The best part is that no butter, oil, flour or sugar was needed to provide the amazing taste and texture- The mashed sweet potato and proportions of other ingredients are to thank for it!

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. I made these today because I was going to make some sweet potato brownies and realised I didn’t have any dates (which I normally use) so was frantically googling to find a recipe that didn’t have dates in and came across this. The brownies have turned out absolutely amazingly! They’re fairly gooey so I think I probably should have baked them for a little longer but oh well! I subbed the nut butter for vegan chocolate spread, which was a very good idea on my part because oh my they are beautifully chocolatey!

  2. May I know how much will this yield? If I wanna make this for my 1 year old baby during his birthday celebration, around 30 people, how will the amount of ingredients changed? Kindly advise ><

  3. Hi! I really really want to try this recipe but Nut allergy alert. What can I sub nut butter with? Thanks !

  4. I just popped these into the oven. First time making them. I chose not to add choc chips. The batter was good as I licked it off the mixers. 🙂

  5. I’d like to try this! Curious what kind of sweet potato you use? The common orange flesh type us Americans use for thanksgiving?

  6. This may be a silly question but how do you know these are cooked through? I’m unsure if ive’ve left in long enough to cook? Tasty though just quite mushy is this right?

  7. I just tried these and they are amazing! I did have to leave them in for longer than 20 min though, but maybe it’s just my oven. They are also better once they are cooled down because they firm up. Thanks for recipe! 🙂

  8. Hi,

    First of all, thanks for the recipe. I have three questions.

    1. Do I steam, boil or oven the sweet potatoes?
    2. Do i keep the skin on?
    3. Do I cook them completely or enough to mix with the cacao powder?

    Thanks,
    Qing
