  • Woolworths Diemersfontein Chocolate Shiraz 2016


  • 230 g sweet potatoes
  • 6 dates, pitted and chopped
  • 210 g chickpea flour
  • 105 g cocoa powder
  • 8 T honey
  • 1 T vanilla paste
  • Raspberries, to garnish
  • Hazelnuts, crushed and roasted, to garnish
  • 3- 4 eggs

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Halve the sweet potatoes and bake for 45 minutes, or until tender. Scoop out the flesh and mash with the dates to make a paste.

Add the chickpea flour, cocoa, honey, eggs and vanilla paste and mix.

Line a 26 x 12 x 7 cm loaf tin with baking paper and spoon in the mixture. Bake for 40 minutes, or until just set.

Serve with the raspberries and hazelnuts.

Cook's note: If you like a traditional brownie but want to try a different version that has a lovely earthy flavour thanks to the chickpea flour, this is for you. You’ll also love the dense, cake-like texture.

    Made this today, very tasty just find it a bit dry. Not too sure how to fix this and still keep it semi healthy. Also just baked it for 30min. If I did it for longer it would have been a brick. Very rich but will definitely try it again and tweek the recipe a bit.
