Sweet Potato Brownies


Makes 10 brownies


  1.  2 medium to large sweet potatoes
  2. 2/3 of a cup of ground almonds
  3. —-Option: Add some chopped nuts to taste
  4. 1/2 a cup of buckwheat or brown rice flour (100g)
  5.  14 medjool dates
  6. 4 tablespoons of raw cacao
  7.  3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  8.  a pinch of salt   —   —   — On a personal note:  I  had more than I needed so I took about 2 cups of this stuff, added some baking powder, nuts, raisins and produced some awesome sweet potato bread puddingish thin.  I cut it in small bites &  drizzled it with confectioner’s sugar & sour cream – delicious! Kids loved it and it was mostly sweet potatoes!


  1. Pre heat over to 350F
  2. Peel sweet potatoes,cut into chunks.  Put into a steamer for 20 min until very soft.
  3. Put sweet potatoes in food processor with the dates.
  4. Put the remaining ingredients into a bowl and mix.
  5. Then mix in the sweet potato/date combination. Stir well.
  6. Place into a lined baking dish and cook for about twenty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie cake with a fork bringing it out dry.
  7. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes – this is really important as it needs this time to stick together!
  8. Remove the brownies from the tray, leaving it another few minutes before cutting them into squares – then dig in and enjoy!
