Sweet potato brownies. 


I’ve been wanting to try and make sweet potato brownies for a while now, and today was finally the day for it!

I followed an online recipe for kidney bean brownies but replaced the kidney beans with sweet potato and made a few more adjustments to the recipe.

They have turned out well! I would say they give more of a dark chocolate taste as apposed to a classic milk chocolatey brownie taste but that can be fixed by adding in milk chocolate chips. 

Ingredients: 

Around 250g sweet potato

1tbspn bicarbonate of soda

1tbspn olive oil

1tbspn vanilla extract 

75g cocoa powder 

60g honey 

2 eggs

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a baking tin. 

Start by peeling and chopping the sweet potato, then placing in a microwaveable bowl with water and microwaving until soft. Meanwhile place the rest of the ingredients into a food processor and blitz. Once the sweet potatoes are ready drain and add to the food processor, then give a final blitz until all the lumps of sweet potato are gone. Transfer to the prepared baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes.

I use a fan oven which always seems to cook things quicker than recipes say so you may need to bake for a little longer depending on your oven. 

Slice up and enjoy when cool!

I cut up into 9 squares.
