut whey protein powder (or any other flavour)
1 tsp baking powder
3 medium sized eggs
10 small dates soaked
2 tbsp coconut oil/ghee/grassfed butter


1. Peel & chop up the sweet potato in to small chunks & steam them until mash-able.
2. Chop up the beetroot too & add it to the steamer.
3. Boil the kettle & soak the dates.
4. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.
5. Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil/ghee/butter & set aside.
6. Crack the eggs into the food processor & blend until slightly frothy.
7. Add the sweet potato & beetroot & blend until fairly smooth & combined (small lumps are fine).
8. Add the coconut flour, whey & cocoa to the mixture & blend.
9. Chop up the soaked dates & add them to the mixture, as well as the melted chocolate, blend until all is combined.
10. Add the baking powder, blend & spoon out on to baking tray.
11. Bake in the oven for 18-21 minutes (you want them to be firm on the outside but still soft 7 gooy on the inside).
12. Set aside to cool.

Enjoy munkeys! :)

(Sorry for the lack of pictures: I totally forgot - just another excuse to make some more! Hehee)
