Fudgy Chocolate Brownie Muffins (GF, low sugar)

Sometimes I’m a terrible parent. It’s only been in the last few months that I’ve introduced the girls to “happy boxes”. Because some days, in the midst of stress, madness and a million things to do, all you can do is drive through. It doesn’t happen often. It will come and go as a desperate solution for feeding my children, it’s definitely not ideal, but it happened. Don’t judge. And please note I say “terrible parent” very facetiously, because I think most parents are too hard on themselves. Me included.

Then there’s other times where I’m kicking ass at making awesome healthy and delicious food for my family. Like today. Started with Banana & Chia Pancakes, plenty of fruit and vege in between and it’s ending with these amazing Fudgy Brownies. I also whipped up some ice blocks out of banana, avocado, strawberries, coconut cream, maple and vanilla in my Magic Bullet. Kicking goals today! So it’s balance right?

Miss 5 just started prep, so I’m trying to give her healthy fuel for learning and playing. And if you’re familiar with my recipes you’ll know it’s a “fly by the seat of your pants” style, with a focus on quick and simple. So…Here’s the recipe for a nutritious lunchbox treat.

FUDGY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES

2 small sweet potato grated (approx 500g grated)
3 eggs
100g butter melted
1/3 c cocoa
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c gluten free flour (could switch for almond meal for full paleo version, let me know how you go with that!)
splashes of vanilla

Blitz all of this in a food processor until smoothish. Pour into greased muffin trays, this made 12 X 6cm diameter muffins. Cook at 180degrees for around 20 mins. They should get a nice crusty outer and be a bit gooey and Fudgy in the middle. Yummo! I hope you enjoy x Jade

  1. I made these using almond meal (as that’s all I had) and they worked wonderfully! Very fudgey. I also cut out the sugar, used a few Tb spoons of maple syrup instead for the little one, and chucked some dark choc chips into half the batter for the big kids. Delicious! Thanks!!
