The sweet potato really is the star of the show in these awesome brownies. It makes for a gooey, fudgy and utterly irresistible treat, but better still... it’s even slightly healthier than your traditional brownie. These never last long in our home.


  • 400 g sweet potato
  • 80 g coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 140


Peel the sweet potato and cut it into 2cm-thick slices. Add the sweet potato to a steel steamer basket and place it on top of a saucepan of boiling water. Cover with a lid and steam for 20 minutes or until the sweet potato is soft. Set aside to cool slightly.
