Sweet potato brownies

Deliciously Ella has done a lot for healthy cooking. She is young, pretty and have taken her own health in her hands. I love her recipes, but sorry Ella I have pimped your Sweet Potato brownies and made them even more yummy. This recipe is also been halved, since I only had one sweet potato!

So here is my even better version:

1 Sweet potato 
7 Medjool date, pitted
1/3 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
2 Tbsp Raw Cocoa powder
2 Tbsp rice syrup
2 Tbsp coconut oil
Pinch of salt
2 or 3 Tbsp almond milk
And some dark 70% chocolate 
Cocoa nibs

Set the oven to 180 degrees. 
Stab the sweet potato all over, wrap in a piece of kitchen roll and in microwave for 6- 7 mins .
Scoop out the flesh of the potato into food processor and add the 7 dates, coconut oil, rice syrup, salt, vanilla and almond milk (or water). Whizz until smooth paste, and add the dry ingredients (almonds, buckwheat flour, cocoa powder). Whizz again and you might want add more liquid. Scrap it into an small oiled Pyrex glass dish or other.
Into the oven for 20 mins. As soon as you take out the brownies out of the oven, spread the dark chocolate on the hot brownies and let it melt. When it is melted, spread out with a spatula and drizzle while still soft with some Cocoa nibs.
Now do yourself a favour, resist to start eating it until it is cold - good luck!
