Gooey Sweet Potato Brownie

This was a hit with all the family and would go perfect with a Chocolate Chiller Green Smoothie.  It's egg free, dairy free, gluten free and you could swap the almonds for sunflower seeds to make nut free if you wish.
Sweet potato in a brownie may sound strange but you can't taste it at all. Sweet potatoes are a good source for vitamins B6, C, D and iron and magnesium.

  • about 2 cups mashed sweet potato
  • 14 medjool dates
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 4 tbs cacao
  • 4 tbs maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Place almonds in food processor and process until finely ground. Add pitted dates and pulse until dates are finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients and process until combined.

Pour into slice tray and bake for about 30 minutes or until cooked in the middle. It will be quite soft even once cooked.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing. Best served warm but just as good out of the fridge and served with coconut yoghurt.
