Sweet Potato and Black Bean Brownies

5-ingredient dessert Oct 22, 2021

Seriously, who doesn't want a healthy brownie recipe?!? You definitely have to try these out.  I love a good brownie, especially when I know they are packed with nutrients and not just empty calories.

If you don't like nuts, or you want to send these to school with your kids, either skip the walnuts, or add in pumpkin or sunflower seeds instead so you still get some extra protein and good fats. You can also use coconut oil instead of olive oil. Enjoy!

 
Serves: 12

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 50 mins 
 
What You Need:
9 oz. (250g) sweet potato
1 14oz. (400g) can black beans, drained
½ cup (60g) walnuts
3.5 oz. (100g) coconut sugar
1 bar dark chocolate, chopped
 
*3 tbsp. olive oil
 
What You Need to To:

Peel, chop and boil the sweet potatoes until they are soft. Set aside to cool.

Heat the oven to 360°F (180°C) and prepare an 11x7-inches (28x18cm) baking tin lined with baking paper.

Place the cooled sweet potatoes, black beans, walnuts, sugar and chocolate into a food processor and blitz until smooth. Next add in the olive oil and blitz again.

Transfer the batter into the baking tin and bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack, before cutting into 12 squares. Store in an airtight container and try not to eat them all at once😁.
