Sweet Potato & Macadamia Choc Brownies (Gluten free, Dairy free, Fructose Free)



12 portion(s)


  • 120 g Raw macadamias
  • 80 g 85% dark chocolate, roughly broken up
  • 400 g previously roasted sweet potato or pumpkin, peeled (this is about 2 medium sized sweet potatoes)
  • 100 g Rice malt syrup
  • 60 g coconut oil
  • 40 g Coconut Flour
  • 30 g raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • pinch sea salt
  • 3 eggs

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Add macadamia nuts & chocolate to bowl. Chop speed 4, 3-5 seconds (or until chopped to your liking) or if you like random chunky chopped nuts -  Closed lid Turbo, 1 second, 2-3 times. Set aside for later.

  3. Puree sweet potato or pumpkin. Speed 4, 5-10 sec until smooth. Scrape down bowl.

  4. Add all ingredients except nuts. Mix speed 5, 5 sec. Scrape down bowl and mix another 5 sec, speed 5.

  5. Add chopped nuts & chocolate. Stir through. Counter-clockwise operation speed 4, 5-10 seconds until combined.

  6. Pour into brownie/slice tin and bake for 25-30mins at 180 degrees. This is a very moist brownie so it can be hard to tell when it's cooked... keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn!


Accessories you need



Roast the sweet potato or pumpkin whole at 180 degrees for 45min-1hr and then scrape out the flesh to puree it.

I've also done a mix of macadamia and brazil nuts which is delicious and the brazil nuts add extra nutrients. You can use any nuts you like!

    Delicious recipe - thank you! I didn't have any macadamia nuts not spilt between brazil and walnuts. I also subbed agave syrup and maple syrup as I didn't have rice malt syrup. Used pumpkin as that what was in the fridge. Awesome - kids love it!

    Thanks for making me look like a kitchen rock-star -- my bookclub ladies loved this! I used agave syrup instead of rice malt syrup, and it was fine.

    Thanks for this recipe - My 4yo daughter is begging for more as we speak.  I used walnuts for the nuts and used avocado oil instead of the coconut oil, and added a little more coconut flour.  Great Results!  Will be making again!    Really great to see some healthier recipe options.
