Hi there and welcome back to another recipe review. This time I am trying out a recipe from someone who liked my last post and honestly, the best thing about starting this blog is looking at the websites of everyone who has liked any of my posts. It’s been a lot of fun looking through what ya have and man, I got a list ready to go of everything I wanna try out.
Today I’m doing something I don’t think I have ever done before, and that’s baking some vegan brownies. I don’t live the vegan life, too many good things to give up. This recipe though, the pictures looked amazing and it had sweet potatoes in it, which I happened to have at home.
The recipe is from Jamie at thegastronomygal and boy were these way better than I thought they would be. I did take some liberties with the recipe though such as adding walnuts and using regular flour, and probably changing the ratios a bit.
the recipe is
- 1 1/2 cups sweet potato puree
- 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
- 2/3 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp baking soda
- A pinch of salt
Tip, you can use 6 tsp of baking powder as a substitute for the soda.
I used a stand mixer to combine everything, but you can also use a food processor (as suggested in the original recipe) or do it manually, but it’ll obviously take longer to mix. I also topped it with walnuts because they make most baked sweets better, if you disagree, FIGHT ME!
I boiled the sweet potatoes till they became nice and soft, mushed them up a bit with a potato masher and then combined everything in the stand mixer. Poured in onto a greased baking pan and baked for 20 minutes. Once that’s done let them cool a bit so they can become a little firmer.
My bestie thought they were very soft and gooey, and surprisingly chocolatey. The walnuts obviously made them better because of the crunch. Seriously, these are very soft and gooey brownies, had they not had the walnuts, wouldn’t hit as hard in my opinion.
Now to the ghettoest part of the review:
these are like eating the jiggly part of a big bootyTHEE Broadway Vic.
What a poet.
