Sweet Potato choc-chip brownies

This recipe is so decadent tasting that you’d never know it wasn’t unhealthy! It can be made vegan (using darker chocolate or omitting the chocolate chips entirely) and/or gluten free (by using gluten free flour, such as rice flour), so there’s something for everyone! If you do not own a food processor, mash the sweet potato and omit the dates, using 70g date/agave/maple syrup or honey instead.


These can be kept in the fridge or freezer, but don’t keep for longer than a week – not that they’ve ever lasted that long in my house!



  • 700g sweet potato (1 very large or 2 medium)
  • 15 dates
  • 50g 80%+ chocolate
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 100g wholewheat flour (or gluten free alternative)
  • 4-5tbsp cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3tbsp agave syrup


  • Scrub and cut up the sweet potato(es) and steam for 20 minutes, or until completely soft.
  • Mix together the ground almonds, flour, cocoa, salt and chopped chocolate to a bowl
  • Once the sweet potatoes are done, blend in a food processor with the dates.
  • Mix the sweet potato with the agave syrup, before transferring to the dry ingredients bowl.
  • Mix thoroughly
  • Spoon into a small cake tin or loaf tin.
  • Cook for 25-30 minutes
