I loved loved loved loved loved this recipe!

I have to be honest baking is not something I am good at or I enjoy. But for these amazingly yummy and healthy chocolate brownies I am quite happy to invest 70 min of my pressure time.

Preparation time: 20-30 min    

Cooking time: 50 min



  • 500g of sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 12 medjool dates
  • 6 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 100g of ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100g of ground oats
  • 6 tablespoons of raw cacao powder


  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of cacao powder


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C (fan).
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes, cut them into chunks and place into a steamer for about twenty minutes, until they become really soft.
  3. Remove them and add them to a food processor with the pitted dates.
  4. Remaining ingredients into a bowl, before mixing in the sweet potato date combination. Stir well.
  5. Place into a lined baking dish and cook for about forty-five to fifty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie with a fork and bring it out dry.
  6. While the brownies are cooking make the icing by simply melting all the ingredients together and stirring well, then place in a fridge for 15 to firm up a bit.
  7. Remove the brownies from the tray and leave to cool completely before icing. Spread the icing on top.
  8. Cut into desired pieces and enjoy!
