Brownies for me have always been a guilty pleasure, if I see one I can’t resist having 1 or 10! That’s why I love making these sweet potato brownies, they still have the delicious rich and gooey texture but with the added bonus of incredible health benefits as sweet potatoes are a great source of fibre.
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and roasted
100g of maple or brown sugar
50g cocoa powder
150g of peanut butter or almond butter
50g of butter or coconut oil
170g of ground almonds
90g of dark chocolate
100g of walnuts
Preheat the oven to 170C and cook the sweet potatoes.
Once cooked, mash the cooked sweet potato in a bowl, then add the egg, sugar and nut butter and stir well.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, leaving half of the walnuts and keep mixing.
Pour the mixture into a lined baking tray and top with the remaining walnuts.
Bake for 30 minutes then leave to cool.
Cut them up and leave them in an airtight container.
