Sweet Potato Brownies

These sweet potato brownies are delicious! As they are egg, dairy and gluten free, it is a handy recipe to have up your sleeve to cater for those with allergies.

I used a food processor to make this recipe – thanks so much to my thoughtful mother in law who bought me one for my birthday this year! I have been able to make many recipes which I could not have done so previously without it.

The recipe requires both almond flour and whole almonds. The whole almonds give a nice little crunch and great texture for the brownie.

I had my counting obsessed preschooler help me count out all the pieces. It made 20.

The sweet potato brownie is incredibly moist and goes delightfully with a cup of tea at morning tea time.
