My favourite sweet potato brownies

I've made these so many times I've lost count, I highly recommend them.

minimalistbaker.com/fudgy-s...

I use 252g cooked sweet potato, 160ml maple syrup, 129g peanut butter, (I don't use any oil), 55g cacao powder (I prefer to cocoa), 68g oat flour (I make my own by grinding down oats in my food processor), 61g chopped pecans, 48g dark chocolate chips and 90/140 ml of almond or oat milk. These are absolutely stunning. The recipe doesn't include milk but this makes them extra gooey.

Happy baking

Honestly Debs they really are and I use GF oats. I've been eating then right through following the low fodmap diet and I've never reacted to them, there's not enough sweet potato in them to make them high fodmap xx😋😋

Believe you me, you won't be disappointed. Just a tip, I cook the sweet potato in it's skin in the microwave, much quicker than the oven😋😋

Thank you crazyfitness, I’m glad I found this forum I’m getting lots of good ideas for meals and treats!

I'm so pleased. It's an excellent forum and just ask if there's anything you need to know.😊😊

I’m sure I will, I have some ingredients that are new to me so I’m looking for different ways of using them. Thanks.

What ingredients do you have?

Red rice and quinoa, and white, red and black quinoa, also whole chestnuts.

I use quinoa a fair bit and this recipe is awesome. I've got IBS and followed the low fodmap diet,I'm so much better. This is one of the recipes use and it's so good. Just a tip, cook the carrots a little bit before adding the rest of the ingredients and I also mix the quinoa with the rest of the ingredients ie. I don't serve it on the side.

I’ve also got IBS and attempting to learn about and follow the low fodmap diet. Thank you for the link, I have had a look and it does look very nutritious but I would need to adapt it for low acid/high alkaline.

The low fodmap has really improved my life as before I had constant acute nausea with diarrhoea and was miserable. He Monash University website is the best for overall but for anything specific to the UK the Kings College London site is ok ie. for cornflakes say from Tesco.

I'm sorry you also have to look at low acid/high alkaline that makes things harder.

I'll go through my low fodmap book and let you have some recipes within the next week or so.

I’m glad you are much improved since starting the fodmap diet, my symptoms are nowhere near as bad as yours. Thank you for the website suggestions, that’s very helpful.

It is a steep learning curve, but once I have a list and good stock of ingredients I will be able to plan and adapt recipes.

I appreciate your help.🙂

I cannot believe how much better I am, it's amazing. Believe it or not barley and pea protein are 2 big triggers for me.

I have the Monash University low fodmap app and it's very good. I also have the Kings College London one but I think it's a waste of time.

Very best of luck and I will share whatever I have with you.👍😊

What a relief for you, it can take a long time to find out the cause/s. It’s good to know what triggers it but very time consuming checking the ingredients. I’m finding out that it’s better to cook from scratch. Mine is also caused by stress.

I had a look at the Kings website, and will check out the Monash University one.

Thank you, that would be great.

It really is, I'd got so down but as soon as the low fodmap started working I was on cloud 9. You are right, I cook from scratch just about all the time, I may have the odd one or two things ready made but it's rare. Stress is a big trigger, have you thought about meditation?

The Monash one is very good and they created the diet.

You're welcome.😊👍🌈

these sound great, we have someone with an allergy to peanuts in our household, do you think they would work with almond butter?
