When looking for gluten-free baking mix, it’s important to find the right mix that is good for your health. Just because something is gluten-free, it doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Turn over and find the label to many ‘gluten-free’ goods and you may find very high sugar content and artificial additives.

 

A rule of thumb with finding gluten-free baking mixes is to find mixes that use naturally gluten-free whole food ingredients like bean flour, nut flours, rice flour, potato starch, ancient grain flours, such as sorghum and quinoa. These flours are the key to successfully making gluten-free pastries such as brownies, pancakes and cookies.

Enjoy gluten-free baking with pre-made mixes like Bob’s Redmill Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Mix and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix.

Sweet Potato Brownies

By: Deliciously Ella 

Overview

  • Serves: 10
  • Prep: 20M
  • Cooking: 50M
  • Total: 70M
  • Difficulty: medium

For the brownies

  • 500g of sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 12 medjool dates
  • 6 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 100g of ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100g of ground oats
  • 6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder

For the icing

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of cacao powder

Directions:

  1. Start by pre-heating the oven to 180C (fan), then peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them into chunks and place into a steamer for about twenty minutes, until they become really soft.
  2. Once they are perfectly soft and beginning to fall apart remove them and add them to a food processor with the pitted dates.
  3. Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl, before mixing in the sweet potato date combination. Stir well.
  4. Place into a lined baking dish and cook for about forty-five to fifty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie with a fork and bring it out dry. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes – this is really important as it needs this time to stick together!
  5. While the brownies are cooking make the icing by simply melting all the ingredients together and stirring well, then place in the freezer for 15 minutes and then the fridge for 15 to firm up a bit.
  6. Remove the brownies from the tray and leave to cool completely before icing otherwise your icing will melt! Spread the icing on top, cut into squares, dig in and enjoy!
