Ingredients:600g US sweet potatoes
100g vegan white chocolate
150g almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp Canadian maple syrup
12 Canadian walnuts
- Wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly and prick them several times with a sharp knife. Wrap them in damp kitchen paper and cook in the microwave at the highest setting for about 10 minutes, or in a preheated oven at 180C top/bottom heat for about one hour. Leave the oven switched on. Halve the sweet potatoes, remove the flesh and purée finely.
- Grate the chocolate and mix with the sweet potato purée, almond flour, baking powder and maple syrup until it forms a smooth dough. Spread the dough in a rectangular baking mould (approx. 14cm x 22 cm and 2cm high) lined with baking paper. Press down well.
- Spread the walnut halves on the dough, press a little and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Let the blondies cool on a cake rack, decorate with white chocolate if desired and let dry. Cut the sweet potato chocolate blondies into 12 pieces and serve.
