Nutritional values

Dates not only give the sweet potato brownies a subtle sweetness, but they also provide the body with blood pressure-lowering potassium and blood-building iron. Sweet potatoes provide us with beta-carotene, which on the one hand protects the body from free radical damage as an antioxidant and on the other hand serves as a precursor of vitamin A.

You can also replace the ground almonds in the sweet potato brownies with dates with ground hazelnuts, which brings even more nutty flavor. Instead of sweet potatoes, the vegan brownie can also be made with pumpkin.
