This brownie needs little by way of introduction, which is good given I am very fatigued and achy today.

If I say that we have made this brownie recipe TWICE in the space of just FOUR DAYS, you begin to understand just how amazingly delicious, moreish, light, chocolately, good, Β and many other superlatives besides, these little brownies really are.

This is now my go to brownie recipe. It is simply THE BEST. Try it and judge for yourself, I think you’ll find them ridiculously good and wonder how you’ve survived this long without these brownies in your life!

The sweet potato keeps this brownie wonderfully moist and the cocoa provides a deep chocolate flavour without it being overly rich. Very quick and simple to make, these brownies can be thrown together in minutes.

Gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free, this is a highly healthy chocolate brownie.

So without further a do, here’s the recipe:

Makes 8

You will need:

Dry ingredients

  • 125g / 4oz rice flour
  • 75g / 3oz good quality pure cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

Wet ingredients

  • 175g / 6oz sweet potato, cooked and purΓ©ed smooth
  • 250g / 80z date syrup (I used Meridian)
  • 175g / 6oz dairy free sunflower spread melted and cooled a little (or your choice of dairy butter or other dairy butter substitute)
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  4. Place all of the wet ingredients into a second larger bowl and mix together until well combined
  5. Sieve the dry ingredients gradually, roughly 1/3 at a time, into the wet ingredients, stirring well to combine.
  6. Once the brownie batter is all well combined, pour it into your pre-lined cake tin.
  7. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes until set on top but still lovely and gooey in the middle.
  8. Cool in the tin and then cut into portions.
  9. Eat and enjoy πŸ™‚
