It is impossible not to love these soft and sweet brownies… This recipe is made with all natural ingredients, healthy and unrefined: sweet potatoes, raw cocoa and marple syrup rich in anti-oxidants.
- 2 medium 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
- 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
- a pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 180C, 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 – this will form one of the sweetest, creamiest, most delicious mixes ever!
Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl, before mixing in the sweet potato date combination. Stir well. Place into a lined baking dish and cook for about twenty minutes. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes. Remove the brownies from the tray, leaving it another few minutes before cutting them into squares – then enjoy!
