Sweet potato might seem like an odd thing to have in a brownie but trust us, it works amazingly well.

Ingredients
Method

Ingredients

Brownies

  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes (cubed & roasted for 35 mins)
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 10 medjool dates (pitted & chopped)
  • 1.5 cups ground almonds
  • 1 cup cocoa (or cacao) powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

Icing

  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 large squares dark chocolate

Method

  1. 1.

    Put all the brownie ingredients in a food processor & whizz them up into a thick paste (you may want to add the ingredients in 3 or 4 stages so they blend more easily)

  2. 2.

    If your mixture seems too thick, add 1/3 cup of water & whizz everything together for a couple of minutes - this will loosen it up.

  3. 3.

    Pour the mixture into a lined baking tray & pop it in the oven at 180℃ (352℉) for 45 minutes.

  4. 4.

    Take the Brownies out of the oven, let them cool to room temperature.

  5. 5.

    Put all the icing ingredients in a pan over a low heat & melt them all together until you have a smooth paste.

  6. 6.

    Pour the icing on top of the brownie, smooth it out & then pop the whole thing in the refrigerator.

  7. 7.

    Take the brownies out of the fridge, cut into slices & enjoy. BOSH!
