Potatoes in a chocolate pastry? Half of you will probably be mentally going through the list of crazy ingredients for healthier alternatives to classic pastries; and besides zucchini, carrot & co. have also come across sweet potatoes in baking recipes. The other half probably thinks it’s a mistake – or wonders how this will go together.So brownies that aren’t a high-fat, high-sugar calorie bomb? As a big chocolate lover, I’m definitely critical, but also curious about how the lighter alternatives can keep up with the original. Let me tell you one thing: this recipe definitely can!

  • Blend with the sweet potato and banana puree from the food processor until smooth, and finally fold in the chocolate drops.
  • Pour into a greased baking dish and bake for about 45 minutes.
  • For the frosting, melt 1 TBSP coconut oil and 2 TBSP almond butter in the microwave. Mix with 1 TBSP agave syrup, 1 TSP almond extract and 5 TBSP baking cocoa. Gradually add the almond milk until smooth.
  • Spread your brownies with the frosting once they are cool and enjoy!
