Brownies are always full of sugar, fat and an absolute sin? Wrong thought! These are not only extremely tasty and fudgy, but also healthy, fat-free, vegan and gluten-free. Jackpot!
You don't even need many ingredients. But what you need is definitely a real craving for chocolate! You can do that, right?
Instead of flour, sugar and butter, we use sweet potato as the basis in this recipe. We also use a mixture of ground almonds and buckwheat flour. If you don't have buckwheat at home, you can leave it out and use 200g ground almonds instead.
For sweetening, I like to use date syrup, firstly because it is relatively cheap (I always buy it in an Arabic shop) and secondly because it has a low glycemic index and is one of the most healthy sweeteners. This means that it enters the bloodstream more slowly and thus causes your blood sugar level to rise much more slowly (in contrast to white household sugar). This is much gentler on the body and you don't have the risk of an immediate craving attack. This does not mean that you can't have a second piece of brownies, haha!
