Prep Time: 15M

Serves: 4

There's more where this came from!


  • 2 ½ cups stewed and mashed sweet potato
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • ½ cup raw cacao
  • 4 Tbsp agave or carob nectar
  • 2 tsp natural vanilla
  • 250g of dark chocolate [UK 9 oz]
  • 2 Tbsp of coconut oil or dairy-free margarine
  • 2 cups of almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts (or hazelnuts)

This is one of those recipes that will leave you wondering why you haven’t tried gluten-free baking before. There are no complicated flour mixes and it is perfect as a dessert or a gluten-free cake option.


  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together.
  • Mix the mashed sweet potato with all the other ingredients.
  • Mix the two together, mixing  well, the batter is not as liquid as a normal brownie batter.
  • Spread out in a 33 x 33 cm (16,5 x 16,5 inch ) baking tin and bake at 180 °C for about 20-25 minutes (test with a skewer, when it comes out clean, the brownies are ready)
  • Leave to cool before cutting into squares.
