Yes, a brownie that is made out of…..a potato. Don’t be scared folks, these are actually a very pleasant treat and are also gluten, sugar and dairy free – perfect for your clean eating regime!

They are lovely and dense with a rich chocolate flavour and they would be extra delicious when topped with the chocolate frosting from the cake in a mug recipe. And if you happen to be in process of weaning just make up an extra batch of the sweet potato and apple puree, your littles will love it!
