Ok so these brownies might be one of the best things I have ever made. No exaggeration.

They were gooey (like a brownie should be) and chocolatey and also ONLY made with healthy ingredients! Crazy.

I recommend as a post – yoga snack. Or with soya custard as a delicious desert.

Here is how I made them…


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup of raisins / sultanas / dates
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 100g buckwheat flour
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • oat / soy / almond milk


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into chunks. Then steam for about 20 minutes until soft.
  • Blend together sweet potatoes (once cool) and your dried fruit. I used raisins just because that is what we had in the house, but works very well with medjool dates.
  • Add wet ingredients (sweet potato mix) to a bowl with ground almonds, flour and cacao powder. Add your choice of plant based milk to the mix if it looks dry.
  • Pour into a tray and bake for about 20 minutes. Check if they are done and give them a little longer if needed, just until they are cooked all the way through.
  • Leave to cool.

I drizzled mine with tahini as a finishing touch.


I hope you enjoy these guys!
