Baking Recipes

Healthy treat alert! As you’ll know, I have nothing against refined sugar and regularly use it in baking treats. We do like to balance it out and eat plenty of nourishing foods at the same time. My wee 2 year old girl Gwyneth is a huge brownie fan so I’ve made it my business to trial a number of healthier versions. I’m not going to pretend it’s as good as a regular brownie and I’ll still be making my much less healthy version for treats, but this is definitely a good substitute for for more regular snacking. See what you think, I’d love any feedback. Enjoy x


1 1/2 cups of cooked and mashed kumara (give or take)
3/4 cup of almond or peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut oil or butter melted
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
3 tbsp rice or coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, whisked lightly

Beforehand- Peel and cook  2-3 kumara to make approximately 1.5 cups.  ( this can be done the day before and stored in the fridge). Preheat oven to 175 C. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl.  Adding the egg last. Line an 20 x 20 cm pan with baking paper. Once all the ingredients have been mixed, pour batter into the baking dish  and bake for 25 minutes. Brownie should appear soft. Slice when cooled.
