The best healthy Vegan Hazelnut Brownies

I have been baking healthy sweets for the past 3 years and I think these healthy vegan hazelnut brownies are my ultimate favourites!! Sweet enough, healthy and taste like nutella when you bite into the roasted hazelnuts combined with the gooey chocolate brownies. I love them! They disappeared within one day in our house! Like most sweets I bake with 3 children and 2 adults haha

For the nitty gritty they are also quite allergy-friendly as they are soy-free, egg-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free and gluten-free. They are however not nut-free! but if you can have some nuts this recipe might be for you!

I think hazelnuts are my favourite nuts to use in baking I have so many recipes that use hazelnuts on my website already!

Why are these vegan hazelnut brownies healthy? Because they are made with sweet potato! For the sceptics- you cannot taste sweet potato in baked goods!
