Chocolate and Walnut Brownie... this was a hit with the kids and used up some leftover sweet potato we had around... yes sweet potato!
I've used dehydrated Raspberry powder on the top to make it look a bit fancy. Try this out for a healthy alternative to the usual sugar and gluten laden brownie recipes. It's also egg free being vegan so great for those of you whom eggs are a problem.
Vegan Chocolate and Walnut Brownie

Raspberry powder to decorate
In a food processor add the potato, dates, maple syrup and coconut oil. Wiz until smooth. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix in the wet sweet potato mixture. Spread into a lined slice pan and bake at 180 deg C for 45-55 minutes. Allow to cool completely before taking out of the pan. Sift over powder and slice.
Serve with coconut yogurt or organic yogurt and fresh raspberries.
