First, these are my favourite brownies ever. Second, I love the cookie dough topping even more. I often have some of the dough in the refrigerator ready to roll into balls, or to use as a filling for truffles when I need a little sweet fix. This combination is a game changer in the brownie world. It is perfect for kids – getting in the nutrients from both the sweet potato and chickpeas, without them even realising they are eating something healthy!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

Brownies

Quantity Ingredient
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 5 cm pieces
14 medjool dates, pitted
70g ground almonds
65g buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
40g cacao powder
60ml maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
125ml plant-based milk

Cookie dough topping

Quantity Ingredient
400g tinned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
60ml maple syrup
80g almond butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
90g grain-sweetened chocolate chips

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Begin by steaming the sweet potatoes for 10–15 minutes, or until soft. Transfer to a food processor or blender and blitz with the remaining brownie ingredients.
  3. Once a smooth mixture has formed, pour the mixture into a lined or greased square 23 cm brownie tin and bake for 20–30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  4. To make the chickpea cookie dough, place all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a food processor and blitz until a beautiful cookie dough-like mix has formed. Fold through the chocolate chips.
  5. Smooth the cookie dough topping over the brownies in the tin and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Cut into pieces before serving.
