Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 1/2 cup natural cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup chestnut flour or almond flour
- 1 3/4 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla flavoring
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2/3 cup roughly chopped walnuts
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds, hemp seeds, or chia seeds
- 3 tbsp unsweetened soy, hemp, or almond milk
- 3 regular or 3 Medjool dates, pitted
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp natural cocoa powder
- 4-5 tbsp water to thin icing
- For the brownie, preheat the oven to 350˚F. Mix together the cocoa powder and flour and then mix into the mashed sweet potato. Stir in cinnamon, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, walnuts, seeds, and nondairy milk.
- Press dough into a lightly oiled 9 x 9-inch baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. The brownies will firm up after they have cooled.
- For the icing, process dates with a food processor until they form a paste, then add remaining ingredients. Spread on brownies after they have cooled. Cut into squares.
