Sweet Potato and Chocolate Brownies
Recipe Type: Dessert
Author: Sneaky Veg
An unusual twist on a classic treat – thank you Sneaky Veg for sharing this with us. There’s a very nice selection of veggie recipes on Mandy’s blog:
  • 700g sweet potato
  • 14 dates, chopped
  • 1 tbsp hot water
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 80g plain flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  1. Peel and chop the sweet potato, then steam for about 20 minutes until soft. Grease and base line a smallish baking dish. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Put the dates in a bowl and add the hot water. Mash them together until the dates resemble a paste. Add the sweet potato and mash together. Alternatively put them all in a food processor and whizz up together.
  3. Put the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Add the sweet potato mixture and stir together.
  4. Bake in the oven until you can insert a skewer in the centre and it comes out clean (about 40 minutes). Leave for 10 minutes in the tin – to allow it to stick together – then remove and cut into squares.
