Ingredients

For the brownies
  • 500 g sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 15 dates
  • 120 ml maple syrup
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • 100 g ground oats
  • 50 g cacao powder
For the icing
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of cacao powder

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes, cut them into chunks and boil them for about 15 minutes, until they become really soft.
  • Then add them to a food processor with the pitted dates.
  • Put the remaining ingredients into another bowl and stir well.
  • Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  • 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. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes.
  • While the brownies are cooking, make the icing.
  • Melt all the ingredients together and stir well, then place in the freezer for 15 minutes and then in the fridge for 15 minutes to firm up.
  • Remove the brownies from the tray and leave to cool completely before icing, otherwise your icing will melt! Spread the icing on top using a spatula.
  • You may decorate with a few smashed almonds.
