Sweet Potato Hot Chocolate Brownies


It's that time of year everyone, hot chocolate season has approached us! For some of you it may have never left for which I applaud you. For me and many others it comes with the fast approach to Christmas and all I want is a delicious hot chocolate and Love Actually on my TV which is just bliss. 
But to eat a hot chocolate could be a little bit better right? 

My brownies are moist, fudgy and indulgent with a secret ingredient that makes them nice and gooey. You don't have to top them with marshmallows but it wouldn't be a hot choc without the marshmallows eh? 

Check out my other brownie recipes for more inspiration!

Recipe

Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Serves: 12 brownies


Ingredients

Brownies
250g Oat flour
500g Sweet Potato (about 2 medium)
12 Dates
2 tbsp Coconut Oil melted
270g Applesauce
6 tbsp Cacao powder
Pinch of salt
200g dark chocolate
Icing
200g Dark chocolate chips
150ml Soya milk
2 tbsp Cacao powder
Mini marshmallows


Method

✿Peel and chop your sweet potatoes into chunks and steam for about 15-20 minutes until they start to fall apart and are soft. Once they are steamed, preheat your oven to 350℉/180℃ and line and grease a rectangle baking tray.
✿In a food processor blend the sweet potato chunks and the dates until combined.
✿In a large bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients before adding the sweet potato date combination. 
✿Once you have a batter, add in the dark chocolate by breaking it into smaller pieces. This should make the brownies nice and fudgy. 
✿Spoon your batter into the baking tray and bake for 30 minutes. A knife inserted won't come out clean as these brownies are best a little under cooked. Leave to cool completely. 
Make the icing. Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave in intervals and add a splash of milk each time and making sure to stir.
✿Then add your cacao powder to thicken up a little bit. Add milk till it's a bit more runny and stir till it all comes together.
Spread the icing evenly over your brownies and then add the marshmallows quickly before the icing hardens. Enjoy!
