I've been really enjoying the vegan life lately, although I'm mostly just vegetarian. I slowly want to make the change from being vegetarian to being completely vegan. I'm not sure what I'll be eating in the future, I guess only the future can tell, right? Anyway, I've been wanting to bake vegan sweet potato brownies for such a long time and when I finally managed to get all the ingredients without one missing, I settled myself in the kitchen and got cooking.
What do you need?
3 medium sized sweet potatoes (500g)
85g of ground almonds
100g of buckwheat flour
14 medjool dates
4 - 5 tablespoons of cacao powder
3 tablespoons of cane sugar
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Start peeling the sweet potatoes and cut them into chunks. Steam them for about 20 minutes until they're soft and starting to fall apart. Put them in a bowl and mix them together with the dates. Once your mixture is ready, add the remaining ingredients to your dough and mix it up.
Put your mixture into a baking dish and hop them in the oven for about 30 minutes. They will look really soft and not ready once they're out of the oven, but they need to cool down for about 10 minutes and leave them for another couple minutes to cool down completely. Bon appetit!
