Recipe Type: Dessert
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: http://www.sneakyveg.com/
- 700g sweet potato
- 14 dates, chopped
- 1 tbsp hot water
- 50g ground almonds
- 80g plain flour
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp golden syrup
- 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.
- 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.
- Put the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Add the sweet potato mixture and stir together.
- 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.
