As always, these brownies are even more delicious once cooled completely and refrigerated. Those who enjoy brownies this way already know that!

How to make sweet potato brownies

The Ingredients

  • Sweet Potato. A mashed and cooled sweet potato provides the starch base and a deliciously fudgy texture. 
  • Maple Syrup. 100% pure maple syrup provides sweetness, along with an even fudgier texture. A little goes a long way, and you won’t even TASTE the maple flavor. 
  • Almond Butter. Drippy and smooth almond butter adds healthy fats! Be sure to use one that has no added sugar or salt. 
  • Cocoa Powder. Obviously needed for the chocolate flavor, right? 

The Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a loaf pan or small square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a high-speed blender or food processor, add all your ingredients and blend until a smooth batter remains.
  3. Transfer your sweet potato brownie batter into the lined pan. Top with optional chocolate chips and place in the oven. Bake brownies for 18-20 minutes, or until the brownies are cooked through.
  4. Remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan completely, before slicing into pieces.

Storing, freezing and thawing sweet potato brownies

  • To store. Place cooled brownies in a sealed container and keep them in the fridge. Brownies refrigerated will keep fresh for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze. You can freeze sweet potato brownies! Wrap brownies individually in parchment paper and place them in a ziplock bag. Brownies kept in the freezer will keep fresh for up to 6 months. 
  • To thaw. Thaw brownies by keeping them out at room temperature or in the fridge overnight.

    1. The recipe sounds really incredible and simple and I’m definitely going to try this out as soon as I can (i/e tomorrow) 🙂 Can I just ask how many brownies this recipe would make? Thank you!

      1. I suddenly can’t get enough sweet potatoes!.. I have tried the black bean brownies and they were meh… I think these will be better, I do have realistic expectations of course! I wonder if I can sub honey for the pure maple syrup, I don’t have any on hand. ?

    2. OMG! This is lush!
      I made it without the sugar and used 100% cacao drop.
      Soooooo pleased I made double quantity!!

    3. These are so good! I skipped the choco chips and used chocolate vegan protein powder cause didn’t have cocoa – worked out perfect. Thank you!!

    7. This recipes looks so good..I have a diabetic grandson,so I need to know how many carb’s are in this recipe ,if you could help me out, I would be very grateful

      1. Hi Joyce! For sure- If you add the ingredients into myfitnesspal or another calorie calculator, it will provide it for you 🙂 You can then be more specific depending on how many pieces you get from a batch! 🙂

    8. These are great. I added 1/2 of a banana, sliced and mixed in with the hot yams before adding the cacao powder. I also increased the cooking time another 10 minutes. Perfection! The banana helps take away a bit of the chalkiness.
