You can use orange or white sweet potato for this brownie recipe.

Getting started

Preheat oven to 180C.


Line a 20cm square cake tin with baking powder.


Steam the sweet potato until very soft.


Place the sweet potato, almond meal, flour, cinnamon, dates, cacao powder, maple syrup and salt in a food processor and process until a smooth batter forms.


Pour the mixture into the lined cake tin and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.


Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes.


Remove from the tin and cut into even squares.


Dust with a little extra cocao powder and serve alone or with fresh berries.

Annabelle's tip

f you don’t get through the whole batch at once (or you would rather not), you can slice the brownies and freeze them as individual portions for up to 3 months. Defrost overnight in the fridge or on the counter and feel free to pop them in a hot oven for 5 minutes.
