Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies

I love grabbing one or two of these before a workout or run. Due to their high complex carbohydrate content they are a perfect slow release energy source to fuel exercise, especially long distance runs. Additionally they are also great a post workout snack to replenish your muscle glycogen stores, which will aid muscle recovery. Your body will also benefit from all the nutritious, wholesome ingredients these brownies contain. Basically it is a win, win situation!

Brownies Glaze

This recipe contains a delicious chocolate glaze, which adds to the awesomeness of each bite. However they are just as good without the glaze, which makes them easier to pack and transport for an on the go snack. For more ideas on healthy snacks click here.

I say chocolate, however the chocolate flavour comes from carob not cacao. Carob is a seed, that comes from the pod of the carob tree, which unlike cacao is caffeine free. This is great for anyone who avoids caffeine, as you get still get the awesome chocolate flavour without the caffeine.

Although carob is much sweeter in taste than cacao, you can’t really tell the difference in flavour. The sweetness of carob is actually beneficial in baking, as you don’t have to add so much sweetener to get a great flavour.

There are many benefits to consuming carob; it helps to prevent cancer and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. It also aids digestion and weight loss due to its high fibre content. The benefits are down to its high amount of vitamins and minerals.

Nonetheless, cacao is also a major health food! Click here to read all about the benefits.
