Sweet Potato Brownies | Recipe

Hello! Yes you did read that correctly, I didn't have a massive typo on the title, this is a recipe for Sweet Potato Brownies, I did mention this in my May Fitness Update. This recipe is from Deliciously Ella (with some alterations), if you haven't heard of her she is a food/health/fitness blogger extraordinaire.

I found the soft sweet potato to remind me a bit of the texture of pumpkin puree, so if you love things like Spiced Pumpkin cupcakes, you'll probably like these. The best thing, once you have found the ingredients, this recipe is super easy and the most 

2 Sweet Potatoes (Boiled until soft approx 12-15mins)
14 Dates
80g Ground Almonds
100g Whole Meal Self Raising Flour
4tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
3tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
Pinch of Salt

Set the oven to 180C or 160C Fan

Mix together the dates and sweet potato in a food processor, until it looks like a puree.

In a separate bowl mix all the other ingredients.

Add in the sweet potato mix and combine.

Place in a lined tray (I used a small roasting tray) and bake for 20 mins, or until knife comes out clean.

Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes, cut up and serve.

It is literally that simple, if you want to read about the nutritional benefits and what not click here.

Word of warning these are never going to have the buttery and sweet goodness of the normal brownie, these are something else entirely, but still moreish. I had to hide them away from myself.
