Serves: 9 brownies
  • 2 sweet potatoes (540 gram)
  • 20 small dates (160 gram)
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (60 gram)
  • 8 tablespoons cacao powder (70 gram) - but you can add even more for a super intense chocolate flavor
  • 160 gram flour
  • 100 gram walnuts
  • pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  2. Peel and dice the two sweet potatoes, add them to a steamer over low-medium heat.
  3. Steam the potatoes until they are very soft. This will take approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Add the steamed sweet potatoes, dates and maple syrup to a blender or food processor, and blend until a thick, caramel like paste appeared.
  5. Transfer the paste to a big bowl and stir in the cacao powder, flour and cinnamon. Stir well. Add the walnuts and stir those through too.
  6. Put the mixture in a brownie tin lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake the brownie for about 25 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius
  8. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing as they can be a bit crumbly while very warm.
