Decadent, gooey and so delicious! These sweet potato brownies are perfect as dessert at the end of a long day (a generous scoop of ice cream is recommended) or as a special treat for a special someone. They taste amazing with melted vegan chocolate and the crunch of walnuts throughout.

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees
  2. Chop your uncooked sweet potato in half, and pour over some olive oil, rub in with your hands. Place on a lined tray and pop in the oven to cook for an hour. 
  3. When it’s cooked all the way through, it should separate from the skin by peeling it gently with a fork and mashing the sweet potato to a puree.
  4. Turn the oven down to 170 degrees.
  5. In a mixing bowl, mix the sweet potato puree with maple syrup, almond cacao butter, vanilla extract and olive oil, stirring to combine.
  6. Then add your salt, baking powder, and cacao powder if using, giving it a quick stir to combine. Add flour and stir until a thick, batter-like consistency is reached.
  7. Pour batter to a lined baking dish, top with walnuts and chopped Pana chocolate.
  8. Place in oven for 30minutes, to check – insert a butter knife and it should come out relatively clean, we don’t want to overcook – it loses it’s gooeyness.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool. 
  10. Enjoy with a (big) scoop of ice cream!
