Our recipe for protein brownies uses sweet potato, yes, you read that correctly, sweet potato instead of flour. Now we know what you're thinking... why would anyone use sweet potato to make brownies? Don't worry, we thought the exact same thing before we came up with this recipe.

It's cool though, you won't be disappointed. The sweet potato is actually an amazing flour substitute. This also means it's also adds more fibre to the recipe (this is a good thing because fibre can help keep you feeling full).

Trust us, once you eat them, you would have no idea that these protein brownies were made with sweet potato. For the protein powder, we used this whey protein powder but you could use any you have in your cupboard. Give it a try and let us know how you find them in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

 2 scoops chocolate whey protein powder
 1 egg
 1 tsp baking powder
 2 tbsp chopped nuts
 3 tbsp cocoa powder

To make the sweet potato brownies, you'll first need to preheat an oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Peel and chop the sweet potatoes and boil in a pan of water for around 15 minutes before draining them. Tip the cooked sweet potato on a plate so it can begin to cool.

In a food processor add the raw oats and quickly blitz so they resemble a flour.

4

Add the protein powder, egg, honey, baking powder, coconut oil and chopped nuts to the food processor and give it a quick blitz.
