With veganism very much on the rise, there is no reason at all why a staple favourite, such as the chocolate brownie, should be out of reach to followers of this chosen lifestyle. Super squidgy and simple to make (in fact, they're no bake!), discover one of our favourite fudgy vegan brownie recipes and how to make them with sweet potatoes below.
Add the pecan nuts to a food processor and blend into a flour.
Scoop the flesh from the sweet potatoes and add to the food processor.
Add in the 2 tbsp cocoa powder, pinch of salt, the dates and the vegan chocolate protein powder.
Blend everything together into a smooth mixture.
Line a small square deep-sided baking dish with parchment paper and spoon in the mixture.
Squash the mixture right into the corners and level it out with the back of a spoon.
Place in the fridge to chill for two hours.
Dust the surface of the brownie with the remaining cocoa powder and cut into 16 small squares.
Press a pecan nut into the top of each brownie square to finish.
