Health Benefits

This is a gluten and nut free chocolate brownie made with sweet potatoes. It has loads of fibre from the sweet potatoes, chia seeds, dates and shredded coconut. It is naturally sweetened by the sweet potatoes and the dates and healthy fat from the coconut oil. 

Note there is a difference between raw cacao and cocoa. Raw cacao is the raw form before it’s processed. It tastes more bitter and is high in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. It is available as a powder. Cocoa is a processed form, often found as a powder with added sugar and often used in baking and found in supermarkets.  Its flavour is less bitter and also has less antioxidant, mineral and vitamins due to the processing of the fruit. Pay attention to which one you select if you are looking for the most healthy and nutritious option. 

Cacao in its raw form is anti-inflammatory and is full of flavonoids and antioxidants. It’s thought to have many health benefits like improving blood flow, mood and brain function.
