This is definitely always a crowd pleaser and has only all natural ingredients. The sweet potatoes give these brownies a soft texture and the small amount of maple syrup allows for minimal sugar but a perfect amount of sweetness.

Theses little beauties are of course gluten-free. They are also dairy-free and egg-free and can easily last up to a week in the fridge. 
 

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup of almond meal
  • 4 tbsp cacao
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 5 strawberries & shredded coconut for topping
  • a pinch of sea salt

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Peel the sweet potatoes, cut into small pieces and steam them until soft

  • Add the mixture to a lined cake tin and place sliced strawberries and coconut on top.
