Sweet Potato Brownies ♡

‘What a strange combo…’ I hear you say.
Strange maybe, but the strange substitutions mean they are guilt free and are a clean pudding option! AND they taste amazing.

I’ve been seeing these babies all over my Twitter and Instagram feeds and finally got around to making some.
I used Madeleine Shaw’s recipe as a guide for mine.
What do you need?

  • 150g sweet potato (I used 1 medium potato)
  • 50g of honey
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 50g coconut oil (you can use butter)
  • 100g of almond flour (I used ground almonds)
  • 30g of raw cocoa powder
  • tiny pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • 75g-100g of walnuts (depending on how much you like them!)
(Some of the ingredients can be hard to source in your local shops, but easily sourced on amazon. Raw cacao powderAlmond flourCoconut Oil)

1. Weigh out all of your ingredients into little pots as you can see in the picture above. 

2. Peel and chop the sweet potato into chunks. Place them in a covered pan with some water to steam, or if you have a steamer like me, use that :). This takes about 15-20 minutes. Make sure they are soft all the way through. Drain and cool.

3. Whilst the potatoes are cooling, blend the eggs and coconut oil in a food processor/ blender. Then add and blend in the honey and sweet potato.

4. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients (ground almonds, cocoa, salt and bicarb soda) together. Next add this into the blender with the other ingredients until thoroughly combined!
5. Once combined, add the walnuts and pulse the blender a couple of times to lightly crush them.

6. Pour your mixture into an oven proof container. Make sure you grease the container lightly with a bit of butter or coconut oil to avoid the mixture getting stuck!
7. Oven bake for 15-20 minutes.

8. Resist tucking straight in! Leave the brownies to cool for 15 minutes before cutting up in whatever fashion you fancy 🙂

Me and mum enjoyed a slice of brownie with a cup of tea.
Mum had a little scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on hers and I had a spoon of natural yoghurt.

Honestly these are well worth a go! I know some of the ingredients can be expensive to buy, but because the final product is rich with pure ingredients,you don’t need to eat as much so it goes a lot further!

Let me know what you think if you make them 🙂
