A taste sensation straight out of the oven!

Who would have thought that sweet potato would be so delicious in baked goods. When this slice came out of the oven it was really delicious and l admit that l had two pieces because it was very tasty. I also have a liking for eating my treats straight out of the freezer and this slice is really good cold and hard as well. The recipe is really sweet so if you need to you could cut down on the Stevia granules or just have a small piece.

Ingredients:

1 medium sized sweet potato peeled, steamed, mashed and cooled (about 2 cups when mashed)

1 dessert spoon of granulated stevia

Just under ½ a cup of raw organic honey

¼ cup organic coconut oil

2 free range eggs (beaten)

1 cup of coconut flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon all spice

½ teaspoon organic vanilla essence

2 teaspoons baking powder (gluten free).

Method:

Pre-heat a fan forced oven to approximately 160 degrees celsius or a bit higher. Grease a slice tray with organic coconut oil. I used a glass dish and that worked well. Line the base with baking paper.

Gently mix all of the ingredients together with a spoon, ensuring everything is evenly distributed. Smooth the top of the mixture with the back of the spoon so it is nice and even. Place in the oven and cook until golden on top and just coming away from the edge of the baking dish.

When the dish is cooked remove it from the oven and leave to rest for a few minutes in the dish. Run a knife carefully around the edge of the slice and as it cools a bit the slice will pull away from the dish. Place the cooling rack on top of the slice and with a t-towel so you don’t burn your hands flip the cooling rack and slice tray up-side down so that the slice is out of the dish and on the tray. I then used a second cooling rack to turn the slice over to the right side. I cut the slice into small pieces and after l had tried a couple and it had cooled, l wrapped each piece individually with cling wrap and placed in the freezer. This would be delicious as a dessert but l will use it mainly as a snack for when l am out and have my lunch box with me.
