DELICIOUSLY ELLA'S SWEET POTATO BROWNIES RECIPE 10 brownies, 45 mins
- 2 medium to large sweet potatoes
- 2/3 of a cup of ground almonds
- 1/2 a cup of buckwheat or brown rice flour
- 14 medjool dates
- 4 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
- 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
- a pinch of salt
- Start by pre-heating the oven to 180-C // 350-F
- Then peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them into chunks and place into a steamer for about twenty minutes, until they become really soft.
- Once they are perfectly soft and beginning to fall apart remove them and add them to a food processor with the pitted dates. Blend until a smooth, creamy mix forms.
- Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl, before mixing in the sweet potato date combination. Stir well.
- Place the mix into a lined baking dish and cook for about twenty to thirty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie cake with a fork bringing it out dry. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes – this is really important, as the brownies need this time to stick together!
