Sweet potato chocolate loaf

Sweet potato chocolate loaf

*** Dairy free, egg free, gluten free and no added sugar ***

Ingredients

150g sweet potato (peeled and chopped)

1 apple (peel and cored)

1 carrot (chopped)

100g nut butter (alternatively vegan butter can be used)

200g plain flour (any flour will work)

30g cocoa powder

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius
  • Boil the sweet potato, apple and carrot until very soft. Drain of most of the water, leaving about a tablespoon of water in the saucepan. Add the nut butter and mash well until smooth (I find it’s easier to use a hand blender to get it smooth).
  • Add the flour and cocoa powder and mix until completely combined. Any additional ingredients will be added at this stage. Add a little water if it’s too dry.
  • Put in a loaf tin
  • Bake in oven for 45/50 minutes.

Alternatives

  • Add 1 tablespoon of golden syrup/maple syrup/honey.
  • Add 50g chopped nuts
  • Add a large tablespoon of chocolate spread
  • Add 50g chocolate chips
  • Add 50g raisins or dried fruit
  • Add one grated apple/carrot
  • Replace the 50g cocoa with an extra 50g flour.
