Sweet Potato Brownies

Total Time: 20minutes

Yield: 12-16 brownies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sweet potato puree
  • 1 cup peanut or almond butter OR allergy-friendly substitution
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp flour (oat, white, or spelt flour all work)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (+ more for the top – optional)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar of choice
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 160C. Line an 20cm pan with baking paper (or grease well). Gently heat your nut butter until liquid enough to stir easily. Transfer to a large bowl and whisk in sweet potato and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together all remaining ingredients (this is the dry mixture) – make sure that baking soda is evenly incorporated! Pour dry mixture into wet mixture (not the other way around) and mix together.
  • Using a spatula, scoop out mixture and smooth into the prepared pan. Use a second sheet of baking paper to really smooth it down evenly.
  • Bake on middle oven rack for 20 minutes. It will look a little underdone, but it firms up as it cools. (If for some reason yours is still too gooey after cooling, loosely cover and let it sit in the fridge a few hours.)Nutrition breakdown based on 16 brownie yield
