Sweet Potato Brownies are moist, sweet and delicious. This recipe is simple and great to make with your kids.
Finn was delighted when he was given these delicious sweet potato brownies as a snack today. Brownies aren’t something that Finn gets to eat very often. However, this version is packed full of sweet potatoes (full of nutrients) and sweet, sticky dates (a rich source of energy, vitamins and minerals.)
These sweet potato brownies contain honey. Honey can, very occasionally, contain a spore of a bacterium called clostridium botulinum. This can cause a rare form of food poisoning in babies so please eliminate the honey if making them for under ones.
