Sweet Potato Brownie recipe

God this is goooooooood. Make it for Christmas!

I made it for my mum's birthday and it was a huge hit, your family will not be disappointed with the raw chocolately flavour. And you won't feel sick or bloated afterwards because obviously it's healthy as.

It's a win win.  

It's also goof proof - the sweet potato makes it so moist and fudgey, like a proper brownie should be. You can sub in coconut sugar or rapadura sugar if you want to be extra. Plus it's gluten-free, dairy free and vegan. 

Adapted from The Healthy Baker by Teresa Cutter.


500g boiled sweet potato, cooled and smashed (you can roast it if you're keen, but I threw it in a pot and it worked)

200g (1 cup) coconut oil, solid state

125ml (1/2 cup) rice malt syrup 

1/3 cup monkfruit sweetener (available at Woolies now!)
