Got a craving for deliciously gooey brownies?
With this super-simple recipe from Niall Kirkland, you’ll be able to whip up a batch in no time at all, using just a handful of cupboard ingredients.
You might be more used to seeing sweet potatoes as fries that accompany a burger — but trust us, they work just as well in this sweet recipe too. Full of natural sweetness and plenty of moisture, they’re ideal for keeping your brownies super-gooey and thick.
In a few easy steps, you’ll have a whole tray of indulgent, chocolatey treats (that taste even better than the shop-bought kind).
- 300g sweet potato
- 125g nut butter of choice
- 70g maple syrup
- 25g Organic Cacao Powder
- A crack of sea salt
- A handful of chocolate chips
- First, preheat the oven to 175°C/ 350°F.
- Then, bring a saucepan of water to boil. Peel and chop your sweet potatoes and then steam for 15-20 minutes.
- Once steamed, mash your sweet potato once and transfer it to a mixing bowl. Add the nut butter, maple syrup, cacao powder, and a crack of salt.
- Mix all ingredients together well until you have a smooth brownie batter.
- Transfer the batter to a lined loaf tin or baking dish, sprinkle with chocolate chips if you’re using them, and bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and leave to cool before slicing into ten pieces. Dig in!
