Not only is this gooey brownie from Flexi Vegan Diary a delicious treat, but it’s also surprisingly healthy. Made gluten-free and without refined sugar, the bulk of the brownies is made using sweet potato and medjool dates. Both are packed with immune-boosting antioxidants while the former is extremely high in fibre.

This makes is a slow burning starch, meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar and insulin levels, while also having numerous benefits in terms of your gut health.
