Chocolate yes! Almonds yes! Kumara... sure?

I love reading anything food related, the more creative the better. So when I started frequenting vegan and paleo blogs I knew I too had to try some sweet treats with kumara.

After many, many batches I believe this recipe will provide you with some of the most scrumptious brownies you'll ever try!  And yes, I have definitely enjoyed these for breakfast a time or two!


  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  2. Bake kumara until very soft. I just microwave mine on high for 15 minutes.
  3. Once cool enough, slice them in half and scoop out the golden goodness leaving the skins behind.
  4. Soak 5 pitted dates in hot water for at least 2 minutes. Then blend the dates and water in food processor for about 30 seconds, then add in your kumara and blend until pureed.
  5. Melt down 70% chocolate then add in your kumara mixture along with cocoa, ground almond, coconut flour and mix well.
  6. Pour mixture into a greased 20cmx30cm tin, spread out evenly and bake for 20 minutes.


  1. Melt down chocolate with coconut oil and mix well.
  2. Once left to cool for 5 minutes smooth all over your cooled brownies, slice and enjoy!
